Wapen-Sammlung : Series 2 Cities and regions


110b.wsa.jpg

Series information :

  • Issued by : A. Weller's Verlag, Kahla in Thüringen, Germany
  • Date of issue : 1900-1920 (?)
  • Number of stamps/cards in this series: ? at least 1225

Background

This is the third series of the album Wappen-Sammlung_(Weller) showing the arms of cities and regions. The series is only numbered up to 100, other numbers are tentative. Stamps were issued in series of 25, but could be glued on the pages randomly. Only when I have a sheet or index, the numbers are confirmed. All 1225 numbers below are confirmed.

Sheet nr 21 was erroneously labelled 501-550, but contained only the numbers 501-525. Sheet 22 was therefore numbered 551-575 and the numbers 526-550 were missing. This was corrected by issuing sheet 23, however, these were again listed as 551-575. In the index thus both Rosenheim and Füssen have number 551.... In the overview below I have numbered sheet 23 as 526-550 with the duplicate number between brackets.

Sheet 23

The same happened for the numbers 926-950 which were also issued twice on sheets 38 and 39. The numbers 976-1000 were not issued, so I numbered sheet 39 as 976-1000 with the sheet numbers in brackets.

The following towns have been published twice with the same arms:

  • Allenburg (465, 851, 465b.wsa.jpg851b.wsa.jpg)

Index of numbers 1-1000 (pdf) : File:Series2-1-1000.pdf (the numbers do not always correspond with the sheets, in all cases the mistakes are in the index, the numbering of the sheets is correct, for example 880 is both Brüssow and Saarmund in the index, but on the sheets it is 880 and 885 respectively)
