[ After reading the biographical data, in Polish, and with some difficulty with the Google Translator, I opened my  post about Ferdinand Schirnbock, and the data is consistent... he was still alive in 1929 (actually, he died in 1930), and another important fact is that Schirnbock engraved one stamp in 1928 for Poland and designed another in 1930 (I can conclude that some kind of Joint work with the Polish State Printer was taking place...) .. ]
