1920 Mark Overprints II



Watermark 1

On 1 November 1920, Danzig issued this set of overprints with values in Marks.  The stamps are overprints of the German Germania series.

All values are commonly found in two types — those with points of the burelage facing up (Type I) or down (Type II).

Type I (top) & Type II (bottom)
Gray burelage is MiNr 26-31, Violet is MiNr 41-46

Rarer variations also exist with the burelage missing (Type III).

This series differs from the previous Mark Overprints in the color of the burelage — bright lilac gray (MiNr 41-46) versus light (green) gray (MiNr 26-31).
