WWII German Stamps Sheets

Many customers have asked us to offer sets of stamps for working on the Soldbuch, Wehrpass and other Nazi era military and civilian documents, for props and displays. The problem is that to make these documents look realistic requires a lot of different stamps and this can become very expensive. As a solution to this problem we offer sets of rubber stamps in the form of sheets of unmouted stamps, each one painstakingly copied from original documents in our collection. There are no fantasy stamps here, these are all direct reproductions of original stamps from 1935-1945. We take great pride in making exact, perfect copies of original stamps, each one painstakingly edited from high-resolution scans of original paperwork. There are stamps here that can be used for every branch of the Wehrmacht, as well as for the Waffen-SS, and on paperwork for civilians as well. Each sheet measures 5.5 inches by 8 inches and is made from a quality red rubber material, laser etched with precise detail, made in the USA. We will supply each sheet with a sheet of double-sided adhesive foam cushion material for you to mount these stamps to your handles. We will also supply a guide for cutting up the sheet as well as information about each stamp and how it was used.

We don't have any handles to sell, you can buy old stamps and re-use the handles, make your own handles, or simply use wooden blocks. If you need stamps with handles we are happy to offer those individually.

The price for each sheet is $49 plus $3 for shipping in the USA in a padded envelope. These are made to order, the turnaround time is about 1 week. To order, please E-Mail Us at intrenches1945@gmail.com.

Stamp Sheet #2: Wehrpass and civilian documents

Set #2 contains 47 stamps and focuses on the Wehrpass and Nazi-era civilian documents. The Wehrpass was the linchpin of the elaborate array of forms and documents that was used to keep track of every soldier as he moved through training and replacement units, field units, and hospitals. This important document would be issued by the recruiting authority and then kept by the individual as long as he remained a civilian. When he was called up for service, he would turn in the Wehrpass which would then be kept by his unit and would follow him everywhere he went as a permanent record of his military career. These Wehrpass stamps can also be used for other documents including call-up notices and forms related to recruiting, official correspondence, medical forms, and other documents. The civilian administration stamps on the sheet can be used to fill out a wide variety of paperwork used by civilians as well as soldiers including the Kennkarte, Reisepass, the Fuehrerschein, ration cards, birth/death/marriage certificates, reciepts, etc.
