Germany 1945-1946 AMG Issues.

Query:
Would the selvedge, adhered to this "favour cancelled" cover, be any clue,
as to whether it would be the Brunswick printing, or the Washington Printing?

Or is the paper thickness the only avenue to ID?
Thanks.

Update: I have found part selvedge on 15 pf (no gum) thick paper,
so it was def on the Washington printing.

Rod,

WRT the French Occupation stamps, the reason for the price difference is likely just a matter of quantity printed (see MiNr 5):



The posthorn is part of a cancel depicting the Imperial German postal flag:

It was a very common machine cancel in dozens of cities during the period from about 1903-1909.

Rod,

This is a little outside my area of expertise, but I believe the AMG stamps are Washington printings. Here's Michel's guide to differentiating them, with circles added (click to enlarge). American on left, German on right:

Rod,

If you'll shoot me your mailing address, I have some AMG stamps that I don't need since I don't collect post-1945. Can't guarantee great quality, but they'll fill a couple spaces.

Unknown. Curiosity.
This looks like a faux cancellation.

Postal Stationery, Berlin
"Printed on" part postmark (looks faux)
Writing on the back under the loupe looks like it is printed, rather than hand written.

Any ideas?

What does the "FR" on the Eagles breast, refer to?

Rod,

I'm away from my references at the moment. Bookmarking this thread so I can find it when I get home.

I am curious, so the Arms remain the same, even when the Monarchy changes ?
or would this refer to Frederick lll the time of the stamp?
