GERMAN EAST AFRICA Konigsberg/Mowe Provisional Issue

1915-16 3pf Germania (used as 2 1/2h), "Mohoro Deutsch Ostafrika" cancel, v.f. and rare, signed Grobe. A small stock of Germania Deutches Reich stamps were salvaged from the light cruiser "S.M.S. Konigsberg" (scuttled in the Rufiji delta in mid-1915) and the survey ship "S.M.S. Mowe" (sunk in Dar-es-Salaam harbor early in the War).

These stamps were used until late June 1916 when a new supply of regularly issued stamps was delivered,
