I have a bunch of German stamps that are giving me fits. Here's one from someplace "...NLIMBURG" I realize there are several Limburgs, but can find no place which has something in front of the letters "LIMBURG".

Can anyone give me a suggestion as to what postal location this would be?

Thanks in advance!

Possibly Hohenlimburg.

Seems to fit nicely.

Good luck.

You can identify the postmarks on the website "philastempel.de"
In the "orstname" window you can also enter a partial name, but you have to search through hundreds of stamps that have a letter group in their name.
I found it with "nlimburg":

In use from approximately 1874 to 1880.

I love it when I see a stamp held by tongs like that
So professional.
A great image!

I think it worth repeating a fabulous resource of German States Numerals. by "Greaden"

Thanks Rod :) I knew you would be proud ha - jk. Thanks for re-sharing the link (wow that is some list) - I know I always find interesting postmarks on my German stamps but I could not remember where I had posted previously. Very helpful.

Gracias.

Hi hornet! Oh wow. Very interesting. What is the best place for me learn about this plate flaw? Any guides or maybe a search on the forum? Thank you for pointing that out so I can note it in my album.

Here's the catalog listing for that plate flaw. From the ArGe Krone/Adler's Freimarkenausgabe PFENNIGE Deutsches Reich 1875 Herstellung und Plattenfehler.

The text roughly translates as "upper center point open; this error comes in different types with different minor errors."

Thank you both so much. Postmaster that is excellent. It is interesting about my German stamps. When I started collecting about 2 years ago, I would buy a lot of cheap World Wide Lots - 1100 stamps at a time. That helped me learn, I love sorting and it also helped me build something up, help me decide where to focus. I decided pretty quickly to focus on Mexico, France, GB and recently I started some Sweden pages.

In order to fuel my new stamp passion, I decided to try selling some of my German stamps - I had so many (for a novice) - I sold a few lots/stamps. Now in order for me to sell those stamps I had to study them and be as precise as possible in my listing. Through that process I have learned a lot since Germany is so complex. So where am I now, ha - I've started building my own Germany album pages. I just couldn't help myself. Maybe I'll look to sell my MNH China stamps.

Thank you - I will note this in my Album.

Nice pick up Hornet

Illustrates my opinion that good Catalogues drive Philately.
Postmaster's ID, makes it that more enjoyable.
