More Feldpost Postmark Stamps

Feldpost Posted on Tue, November 02, 2010 04:42PM

Just finished this second batch of postal cancellations for my reproduction Feldpost project. I now have stamps prepared for the months of July, September and November 1943 as well as March, May, June, July, September, October and November of 1944, although I could create any date required. These will be on the site soon along with postal stationery for making Feldpost letters to or from the front.

Feldpost Postal Cancellations

I’ve been working on making reproduction Feldpost letters. There is a lot to this project, not only finding the right paper and envelopes but creating stamps for postmarks and replicating and printing stationery, etc. I’m making good progress- here is a scan of some postal cancel stamps I have copied from original letters in my reference collection. Eventually I will have a page on the site featuring the postmarks and stationery for people looking to recreate “mail call” or just have some authentic-looking mail.The next batch will have postmarks from Lueneburg, Hamburg, Allenstein and Bremen and another variation of the military Feldpost cancel.
