Mackay  suggests that these stamps, arising from disputes between Prussia and Austria over Holstein and Schleswig in 1864 that led to the Seven Weeks’ War in 1866 were the first ever Occupation Issues. Stamps were issued by the German Federal Commissioners for Holstein 1864 and then by Austria. Joint stamps were at first issued for Schleswig, and Prussian stamps from 1865.
