Official Seal/Vignette Der SS-und Polizeiführer
I came across this vignette in a stamp lot I purchased at an auction. I've seen a couple of these that were similar, but nothing exactly like this. I searched high and low on the web and came up with absolutely nothing. Has anyone here ever seen one of these?
It reads: Der SS-und Polizeiführer
im Generalgouvernment polen
The eagle + swastika is raised slightly as well.
(The camera flash made the border + eagle appear bright white, but it is actually yellowed/tan colored due to age)
Thank you for reading!

A better image is needed - I'm afraid this is far too bright. Items of this nature did exist, but the genuine examples that I have seen appear very finely detailed. This may well be as such, but the image shown doesn't offer the opportunity for an accurate assessment.
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.
