    DeutschOsterreich stamp. Deutsche is Germany, Osterreich is Austria. This is from after World War 1 when Germany and Austria combined. The Allies didn't like that.
    It appears that a collector had bought it, never used it, and merely put a little tape on the back to hold it in his stamp-book. This is a little less common than its red counterpart from what I can tell, but the stamps from this time came in many variants.

      Thanks for the link, but the Austrians and Russians used a double-headed eagle. The Germans used a single-headed eagle.

      I believe the AustroHungraian empire used a double headed eagle. Google Austrian eagle. The Austrians still use it today. Is also quite similar to the German Reichsadler. This type of imperial eagle was replaced by the Weimar eagle that is still used by the Federal republic of Germany.

      It was a quite an interesting and complicated period of history that was reflected in the philatelic history also in the history of passports. A person could live in the same house all his life and end up having five different types of passports.

      It changed a couple times, according to what I've read. They weren't clear on all of the changes, but I'll trust what you say. Thank you.
      The passports are interesting, but I never see them, so I have only my own. lol.
