MI ** 9.80DM 01 Oct 98 Cartoon Tortoise ** This item is listed in a specialized Michel catalog of German stamps. The number is PZ6.1./02. It is a mailing label issued by Deutsche Post for prepaying postage on packages up to 20 kg in wt. This mailing label serves the same purpose as a stamp; it verifies that postage has been paid for the posted item but it also has space for the address and return address. Not a stamp in the normal sense, but it serves exactly the same purpose as a stamp. Tortoise is one of many small cartoon figures on label.
