A new 50-pfenning stamp, containing a drawing of a tree so drawn as to portray a face remarkably like that of Hitler, was enjoying a brisk sale today in West Germany.
The debt-ridden Federal Post office was understood to be delighted at the heavy sales. It issued a statement today emphasizing that the artist, Otto Rohse, 39, of Hamburg, had not intentionally drawn a face. The Post office also said the stamp would not be withdrawn. The stamp depicts a castle tower and beside it a tree. Some of the branches form the shape of the face resembling AH.
