1945.5 provisional cancels ... Saxony Blacks





can anyone source these ?




these are examples of cancels that appeared in soviet zone after 1945.5.  as as russian printings came onstream 1946, they were withdrawn.  some forgeries exist also.  the obliterators varied from thumbprints, cork, woodblock, rubber and metal handstamps.  the early period 5 may- 30 june show these first forms...

of types seen on the web - not all are listed by michel specialised 2009.  perhaps they were prepared and never served postal duty.   reprints ?

stampboards.com  offers a fine archive search: 1945 locals



 I will trade for these ...
