The german advertisement stamps 1911 (1)


The German advertisement stamps of 1911 are not tabs. A tab is a sheet margin with postal codes, characters or an illustration. The German advertisement stamps were to create extra income for the Postal Administration. So the stamps are postal issues without franking value. Compare Belgium advertisement stamps or New Zealand stamps with the advertisement on the back.

The German advertisement stamps are coupled to "Germania" stamps. The woman "Germania" on the franking stamps is comparable with "Marianne" in France or "Uncle Sam" in USA.
