Gutenberg      from post 23 on page 2 to post 56 on page 4

At that time I posted -  'That, as far as I am aware, is the last Gutenberg postage stamp (certainly the legitimate ones).'
I have found some more.

Before 1870 Germany consisted of several states, four kingdoms, six grand-duchies, five duchies, seven principalities, three free towns and one 'Reichsland'.
Many of them issued their own stamps. In 1870 Germany was united and only Bavaria and Wurttemberg continued issuing their own stamps.

1888 Gutenberg, inscription "Druckschriften Expedition Circulair Post zu Mainz"

  1 p blue
  3 p red
  5 p brown
  1 M brown
  5 M silver
  20 M gold











I can find no image of the 20M

They were later surcharged, but I have only found three.

  '2' on 1 M brown
  '3' on 3 p red
  '3' on 5 p brown
