May Day


May day

Every May from 1967 to 1989 a special May day stamp was issued the first 9 were the standard Spendenmarken size but the last 14 were larger. Although only available each May most booklets have a few and collecting them all is not too difficult.
The hard to find are those issued between 1946 and 1951.
C2 - unity peace
C3 - International solidarity of the workers.
