After spending a fair amount of time trying to find these I figured let's go to the more experienced. The first is obviously Hitler and similar to type A116 but has the additional General Gouvernment that I could not find anywhere. The second two look to me like Scott 578 & 579 but there is no Scott notation for overprints.
Help Please and thanks for looking.

Wheelman,

On the first one try Poland - Occupation Stamps. (N94)

The first is Poland, German occupation (World War 2). They are all inscribed "Generalgouvernement". In Scott.

The other 2 are (supposed) Soviet Zone issues before the area became East Germany. There are many different zone numbers/town overprints, with many forgeries and fakes. Not in Scott.

Overprint is "36 Michendorf" (part of Potsdam), they were done around 1948. If I'm reading my old Michel right (not at all a sure thing with my German), the 24pfg with that overprint is not common, but of course could be forgery.

The "36 Michendorf" overprint is noted in Michel as having been forged in considerable quantities. Even if the stamp has an old expertization mark on the back it will need to be re-expertized (per Michel).
