Good Evening
Hope yor are well.

In the 60's I received many stamps from an uncle, among them are some sheets like the one I'm posting.
My main question is that I could not identify the green + black 5Pfg stamp .... Can anyone clarify for me?

For now, ok, I would also like to know the best way to remove the stamps from the leaves without damaging them, if I decide to remove some of it.

Thanks in advance.

Wagner

It's the standard issue overprinted with black edges as a memorial to Hindenburg after his death.

For all but the couple of mint stamps at the bottom, put the page in water and let the stamoos soak off.

Remove very gently from the paper - paper away from stamp, rather than stamp away from paper. If they're stuck down, you'll have to soak those too. Not too much angst, as they're common stamps!
