This page was originally initiated by a donation of marks from the collection of Karl-Hans Schneider, Euskirchen, Germany in July 2000. The section have since then been greatly extended by several contributors such as Michaela Russel, Australia, Cordelia Bay, USA, Walt Brygier, USA, Bonnie Hoffmann, Harmen Lensink and Simon Ng, Hong Kong, whose translations and personal efforts in researching the origin and dates of the different marks is and has been an invaluable resource.
Readers are invited to supply any information and further marks you might have.
