Germany joined in the colonization effort later than most European nations, but they still established several colonies in Africa and in the Pacific Ocean. The most notable of the colonial issues was the “Kaiser” yacht issues in the late 19th century and early 20th century. Among the German colony stamps are also the German Democratic Republic or DDR and the issues of Berlin.
Within the lists of German related countries you will find Togo, Samoa and the Marshall Islands. In most cases, German stamps were limited to issues up through World War I, after which Germany lost most of their influence in these countries. Many Americans have German ancestors, so German stamps and German related issues are highly collectible worldwide.
