Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: This is a provisional issue of German stamps overprinted with "Deutsche Post Osten" for use in the General Government, where overprinting was valid until September 30, 1940. The General Government was ruled by Hans Frank, and included Cracow, Lvov, Radom, Warsaw and Lublin districts. After war with Russia began in June 1941, the General Government became a province of the greater German Empire, which already included Danzig and northern and western areas of Poland.
