A well-known motif now adorns a stamp.

The Sylvenstein memory.

Among other things, because a village had to be relocated for its construction, it is given the honor of its own brand.

Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen/Lenggries – 52 new stamps are issued every year.

This year, residents of the district can discover a motif they are familiar with on a 100-cent stamp: the Sylvenstein granary.

Due to these special features Sylvensteinspeicher gets its own brand

According to Klaus-Dieter Nawrath, press spokesman for the south of the Post, the stamp will appear in the “Germany from above” series.

You can see "a bird's-eye view of the turquoise-green reservoir in the upper Isarwinkel".

The Sylvenstein gets the honor of having its own brand because of a few special features: that not only roads but the village of Fall had to be relocated for the construction, for example.

That the dam serves both to protect against flooding and to generate electricity.

And last but not least because of the unprecedented nature, which the post speaker calls "fjord-like".

As he further reports, since 2021 Swiss Post has provided stamps with a unique, forgery-proof matrix code on the right edge of the stamp.

As a result, the postage stamps have become somewhat larger overall, which offers more possibilities for motif design.

Tokens available in multiple locations - Exchange day on June 25th

The stamps will be available in the post offices, but also from the stamp friends.

"On June 25th we have a big exchange day in the small Kursaal in Bad Tölz, the post office will be there with an event team and will also sell stamps," reports Stefan Kirschneck from the stamp friends.

He immediately noticed the new brand in a trade journal.

"There are nicer motifs, but with the Kehrdruck it's something special."

Information stand for the commemorative stamp

Only the value of 100 cents or two euros - it is a motif across two stamps - is unfavorable.

"There's actually no need for that." He therefore suspects that the brand will not be as popular with collectors.

Deutsche Post will also be there with an information stand in Lenggries on Sunday, August 7th and Monday, August 8th.

Interested parties can obtain information on the special stamp on these two days.

Several motifs from the district have already adorned a stamp

Incidentally, this is not the first time that a motif from the district has been printed on a stamp.

There was one from 2005 showing the Kraftpostbus that ran between Tölz and Lenggries.

In 2012 the Brauneck was immortalized.

And there is a Leonhardi brand that, according to Stefan Kirschneck, is still in the range.

With its value of 45 cents and because of its motif, it is "very popular".

A drop of bitterness for him is that more and more self-adhesive stamps are gaining the upper hand.

"They are less desirable for collectors." The old brands are welcome, the new ones less so.

There are also no young people who continue to collect.

"Collecting stamps is probably a game that is coming to an end."
