3rd Reich Germany Liquidation of Empire TRINIDAD Propaganda Forgery Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp
Item #:89697
Catalog# :9IVe-14IVe
Gum :Used
Price :US$939
One of the very popular King George VI propaganda forgeries which place the Jewish Star of David on the top of the crown, and a hammer and sickle in place of the pence symbol next to the value at the bottom. A very small number of sets (400 each) were overprinted with a variety of slogans for the territories the British were going to lose. All created by forced labor from inmates in the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp as a part of Operation Wasserwelle under SS Major Bernhard Kreuger (See the or websites), or read the book "Krueger's Men" by Leonard Malkin. '18 CV EUR800++(caUSD936); mixed MNG as issued and 'used' with the listed German-forged London AAAO 6 June 1944 cancel. The same printing numbers as the others (400 sets) but scarcer than some of the seemingly more available like St Lucia and Rabaul. With four Pieles BPP photo certs -- not really necessary as these haven't been successfully copied yet, but still nice.
