    HJ Sonderstempel

    Hello Garry,

    Thanks. Im glad you like the sonderstempel I have posted. Yes, you are correct some of the special cancels are indeed rare. They were only utilized during the time of the event they depict. If it was a one day event held only in one location then that was the length of time they were utilized.

    Smaller HJ and/or DJ events held in smaller more obscure locations are very difficult to find today.

    Many collectors today are not aware of the fact the Postal Service in Third Reich Germany was widely utilized by the NSDAP and organizations thereof as a means of getting their message across. Not only were large, eye catching sonderstempel used but commemorative postage stamps and well designed, brilliantly colored, attention gathering Postcards were also used.

    HJ Sonderstempel - 1939 Hochlandlager

    I just realized I made an error in one of my earlier posts to this thread. That error being with regard to the large machine cancel for HJ Hochlandlager 1939 shown at the top of this photo. Earlier I stated I only knew of this particular sonderstempel being used for the years 1935, 1936, 1937 and 1938 inadvertantly leaving 1939 out. 1939 exists also with 1935 being the scarcest.

    This photo depicts several different Sonderstempel which were stamped on an improvisted piece of cardstock cut down to postcard size.

    Definitely not boring Arrow :) Yes, makes sense as you say that they would go to the effort of making these Sonderstempel for one-time use for propaganda purposes. I wonder what the postal service did with them later.. Have you seen any of the actual stamps on other sites at all?

    HJ Sonderstempel inquiry

    Hello Garry,

    Thanks for your inquiry. First, I have no idea nor any factual information regarding your question of what the Postal Service did with the sonderstempel afterwards. I have heard a few possibilities but nothing which can be supported with documentation and therefore the possibilities are little more than rumor.

    At the time these large attractive sonderstempel were being utilized and particularly so when they were combined with one of the many colorful attention drawing postcards it is easy to see how effective it all was at gaining considerable attention. Postcards at that time were a primary means of communication which is often overlooked today with things like television, internet, computers, etc., which did not exist then.

    There are many sonderstempel of various types and designs and each tells its own story and is a record of history as it happened. Some are quite rare today.

    I will post my lifetime collection of sonderstempel here if you would like to see them. They exist for just about every organization of the NSDAP.
