    Default German stamps - original WW2 era?

    Hey Guys,

    Are these 2 stamps original WW2 or before era? I'm guessing from the type of font, that they're German - probably not military (?)

    Or are they fake?

    Also, can anyone read the text?

    THX in advance!

    Cheers,
    Fabe

    Fabe, these stand a far better chance of being old than most ink stamps out there. I have owned several period ink stamps over the years, some of which resembled the examples shown below. Period stamps came in many various forms - but these could well be from pre-war, note the date 19--

    I would not buy them as part of a Third Reich related collection - but not because I feel they are modern reproductions, more due to the fact that they are quite possibly earlier.

    Rgds,

    Both are stamps denoting receipt of payment...However, the denomination isn't RM-Reichsmarks, nor is it DM-Deutschmarks...it is in M-Marks, telling me that this is likely East German...

    This type of font is known as Fraktur (i think) and has been used from the 15/16th century!....
