Thank you for the correction.
I thought I had read that term from the "Marcel" research of UNICEF.

The text reads "NEDERLANDSCH PLAKZEGEL." A plakzegel was affixed (plakken = to affix, zegel = seal, as in label or stamp) to documents, including receipts, as proof of collection of revenue. They are the most widely used revenue stamps.

Dutch Association for Fiscal Philately (in Dutch) shows a later issue:
https://belastingzegels.nl/fiscaalz...e-plakzegel/

It mentions a catalogue: "catalogus belastingzegels Nederland 1996" by Paul Korte.

22crows is correct: scrolling. These had nothing to do with railways.

Thanks Jill, and NSK
I was almost certain there were tiny trains, with smoke coming from their stacks.

Cheers for the reference, saved.

Referring to the set of Dutch naval heroes: http://goscf.com/t/70915&whichpage=2#683141

The set was issued during the German occupation of the Netherlands.

The 7 1/2 cent stamp shows Admiral Michiel Adriaanszoon de Ruyter. He reformed the Dutch navy and founded the marines corps. He was a key figure during the Anglo-Dutch wars of the late 17th century. In June 1667, he sailed up the Thames Estuary and up the Medway where he raided the English fleet and captured the English flagship HMS Royal Charles.

The German occupiers used the effigy of Admiral De Ruyter for propaganda reminding the Dutch it had not been the first time the English attacked the Dutch and hoping to enlist Dutch soldiers.

Four of the stamps were designed by Sem Louis Hartz who was employed by printers Joh. Enschedé, and Mrs. Engelina Reitsma-Valença.


Designs by S.L. Hartz


Designs by E. Reitsma- Valença

Both Hartz and Reitsma-Valença were Jews and had to hide from the Germans. Nonetheless, their work was used for the stamps. They received their fees for their work through other artists.

That must have taken some pluck!
Nice set of stamps, with full information.

Fast forward 1999 New Zealand stamp
All we get is "Leading the way, splitting the atom"
No date
No name (Rutherford)
How are the kids going to learn?
Bad design NZ!
