As reconstruction began after World War II in Luxembourg, printing new revenue stamps was a low priority.  Instead, the G.D. Charlotte 3rd Series definitives, issued in 1944 and 1946, were used.  Thus, we often find these stamps with government-agency fiscal cancels, such as you see here, particularly the higher denominations.  But uses on documents are scarce.
