However, with the fall of the Generalgouvernement to the Red Army, the designs of all stamps were never completed, and those already printed were not issued. This series is popularly referred to as the "Gorale" (highlanders), after the Goral couple in the 24gr design. The stamps depict: I - Drilling Rig, II - Gorale Couple, III - Orthodox Church in Tatarow as well as 12gr stamp (Mi. A1) depicting a horse-drawn wagon)
