Wust Use WHW War Stamps. Three German stamps illustrate the beauty of the late medieval architecture of Heidelberg, Bremen and Kaub. The stamps were issued with a surtax to support 'Winter Help Week,' an army charity that gave clothing to German troops who were ill equipped to fight the Soviets and the bitter cold. A ruggedly handsome Wehrmacht soldier is shown in perfect profile next to the stamps. The Nazis tried to associate themselves with imbedded traditon as much as possible, medieval architecure fit nicely with their desire to make them seem part of a German history stretching back centuries. Very rare. 23x17 near mint, conservation backed.
