SKU: unused envelope bearing the black 'Palmenstempel' Categories: ,


You are bidding on a FANTASTIC and 100% ORIGINAL example of a WW2 German Wehrmacht DAK “Palmenstempel” Envelope and Blank Feldpost Stationary!


The “Palmstempel” or  “Afrika Korps Cachets” were originally concluded as being the simple the handi-work of rear area troops reflecting their pride in the Afrika Korps.  Through research in cooperation with the Bundesarchiv; along with confirmations from ex-Afrika Korps Postal Officials, the ink stamps were not applied to the envelopes by individual senders, but rather at Unit or Feldpost level.   This is backed up by Afrika Korps veterans who recall their families receiving the letters in Germany with the stamp applied, having never applied it themselves.

Made of lightweight paper,  these items are in EXCELLENT unused condition!  The envelope features the textbook “Palmstempel” ink stamp on the left side, consisting of a Palm Tree with “DAK” below it.  The reverse features an official Crescent and Star Emblem of the Ottoman Empire.  Comes with 2 blank Feldpost Stationary.  A SUPERB piece of history, it would make a PERFECT addition to any collection!

Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

——————- TERMS OF SALE —————–

Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage.

——————- ABOUT ME —————–

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
