The stamp shows one of the most famous letters of German philately - the Eichstaett (Oaktown) letter. Discovered in 1959 in the Upper Bavarian Eichstaett and is equipped with a six-block of the first German postage stamp - the black ones ("schwarzer Einser") of the Kingdom of Bavaria. These stamps released on 1 November 1849.

"Black ones" are very rare.

The Ten sheets of this edition has a "security perforation"  between each pair of a horizontal pair in the form of an oak leaf. This means, that there are 2 types of stamps - one with the "hole" right, one left - as shown.

There are brands , such Spezialstanzung on the left or the right face.

In addition there is a nice postal stationery with the same stamp printed thereof, also with the "hole" for no reason. At left is a painting "Der Posthof 1850" (mail court) by Pius A.F.Messerschmitt

The stamp design by Ursula Lautenschlager pictures four issues of the postal district of the North German Confederation. The confederation was established in 1867 following the Second Schleswig War of 1864 pitting Prussia against Denmark, and the 1866 Austro-Prussian War.

King Wilhelm I and Prussian minister president Otto von Bismarck created the confederation dominated by Prussia, unifying the 22 German states north of the Main River.

Postal laws for the confederation went into effect on Jan. 1, 1868, but because a unified currency had not been established, typographed stamps using three different currencies were issued.

The northern district used the thaler for currency, with 30 groschen equaling 1 thaler. Six stamps denominated ¼gr, ⅓gr, ½gr, 1gr, 2gr and 5gr were issued. The text-only design reads “Norddeutscher Postbezirk” (North German Postal District) inside a round double ring (Scott 1-6).

The southern district used the gulden, with 60 kreuzer equaling 1 gulden. Stamps denominated 1kr, 2kr, 3kr, 7kr and 18kr were issued for the southern district (Scott 7-11). The “Norddeutscher Postbezirk” inscription on these stamps appears within an oval.

The four classic issues shown on the new German Stamp Day stamp are the 1gr rose at upper left, 7kr ultramarine at upper right, 1kr green at lower left, and ½gr orange at lower right. Not shown on the new stamp is an example of the third currency variety, a single nondenominated (½-schilling) lilac brown stamp issued in 1868 for use in Hamburg (Scott 12).

The rouletted stamps for all three regions are also known imperforate. Perforated varieties were issued in 1869, and Official stamps for government use appeared in 1870.

The southern German states of Baden, Bavaria, Hesse and Wurttemberg joined with the North German Confederation as France declared war on Prussia. With the French defeat in 1871, the German Empire was declared by Bismarck in Versailles, with Wilhelm I as kaiser (emperor).
