    PS....The first class stamp in the above scan was originally issued in 2003 as part of the Pubs Signs issues.The Station was quite a common name for a pub......

    Lok DDR 371.jpg Lok DDR 415.jpg
    First "Five Year Plan" definitives.
    Upper stamp:Lithography-print,issued Aug.10th,1953 (Michel no.371),
    from a set of 18;
    Lower stamp: Typography-print,issued Nov.21st,1953(Mi.no.415),
    from a set of 18;
    Of both sets exist reprints from 1957.The reprints were sold with machine-printed cancellation only.The reprints were produced in big numbers (20 millions sets each) mainly for export.They can rather
    easily be distiguished from the originals.They cost only a small percentage of the original sets.
    The Typo-print version was reissued in April 1957 (Mi.no.581A) in a slightly (very slightly) brighter colour,on a paper with a different watermark (DDR Kreuzblüten instead of DDR Posthorn).

    After having posted the above post,I had a look at the stamps again.
    The difference in colour between Mi.nos.415 and 581A looks to me
    bigger than I had thought.(I am not yet familiar with my recently
    purchased DDR collection and will have a lot to learn !)
    Here the two stamps for comparison: 415 upper,581A lower
    Lok DDR 415.jpg
    Lok DDR 581.jpg
    Mi.581A was in a set of 9 the only stamp,what exists perf.13 x 12.5 only.
    The others Mi.577B-80B,582B-85B were also issued perf.14,starting
    in May 1958 till December 1959.The images of the "B-series" are
    slightly higher than those of the "A-series",22,5 mm vers.22 mm.
    There are also some minor differences in the designs of some of the stamps.
