I'll probably get them, they're cheap...
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.
p.s. "Empfang" = reception
Currently working on several KZ related projects, including items for the USHMM, Groß-Rosen Museum and various private concerns and studies. Available as a guide to KZ sites, contact for details.

Thanks for the info! Do you happend to know, which year (about) Germany started to use this font on modern books, paperwork, etc.?
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!....
