Lodz (Litzmannstadt) Post Office Overstamps

50p-w-stamps-BACKS

Another way the Lodz Post Office tried to aliviate the small change shortage was to overstamp 50 pfennig notes with 10 and two 20 pfennig overstamps.  The plan was to cut the notes to create the smaller denominations.  Partial notes have not been found.  Care must be taken when buying these notes as many reproductions have been produced.
