nethryk I agree, these typos kind of grow on you.
They're not pretty for the most part and some are downright ugly
but they have character.

These 3 typography stamps were issued in 1918 for Kaiser-Karl-Woche (week)
They portray the last Austrian Emperor, Charles I and his wife
the Empress Zita. The surcharge was for the so-called
Kaiser Karl Fonds.
Karl died young, age 34 in 1922
Zita died very old, age 96 in 1989

Austrian-Hungarian Military Post

Michel 73-75

Here is an image of a stamp depicting an ancient Carthaginian galley, designed by French artist Louis-Jules Dumoulin (1860-1924), engraved by Jules-Jacques Puyplat, printed by typography, and issued for use in Tunisia in 1906, Scott No. 52. The design elements in the stamp's border are also intriguing.

Here is the original Czechoslovakian 1919 stamp of the chain
breaking lion symbolizing an independent Czech and Slovak state
(there were actually considerably more German Austrians than Slovaks but I suppose calling it Czechdeutschslovakia was just too cumbersome)

Designer: J. Obrovsky
Printing : Typography

Michel 36



The same design was used on the SS issued for the 50th anniversary
of the state but this time it was engraved.

Engraver : J. Hercik

Scott 1581

All Argentina catalogues and handbooks refer to both stamps as printed in typography! But they are wrong!

It only shows how difficult this subject may be....

Rein, there are some cases where I still have difficulty
differentiating between typography and direct lithography
printed stamps.
