Not Quite Royal Wedding


The creator of this stamp sheet bids us imagine the German post office was doing business as usual even as the Russian army was overrunning Berlin, and had the time and wherewithal to design and print a commemorative celebrating the Führer’s wedding to Eva Braun, which was sold to philatelists brave enough to stand in line under a storm of incoming artillery rounds.

In the real world, Hitler and Eva Braun were indeed married on April 29, 1945, in the Führerbunker, and took their own lives the following day. And I have no idea who created this faux postage.
