> Danzig and the WHW

FIFTH and Final Set of Danzig WHW stamps. Mi.#2%4-28%. (For detailed illustrations and description, see DR-88.) They were issued on 28 November 1938 and were valid until 30.6.39. The occasion for this souvenir sheet is the recognition of the people who turned out the handwork that was sold for raising WHIW funds. The special cancel (FigureI 8) also explains the importancc of the makers (and the collectors) ol these small items. At the right is a lucky find by Fred Hehrendt at a flea market. It is a cloth-covered metal shield with a safrly catch that certainly must have been a “collectible” from one of the WIIW Danzig campaigns. A very nice piece of workmanship!
