    Default Third Reich Postal Issues

    This is an example of what you have to watch out for when purchasing on ebay or from other venues. There is someone over bidding on this item and I don't believe he realizes that the entire cover is a forgery. This Feldpost Admission Stamp for troops in North Africa is, in my opinion, the rarest of T.R. stamps and it was rarely, if ever used on envelopes, only on packages. Thus the name "Tunis Paken". The Palm stamp "Palmenstempel"is also bogus. The second one is also completely bogus. Made to appear as a label on a package.

    John... Unfortunately, individuals that are not involved in collecting postal items, stamps, covers etc., these and many other fraudulent issues fool the average militaria collector. I see covers, such as these, intermingled with legitimate ones at militaria dealer tables at the shows.

    My interest in militaria, specifically the U.S. wartime postal issues began back in the early 1940's. I still have my beginning collection and sometime in the 1980's I expanded it to the T.R. issues and then about ten years ago I began to delve into the fraudulent and fantasy issues of the T.R.

    Here is another type of bogus type of cover containing a knock-off fantasy stamp of the propaganda issue by the OSS to be aware of.

    Most of the T.R. issues are considered as common and do not command a high price, only a couple issues. One thing that collectors should be aware of is the last two issues of the T.R. The SA & SS stamps. These were only sold for a very short period and only in a couple of Berlin postal locations. In postal cancelled condition they are both costly and rare.

    The two stamps are bogus as is the cover. I believe that the two green stamps at the left are genuine. Those who produce bogus covers will sometimes combine other genuine stamps with the forgeries to throw the novice collector off.
