The first post WW II Austrian Airmails featured planes over landscapes and buildings.
As with most of these long 1940's and early fifties sets the engraving job was shared
amongst the many engravers who worked at the Austrian State Printers at that time.

Herbert Toni Schimek ( 50Gr, S4)
Georg Wimmer (S1)
Rudolf Zenziger (S2)
Rupert Franke (S3, S5, S10)


Scott C47 - C53

Nethryk: I had not seen the Linz State Theatre stamp before. Great "perspective" lines, a wonderful colour and a great frame and with your detailed information I should be able to find it here anytime through the "search" function. Again, thanks!
