Stamps Sheets for Various WWII German Documents

This page is for stamp sets for various WWII documents. For stamp sets for the WWII Soldbuch, click here.

Since 2011, we have offered sets of stamps for working on Nazi era military and civilian documents, for props and displays. To make these documents look realistic requires a lot of different stamps, which would be expensive to buy individually. We can supply the needed stamps in the form of sheets of unmounted 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, in the correct original size. There are stamps here that can be used for every branch of the Wehrmacht, as well as for the Waffen-SS, and civilian documents as well. Each sheet measures 5.5 inches by 8 inches and is made from top quality, European made, real rubber material, laser etched with precised detail in the USA. Every stamp set comes with a sheet of double-sided adhesive foam cushion material for you to mount these stamps to your handles, a guide for cutting up the sheet, and a guide with information about each stamp and how it was used.

We don't have any handles to sell. You can buy rubber stamp handles from other suppliers, 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 shipping. Most sheets are in stock and ready to ship. To order, please E-Mail Us at intrenches1945@gmail.com.

Shipping rates: The cost to ship one sheet is $5 in the USA, $11 to Canada, $15 to Europe. The cost to ship multiple sheets is $6 in the USA, $18 to Canada, $25 to Europe. Orders will ship in padded envelopes.

Stamp Sheet #4: Waffen-SS

Set #4 contains 42 stamps for the Waffen-SS. None of these appear on any of the other sheets. These are all exact copies of stamps from original documents, I have focused on stamps for the Soldbuch but many of them can also be used on a wide variety of military documents including the Wehrpass and all kinds of IDs, award documents, leave passes, etc. I have tried to choose a representative assortment of different units and unit types with a focus on training and replacement units as these were the units that usually issued the Soldbuch, Führerschein and other basic IDs.

Stamp Sheet #5: Wehrpass and civilian documents

Set #5 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 Führerschein, ration cards, birth/death/marriage certificates, reciepts, etc.
