    Michel Germany does not list such "stamps".
    But they are listed in Michel Deutschland-Spezial volume I at the very
    end of the catalogue.
    There they also mention two books:
    "Gezähnte Kriegspropaganda",handbook and catalogue
    by Joachim Hosang
    and
    "Forged Stamps of Two World Wars" by L.N.& M.Williams,London.

    By the way the "Himmler Stamps" are listed in the Michel-Spezial
    for € 1200.- (type I) and € 400.- (type II),for mint,n.h.
    Exist also imperforated,from proof-sheets.
    No price for used ones,as all known cancelled ones,without
    any doubt,are cancel-forgeries.
    But still some people pay a lot of money to get fooled.

    This should keep me busy for a while. Decided to start working on a Chile collection. So, I ordered a lot of miscellaneous stamps, partial collections, etc. Several hundred stamps and about a dozen sheets. Included general postage, revenue, air mail, postage due, etc. Should be fun.
