Saar:
Last month, we advised on our acquisition of some proofs of Saar which included a high quality proof of a Saar design which is usually described as railway but rarely mentions the presence of a locomotive. This month we are offering all the proofs that we acquired of these 3pf and 15pf values. Some of the stamps have a small owner's handstamp on the gummed side.

Please note that if you happen to collect Saar, we also have several dozen proofs of the non-railway values from the same set of 1922 Saar scenes. Please send an email if you would like more details.
