Just arrived from the other end of Germany - Friedrichshafen, and at an amazingly reasonable price I thought.

Unfranked, issue of 1. August 1941, there is even one more than I bargained for in the lot ,  with 2 slight colour variations of 6 Pf. example. These are catalogued as DR 781-798

Green stamp on first block,
Posta Ukäinska Narodnja Respublika
100 Griven 100

Probably a wartime or early postwar issue, no mention of CCCP, the central motif seems to be a small chapel or memorial,
possibly on the Crimea (Kapellenberg), no communist symbols apparent.
Post Ukrainian National Republic, Griven probably means some some of guarantee currency in emergency times.
The rest on the first block are all earlier Weimar issues, still a lot of them around here, they are so diverse, I tend
to concentrate on the issues as from 1933.

Fritz Röntgen, the fight against cancer - Röntgen was the discoverer of X-Rays.
Robert Koch, a Berlin doctor had his revolutionary theories about basic health and the comibination of light, sunlight and fresh air in the fight against diseases and "Schwindsucht" (consumtion).
Gregor Mendel drew up his theories on heredity and evolution.
Das "Braune Band" or brown ribbon was an award for racing.

The red 2.50 M stamp in the first block commemorates the founding of the German Empire in 1871, this is probably the last of the 1919/20 issue, during the first days of the Weimar Republic.

Thanks Paul, wasn't sure what that stamp was.

Here's some stamps from Hungary I've managed to date, top four issued in 1900, bottom row from left to right

issue dates are 1903, 1913, 1916, and 1918 over stamped with the word KOZTARSASAG means Republic.

Nice stamps guys, I see you have the Heydrich stamp Fritz, this has always been one of my favourite Third Reich stamps, issued by the Protectorate of Bohemia & Moravia the Czech part of the former Czechoslovakia. The stamp was issued on the 28th May 1943 to mark the first anniversary of the attack on Reinhard Heydrich. The stamp features Heydrich's Death mask and the currency on the stamp is not actually in Marks and Pfennigs but in the Protectorate's own currency the Koruna or Crown. Interesting to note on the stamps that Hitler did not appear on any stamps until 1937 whilst Hindenburg was on the stamps until 1941 and was still valid up to 1945. Here's a close up of the Heydrich stamp.

Yes, this was a nice stamp, bought with a few others several years ago - at the moment things like this are no longer being sold openly, some dealers won't even touch them, if I hadn't found this one in that department of Karstadt about 10 years ago, I probably would not have known it existed. I unfortunately parted with my excellent catalogue nearly 20 years ago, which was an invaluable guide and with almost full size colour illustrations of all German stamps till May 1945 (Michel Katalog, Deutschland bis 1945)

As for the Hungarian stamps, these are Newland to me, but very nice.

Not sure if you class these as postage stamps, these are on official documents.

1898 2 Kronen stamp, and 1934 25 Groschen stamp.
