Nice Stamp Collection photos

A few nice stamp collection images I found:

British Himmler Stamp
stamp collection
Image by The National Archives UK
Description: The stamp on the left is a fake. Only Adolf Hitler’s portrait was permitted on German stamps but British agents produced these Himmler stamps in order to destablise the Nazi regime by suggesting that SS Leader Heinrich Himmler was plotting a coup and these stamps had leaked out early.

Date: World War Two

Our Catalogue Reference: HS 6/641
