Inscription 'Soldaten-Brief Eigene Angelegenheit des Empfangers' (1889?)
The first labels of this kind were reported in Le Timbre Poste of Moens in 1885 (No. 267, page 21).
'2 kg' on 40 p lilac
brown green (slightly smaller size, 1944)
The brown stamp exists perforated or rouletted.
blue Overprinted 'Inselpost' (rare, several types)
These stamps were issued on isolated island (Insel in German) during world war II. See also http://www.ebay.de/gds/feldpost-echt/10000000001311260/g.html for information on forgeries.
A stamp with inscription 'DEUTSCHE FELDPOST durch Uboot' was issued:
Forgery of this U-boot stamp
I have seen many (modern) forgeries of this stamp on documents addressed to 'Untere Apotheke Dr. OTTO SEITER EDENKOBEN (Pfalz) Fernsprecher 140'. These documents exist in many types and colours. The forgeries always bear the cancel 'GEHEIME - FELD - DIENSTPOST Ge. Sta. Po.' with an eagle in the center (as shown above).
