Antique Pre-WWI 5 Pfennig Germania German Deutsches Reich 1920s STAMP Dresden. Today we are excited to present for sale this framed 1902 Germania "Deutsches Reich" postal stamp, used in Dresden, Germany until the 1920. Germania stamps are definitive stamps that were issued by the German Empire and the Weimar Republic between 1900 and 1922, depicting Germania. They represent the longest running series in German philately and are in their many variations and derivations an essential part of German philatelic collections. The initial issue from January 1, 1900, replaced the standard issue depicting numbers and eagles.The image of Germania, rather than that of the ruling monarch as was customary in many other European monarchies, made it a unifying feature and did not complicate the relationship with other German royalty and the coexisting German postal authorities of Bavaria and Württemberg. Wearing an octagonal imperial crown she is holding a sword and an olive branch. The Jugendstil design depicting Führing was personally chosen by the emperor Wilhelm II. This Weimar-Republic era stamp depicts Germania in green print and bears a pre-World War II Dresden stamped mark from 1920, well before Dresden was obliterated by war bombings.
The stamp is beautifully matted and mounted in a bespoke giltwood frame with glass front. Stamp presents beautifully and is in excellent antique condition, with very minimal display wear and patina commensurate with age. This rare Germania stamp will make a fine addition to any well-curated Philately collection...Dimensions: 3 1/4" by 3 5/8" (frame); approx. 1" in height by 3/4" in width.
