LEITMERITZ AUSTRIA (Bogus issue)

Return To Catalogue - Austria


The Leitmeritz stamps are examples of bogus issues. They were issued somewhere in the 19th century purely to earn money from stamp collectors. They were listed in the Arthur Maury Catalogue of 1875.

1867 (?) Bogus issues, inscription 'Leitmeritz Express Compagnie Ed. Hofer'

The stamps below were printed in black on coloured paper (11 different colours), in the values 5 k (value), 10 k (value), 15 k (value), 25 k (value in triangle) and 50 k (a pigeon carrying a letter).

Local issues?

Other design, not listed in the Arthur Maury catalogue:


(Reduced sizes)

In this lion design I have seen 2 Kr red, 3 Kr yellow, 4 Kr brown, 4 Kr orange, 12 Kr blue, 15 Kr lilac and 50 Kr green. The value inscription is always in black. I have also seen a yellow stamp without any value or 'kr'.
