1942 The Day of the Stamp Special postmark Berlin
Lot 122
Design by E. Stahl. Photogravure printing on unwatermarked paper at the State Printing Works, Wien. Perforated 14 x 13%. Issued 11 January 1942; valid until 31 December 1942.
The first time the Day of the Stamp was commemorated with a stamp issue.

Four official postal stationery cards were issued for the 1942 Day of the Stamp on two types of cardstock, cream and chamois. Designed by Axster-Heudtlass, they were ordered by the Einheitsorganisation der Deutschen Sammler (United Organization of German Collectors), and sold for 25 Rpf. The cards were also overprinted for Ukraine and Ostland. The card above, Organisation Todt on cream colored stock, is overprinted Ostland. The Gefiilligkeitsstempel (favor cancellation) dated 11 January 1942, Berlin, depicts a posthorn. The initials RdP stand for Reichsbund der Philatelisten, part of the KdF.
