I'll have to take a break with the board, as I'll be on vacation without much internet access for about 2 weeks. I'm going exploring some rocks north of the 49th parallel :)

I wish you all a good time for the next weeks!

Saar 1920 overprints.

Wikipedia wrote:SV Saar 05 Saarbrücken is a German sports association based in Saarbrücken, Saarland. The largest club in the state, it is best known for its athletics department, and also fields an association football team.

The club was founded as Fussball Klub Saarbrücken on 8 May 1905 and within three months was re-christened Sport-Club Saar 05 Saarbrücken. From 1919, the club played in the Kreisliga Saar, where it took out a championship in 1920, thereby advancing to the Southern German championship where it got knocked out in the group stage. In October 1933 SC joined Spielverein 05 Saarbrücken, which was itself the product of the 1919 union of 1. FC Germania 1905 and SpVgg 1906, to become SV Saar 05 Saarbrücken. The club made a single season appearance in the first division Gauliga Südwest in 1934–35 and was immediately relegated after a last place finish. SV merged with Deutscher SC in 1939 to become Deutscher SV Saar 05.

After World War II occupying Allied authorities ordered the dissolution of all organizations in Germany, including sports and football associations. In late 1945 the club was re-established as SV Saarbrücken, becoming SV Saar Saarbrücken in 1949, and SV Saar 05 Saarbrücken in 1951. In post-war football the club played in the tier one Oberliga Südwest in 1947–48 and from 1952 to 1963, when the Bundesliga was established. Sara's best result in this era was a fourth place in 1953–54, a place above local rival 1. FC Saarbrücken. The club did not qualify for the new Bundesliga but instead was grouped in the second division Regionalliga Südwest, where it played until 1971.

The 2007–08 season was an absolute low point in the club's long history. The coach, Roland Hippchen, used 18 non-registered players during the season and found himself barred from coaching by the Saar FA. He continued to coach the club nevertheless and upon this, the club too was eventually barred from competing in the Kreisliga A Halberg. With a new team under a new coach, Timon Seibert, the club entered the Kreisliga B Saarbrücken for 2008–09, hoping to improve its fortunes, under the guidance of the SV Saar 05 Jugendfußball, the Kreisliga B being the lowest tier in Saarland football.

Saar 05 began climbing the ranks again quickly to the point where the club played in the states highest football league for two seasons, now the Saarlandliga, winning a league championship in 2014 and earning promotion to the Oberliga Rheinland-Pfalz/Saar. The club won a championship in the Oberliga in the following season, thereby earning promotion to the tier four Regionalliga Südwest, a league local rival 1. FC Saarbrücken played in as well. The club's six promotions in seven seasons were achieved under the leadership of the Seifert family, with Frank Seibert as the chairman of the club while his sons Timon and Eric worked as coaches and their brother David played for the team. SV Saar 05 came last in the Regionalliga in 2015–16 and was relegated back to the Oberliga again.

saar-14v.jpg

Wikipedia wrote:The first stamps of the Saar were contemporary German stamps overprinted "Sarre" (the French name) and with a heavy solid bar striking out the "DEUTSCHES REICH" at the bottom of the stamp. This overprint was applied to 17 denominations, ranging from 2 pfennig to 1 mark, and first went on sale 30 January 1920. The stamps of Bavaria were overprinted similarly, and first available on 1 March. On 26 March, more German overprints were issued, this time reading "SAARGEBIET" (the German language name for Saar Territory) and not striking out the name of the old Reich.

Surcharges of 20pf, 5m, and 10m on German stamps came out in early 1921, followed by the Saar's first definitive series. This was a set of 16 local scenes, ranging from a view of the Saar River near Mettlach to the Burbach Steelworks at Dillingen. The stamps were somewhat rudely typographed and most were printed in two colors; although bordering on the garish, they are striking nevertheless.

On 1 May 1921, the series was surcharged in centimes and francs, and in 1922 it was replaced by a new series of same designs, but redrawn, denominated in the new money, and printed in different colors.

The Madonna of Blieskastel was commemorated by a pair of stamps (45c and 10fr) in 1925, then in 1927 a new definitive series came out, still borrowing designs from the first series, but now in different shapes, and printed in a single color using photogravure. On 1 November 1934, in preparation for the plebiscite the following year, this series was overprinted "VOLKSABSTIMMUNG / 1935"; the plebiscite in January 1935 having gone in favor of rejoining Germany, Saar came under the German postal system.

Wikipedia wrote:Chameleons or chamaeleons (family Chamaeleonidae) are a distinctive and highly specialized clade of Old World lizards with 202 species described as of June 2015. The members of this family are most known for their distinct range of colors as they are able to shift in different hues and brightness. Because of the large number of species in their family, there is a large variability in their ability to change color. For some, it is more of a shift of brightness (shades of brown) whereas others it is a plethora of combinations of colors (reds, yellows, greens, and blues).

Chameleons are distinguished by their zygodactylous feet, their prehensile tail, their laterally compressed bodies, their head casques, their projectile tongues, their swaying gait, and crests or horns on their brow and snout. Chameleons' eyes are independently mobile, and because of this there are two separate, individual images that the brain is analyzing of the chameleon’s environment. When hunting prey, they focus forward in coordination, affording the animal stereoscopic vision. The eyes are able to move laterally 180° and vertically 160°.

Chameleons are adapted for climbing and visual hunting. The use of their prehensile tail offers stability when they are moving or resting while on a branch in the canopy; because of this, their tail is often referred to as a "fifth limb." Another character that is advantageous for being arboreal is how laterally compressed their bodies are; it is important for them to distribute their weight as evenly as possible as it confers stability on twigs and branches in the trees. They live in warm habitats that range from rainforest to desert conditions, with various species occurring in Africa, Madagascar, southern Europe, and across southern Asia as far as Sri Lanka. They have been introduced to Hawaii, California, Raoul Island, and Florida.



And they would clearly be a great thematic subject to collect on stamps!

Hello David = Waffle, Happy Three-Quarters of a Century!

You can see there are some relevant stamps in this Irish greetings set:

Ireland: Greetings stamps
Ireland: Greetings stamps
.
And here's an on-message entry from Australia:

Australia, 2021: Philatelic-Numismatic cover, Happy Birthday!

Confession: I gave my wife one of those for her recent birthday. Even though she's not a stamp collector, the novelty appealed and suited the occasion ;)

Thanks for the kind felicitations from all. Intend to spend a very quiet day with family in Brisbane.
I prefer to collect UK, British Commonwealth esp Pacific area ( not excluding West Indies/Canada ) and Western Europe. At the bottom of my zone of interest is Eastern Europe and communist countries.
