Marshall Islands Stamps

Marshall Islands Stamps 1897-1916




   #1-6 First Stamps, "Marschall Inseln"
The Marshall Islands became a German Colony October 15, 1885.

German stamps were used until 1897 when the Germans overprinted
1889 issues "Marschall-Inseln" diagonally.


   7-12 "Marshall-Inseln" No "C"
 In 1899 the overprint was altered to drop the "C" from the name creating a new stamp.


 
#13-25, 1901 Kaiser's Yacht
 In 1901 stamps picturing the Kaiser's yacht, "Hohenzollern" were issued for Germany's colonies; typographed, engraved and without watermark.


 
#26-27
The three pfennig and Five Mark stamps were re-issued in 1916 on watermarked paper with a "lozenges" pattern. They were printed and sold in Berlin only.
