The former inner German border ran exactly through the two tribes of the two-country regions in the Ellricher city forest. The special stamp "Zweiländereiche" is one of three special stamps (next to Jungborn and Dreiländerstein) that must be hiked to acquire the "Harzer Grenzweg" themed hiking needle.
A sign on the two borders explains the different boundary stones:
KP = Kingdom of Prussia
HB = Duchy of Braunschweig (from 1816)
ST W = Stiftsamt Walkenried (after 1668)
GDR = boundary stone from 1968

Everything essential has already been written in this portal about the 2 national areas. It is worth knowing, and it should also be mentioned that the border at that time ran exactly between the trunks of the two oaks.
Due to the history, there is a special postmark of the Harzer hiking pin here.
