100 Year Old Anniversary Stamps
Here you can find a range of stamps that are 1o0 years old this year.
SG 299-317 was issued at the end of 1918 after the defeat of Germany and Austria-Hungary in World War One. After the War, the Austria-Hungary Empire was broken up and Austria was a much smaller country. These stamps were the first issued for the smaller Austria. Some people wanted to merge Austria into Germany hence the overprint Deutschossterreich. New definitive sets were issued some months ago.
Denmark. In 1918, the Danes were obviously short of the 27 ore value. They resorted to overprinting the Newspaper stamps that had been issued with two different watermarks (in 1907 and 1914-5). Four of the values with the Crown watermark are very scarce (only 11,000-13,500 printed) especially in fine used condition.
