BelgiumEdit

The first meter appeared in 1925. All stamps are inscribed with the country name in two languages, usually in French (BELGIQUE) and Dutch (BELGIE) but a few are known with German (BELGIEN). The order of the country names in the franks alternates with "BELGIE-BELGIQUE" used mostly in Flanders and "BELGIQUE-BELGIE" used mostly in Wallonia. Those with "BELGIEN" are probably used in the East near the border with Germany.
Between 1978 and the switch to the Euro in 1999 all meter franks were required to include "F" or Fr" (for franc) next to the value figures.
Stamps without date/town mark are used on pre-paid business reply mail.


The stamps are grouped according to appearance and function as follows:
A - Small, horizontal octagon
B - Small, upright rectangle with simulated perforation border
C - Large crown at top, standing lions in lower corners
D - Crown at top and curtains at sides
E - Country names in wavy panel at top
F - Horizontal frank without outer frame. Large lion rampant in center
G - Simple rectangle with inner rectangle around value figures. Post horn at bottom
H - Wide crown in field of horizontal lines at top
I - Abstracted post horns defining top frame line, without crown
J - Lions rampant indented at top left and right
K - Country names vertical and horizontal starting with common “B” in upper left corner. Euro sign at right
PO - Designs used in Post Offices only
PD - Designs used for Postage Due only
PP - Designs used for Railway Parcel Post only
