This extremely popular collecting area includes the stamp issues of the then Landespostdirektion Berlin, which were active in the 3 western sectors of the city and were subordinate to the former Deutsche Bundespost.

The issue of stamps for West Berlin was discontinued in September 1990. Their validity ended on December 31th 1991
