LUXEMBOURG

On 15 September 1852, Luxembourg issued its first two stamps: a 10 centimes in Belgian currency and a 1 Silver Groschen in Prussian currency. Later stamps were issued only in Belgian currency. The first stamps depicted William III, son of King William II of the Netherlands. The watermark - a "W" - was a clear reference to the Grand Duke. When he died in 1890, the links with Holland were severed. Adolphe of Nassau became Grand Duke of Luxembourg. Stamps depicting the new ruler designed by Michel Engels were issued in 1891. His successor, William IV was depicted on stamps issued in 1906.
