The remaining four labels are really rare; I’ve seen them only on these letters:

3. Danzig=Neufahrwasser: a blue rubber stamp on a plain label, in 1942.

4. Kalthof/Bz.Danzig: a blue rubber stamp on Pieckel/(Freie Stadt Danzig) in 1942 when no “Freie” town existed anymore.

5. Neuteich/(Freie Stadt Danzig): a blue rubber stamp on Marienburg (Wpr) in 1923, when Marienburg was still part of the Reich. This stamp is also found on telegrams overriding the printed “Danzig”.

6. Zoppot: a black rubber stamp on Kokoschken in 1920, which itself was a small place within the Corridor, and belonged to Poland. Called “Kokoszki” in Polish, it is now a suburb of Gdansk, with its own post office: Gdansk 43. The Zoppot stamp was also used for cancelling postage stamps on parcels, and therfore, called in German: Packchenstempel.

That’s all for this time!
