I am attempting to add a further CD catalogue of local stamps to the over 20 I have already produced.
I am now trying to work on one for the German modern private posts.
I note that Colnect shows over 8,000, and whereas I have been told that Biberpost otself has over 8,000 (on Colnect only around 580) I realise I have a huge job in front of me.
Should anyone be able to assist me with scans of any issues (trogether with dates of issue) I would be most obliged.

You do indeed have your work cut out for you!

I've always used the dealer's site listed earlier in this thread - http://www.briefmarken-haller.de/node/5/Bund_inkl_Spezialgebiete/Privatpostmarken - as the Michel catalogue is way out of date.
It would certainly be interesting to find out how many issues they may have missed.

Thanks for your suggestion.
I have tried to use the Haller site, but...
One can't just dowload scans from this site only full pages.
Even if I print out a page, when I want to scan to copy to insert
in my catalogue, the scan is not very clear.

Hello, for these post offices, several problems.
Date of issue very difficult to know him.
Broadcast of their stamps in very small quantity.

Here is a wonderful cover sent to me by Philexx using stamps from the Private Post company Brief und mehr:

Cover from George Brief und mehr.jpg

George lives in Bielefeld. The cover is franked with 2x 70c Brief und mehr stamps with COVID-19-related messages, plus 4x 15c definitive stamps, for total franking 2 euros. There is a black barcoded cancel dated 01.07.2020 and the words BMM -> WELT and Briefsendungen.

The letter seems to have gone via Schiedam, Netherlands, judging from the blue cancel (PRIORITY Port Betaald / Port Paye / Pays Bas postnl).

Can anyone explain what BMM means and why there is a postnl cancel on the letter?

Jean :D

BMM is according to the German philatelic sites the large sorting office of the company Postcon (earlier it belonged to PostNL). The sorting office in Germany is Neuss, of course they also use the Dutch networks as they belonged to PostNL until August 2019. I guess that explains the Dutch connection.

https://www.postcon.de/

A nice piece of postal history. I'm sorry about all the 15 cent stamps, it makes it look philatelic, but it's all I could get hold of.

Thank you George. So Postcon is a private mail carrier and Brief und mehr would have passed the letter to them?

And no problem with the 15c stamps, but can you please explain the rate?

Sorry Jean, I seem to have made a mistake with the rate. It should have been International compact letter up to 50g which should be 1.70 euro. So I overpaid on the rate unfortunately. I have sent an email and will send another as I have ten Corona stamps left.

Hello, I have a bunch of covers from German Private Post companies to foreign addresses. Alle are franked with stamps from the companies + a meter franking or a label from othe companies like Dutch TNT, MaltaPost and others. I have attached some examples.

Best wishes
