Weimar Republic German Empire 1923 Overprint Surcharge Stamp 2 mill on 200 mark. By the Summer of 1923, Weimar Republic hyperinflation was REALLY getting bad. On one hand, the value of the German Mark was decreasing almost every day, and on the other hand, prices were sky-rocketing on a daily basis.The effects on the economy and on the German people were devastating. For the postal service of the Weimar Republic, there existed a state-of-emergency. Beginning in August and proceeding through October of 1923, the postal service began applying re-valuation overprints to existing stocks of low denomination stamps. The re-valuations ranged from 5,000 Marks to 2,000,000 Marks. There are a multitude of varieties on the stamps and their surcharges shown above. These include plate varieties, shade varieties, surcharge varieties, imperforates, missing surcharges, double surcharges, inverted surcharges, postal usages, etc. This could become an extensive philatelic study, for the collector that may be interested in specializing in these issues.
