Small Coats of Arms & Views of Danzig

Danzig

wmk4

Watermark 4
Swastikas

In July 1938, Danzig began issuing the first values of this set featuring the small coat of arms and a single value showing a view of Danzig.  The final value of the set to be issued was released in June 1939.

These stamps can be distinguished from prior issues of the same design by the use of a swastika watermark.

All have vertical gum rippling, and the 10 Pfennig value can also be found with horizontal gum rippling.

Coil versions of the 5- and 10-Pfennig values also exist.
