    Following the Liberation of cities in Southern Germany (Stuutgart, Sigmaringen, Ravensburg etc...) by the 1st and 2nd French Armor Divisions, several German stamps have been overprinted . Those overprints, though not officiallty recognised by French postal authorities, have sometimes been used on mail by soldiers and cvilians and are seeked for by collectors.

    Dear Skipper ,
    you have these stamps? If so, what would be the price?

    Kind regards
