Poster for "Olympic Games" in Amsterdam, 1916

Berlin had been awarded the honor of hosting the 1916 Games, and preparations continued right into 1916, as no one expected WWI to continue, but eventually the Games had to be cancelled. Because they were cancelled, no official poster was issued, but the one above was created for national Games held in Amsterdam, and is often mistakenly advertised as the official poster for 1916.

The design of label 1916-2 below looks as though it *would* have been the official poster for the Berlin games.

The following poster stamps were issued for the scheduled Games:
