Hi Trixie, and welcome to the forum. Yes you are very close. These stamps are from the German hyper-inflation era of the 1930's.
You can find these and other world stamps on www.stampworld.com .

No, Trixie was right about the date. German hyperinflation was in 1923.

Trixie,

Welcome to the wild and crazy world of stamp collecting. There's always something new to learn. With a bit of patience you'll get it all figured out.

You may want to check with your local library to see if they carry Scott stamp catalogues which will help you to catalogue the stamps you have.

An even better option would be to join a local stamp club if you have one in your area that way you can get some hands on coaching about the hobby.

Good luck!
Bill

Congratulations, you're a German multi-millionaire (and missed your chance to become a multi-billionaire only by a month).
Those stamps are part of the Series Deutsches Reich, Michel-number 277-312 and are very common, unless they're rare varieties which some specialized collectors are interested in.
