    Nick i've never seen a stamp such as this on any Feldpost envelope , not sure why it would be used in the Feldpost system as it would be pointless having the nummer system if unit stamps were used. Bearing in mind the Krakau location and the fact that most of the modern fake SS Stamps are Polish made i'm very dubious about this one !!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Does seem a rather fancy stamp Nick. And like Paul, I haven't seen anything marked in this way before. I have seen that form of ink stamp present on reproduction pieces too, which worries me.
