Description

These postage stamps were sold in the prison camp in Ruhleben to support a private postal system inside the facility. In addition to regular postage stamps, the postal authorities issued a postage due stamp and an administration (on service) stamp. The Reichspost ended the postage stamp service since it infringed on the German Post Office's mail monopoly and violated the law.
