(wm) At the end of February of this year a German Goethe block got lost in the mail. The block (the Michel catalogue number is Block 6) can be described as rather distinctive, because it has been obliterated with a special hand stamp, bearing the text „(10 b) LEIPZIG C1, 1749 Goethe 1949 / 28.8.49-19". The exact dimensions of the block are 105:106 mm.
The block has been proofed by the German philatelic expert Siegfried Paul, who assessed the block, 3 June 2015 (certificate no. 7891/15), as genuine.
