Recently I have grown fond of the stamps of the 'Deutsches Reich' including the nice postmarks that can be found on them.

I added an image that pictures a few stamps with (near) complete postmarks that I have in my collection.

Unfortunately I know almost nothing about the different postmark types of that era and would like to know if there is an internet site that provides information about what sort of postmarks can be found on Deutsches Reich stamps and their names.
Of course the name of a book that covers this would be welcome too.

Peter

Very nice group. Always glad to see someone interested in cancels, too.

Have a look at:
http://www.briefmarken-universum.de...g/index.html
For Germany proper, click on "Stempel-sammlung" and then click on "Andere Gebiete" when you get there. Not complete, but a good reference and

I think names for these are often pretty generic: single circle (or ring), double circle (or ring), and suchlike. There must be a specific name for the bottom type in German, the style of which has been used by many others around the world. Elsewhere it's been called the bridge type for the shape, and sometimes the German type. In Dutch it's "langebalkstempel".

EDIT: The HERRLINGEN cancel is an older type first used when Wurttemburg was a separate state. It can be found in that section of the above website.

If you have other socked-on-the-nose examples, I encourage you to show them off on this thread:

You can start here:
https://www.stampsx.com/ratgeber/st...atenbank.php
The website lists several hundred thousand postmarks.

If you are looking for books you can start here. The 66 books are only for Deutsches Reich. You can search for other areas of German philately. There are a lot of other book suppliers; I have only listed one (which I have ordered from).

The HERRLINGEN cancel on the 10 pf stamp is a nice one. That particular kind of cancel (3 circles with decoration) is specific to Wuerttemberg and it was in use from the 1850's to around 1910. The two outside circles are just about "used up".
