The album Danziger Wappenwerk was issued in 1930 and the author was probably Dr. Hubertus Schwarz.

Dr. Schwartz was senator for the city council of Danzig and was mentioned as author and designer. However, there are reasons to suspect that F. W. Burau is the real designer of the images.


The album contains 125 arms, and besides the arms of the city and towns, it also contains images of personal arms, Hausmarken (house-marks, or logos), the seals of the city of Danzig and flags. As the territory of Danzig was very small, these additions were necessary for a complete album. Several later additions were planned, and some space was left for these in the album, but these were never issued.

The arms were printed in 7 sheets of 18 stamps each. The last sheet contained also an advertising stamp for the company (see below).


Like some other albums, there is a text on the back of the stamps.
