1943 General government Scott N80 with Veit Stoss Preis commemorative cancellation. Krakau
Lot 1931
Scott N80 with Veit Stoss Preis commemorative cancellation. Krakau, 19 November 1943
This cancellation commemorates an art show in Krakau with the slogan German Artists See The Generalgouvernement. This time the Veit Stoss Prize was given to the best exhibit.
Although Veit Stoss was born in Nurnberg, he changed his name to Wit Stwosz after he renounced his German citizenship. He adopted Poland as his motherland and took Polish citizenship in 1477 in Krakau. The cancel bears Stoss’ facsimile of his signature which he used on the objet d’art he created, mostly sculptures. The cancellation was used only in Krakau.
