GERMAN WORLD WAR II OCCUPATION ISSUES Bohemia & Moravia

1943 Reinhardt Heydrich 60+440pf black souvenir sheet, 101x148.5mm, numbered "101" at bottom, never hinged, without the usual gum creases, perfect condition, fresh and v.f., accompanied by a matching numbered folder, with 2004 Eichele certificate (signed Bach, Eichele and Rapp). Only 1,000 of these souvenir sheets were printed. Of those, 500 were given out to Nazi Party and military dignitaries, remainder being destroyed. As many of the recipients and their possessions perished during the closing stages of the war, less than 100 "Heydrich blocks" survive, most with significant defects. A unique opportunity to obtain an excellent example of this World War II German Occupation rarity,
