Mixed Hindenburg Luxemburg & Hitler-head WW2 Frankings: a 153-day Window


Mixed Hindenburg Luxemburg & Hitler-head WW2 Frankings

1 Aug 1941 - 31 Dec 1941

 a 153-day period



25 Rpf Hitler-head & 100 Rpf Hindenburg

Luxemburg 1c
to
Clervaux [bs], 3 Sep 1941

14.9 kg Zone 1 = 1.05 RM
COD fee [160.19 RM] = 20 Rpf

 --------------------------------------

The Hindenburg Luxemburg overprints were valid until the end of 1941.  All Reich stamps became valid in Luxembourg on 1 Apr 1941, but the Hitler-head definitives were first issued on 1 Aug 1941.  And beginning 1 Jan 1942, only Reich stamps were valid for use in Luxemburg.  

Thus, Hindenburg-Hitler head mixed frankings were possible only for 153 days -- from 1 Aug 1941 to 31 Dec 1941.  

Although most such mixed frankings are inexpensive, they are remarkably hard to find.  But if you search for them, your reward will be a nice niche collection.

Here are a few more examples:
