Would some kind hearted soul with a Michel German specialized please share the catalog information on these German Grossraschen locals? The info would be greatly appreciated! My German specialized is a 1990 - Just “slightly” out of date.

My new profile pic is my Irish Captain Jack, the withdrawn issue, which was my best kiloware find ever!
THANK YOU! My catalog was so old that the prices were in Deutschmarks!
I didn’t realize that there were so many varieties ... it looks like I have mostly type ones and type twos for 13 - 22.
Boy, after the war they used whatever they could to make do, eh? The signature is the postmaster from what I’ve read.
FYI - these are available for trade.
IMHO - Michel is such a good catalog that when they finish releasing English versions of all of their catalogs the Philatelic world is going to party! LoL I do know a smattering of German and with my handy translation list that they provide I muddle through.
The booklet from Michel which provides a translation into English of their German-language terms and a guide to usage of their catalogues is available from the publisher online and can be freely downloaded. I've posted this elsewhere, I'm sure, but who knows where and in any case it's not such a bad thing to have the link posted again every now and then, as it's very useful for those who aren't able to speak German but who do have an interest in using their excellent catalogues.
I've spent several years trying to master the learning curve presented by the Michel volumes that are auf deutsche.
The booklet that Ryan linked to is an essential first choice, especially because it gives a layout of the catalog format.
Following that, I've been using Google Translate, which is often very helpful, although sometimes it can still leave me scratching my head: translate.google.com/ (There's also an Android app (and perhaps an iPhone one as well?).)
I just recently learned about this site, from the UK-based Austrian Philatelic Society. They have what looks to me like 2 very helpful pages, which I'm anxious to check out the next time I have to go 'deep Michel':
