Emperor Karl of Austria

£89.00

The stamp design, featuring Emperor Karl of Austria was used in many areas during the war, with the bottom intentionally left blank so that local denominations could be printed on the stamp.

  

“In 1917, during the occupation of Romania by the Central Powers, Germany and Austria-Hungary issued occupation postage stamps.

The Austrian stamps used KuK FELD POST stamps surcharged into Romanian currency (bani and lei).

The stamp design, featuring Emperor Karl of Austria was used in many areas during the war, with the bottom intentionally left blank so that local denominations could be printed on the stamp.

Seventeen different denominations were issued from 3 bani to 4 lei).

The following year, in 1918, new stamps were issued with the same denominations.

Again, using the KuK FELD POST stamps with an almost identical design, the bottom of the stamp featured an unprinted box for the currency unit to be printed in.

It was felt that it would make the stamps more legible.”
