I found a bunch of these (just one example shown) in a recently bought collection and although they all depict German WWI players, they are all denominated in 'Heller.'
As far as I can recall, Heller were used in Germany but only up to unification in the 1870's. Meanwhile, Heller were used in Austria including during WWI.
So....my question is: are these Austrian or German Cinderella stamps? The one shown depicts Admiral Freiherr von Tirpitz, Secretary of State of the German Imperial Naval Office.

Nothing here.
Would guess Austria, seen previous heads of govt cinderellas at 5 heller.

I do not understand the star and crescent insignia with six pointed star.

May we have the other vignettes ID, to assist?

It must be Austrian, and I presume that the crescent reflects the Ottomans' alliance with the central powers during WWI.

Cheers Geoff.
Tirpitz again, in Grey.
Unlisted in Richard C Witt's Austrian Cinderellas.

Amazing after all these years, new stamps and labels pop up,
and defy identification.

ID as Austria

K.u.k. Some modern authors restrict its use to the Dual Monarchy of Austria-Hungary from 1867 to 1918

I agree and the Turkish emblem fits nicely with the German arms at the top left and the Austro-Hungarian arms at the top right.

Oops - missed those, Nigel! I was beginning to wonder if it were designed for sale to the A-H population in Stamboul!

Nice labels.

I've not seen them before and some of these officers are new names to me.

I was intrigued to read about the life of Erzherzog / Archduke Eugen:
