"Insufficient postage" in German and Slav

I’m writing a “Ruritanian” serial fic, set in several imaginary small East European states in the 1890s.

Somebody has sent a letter without enough stamps, and the post office have stomped a big black rubber stamp across it saying the local equivalent of “Insufficient postage: X crowns to pay”. Can anybody tell me how to write that in (a) German and (b) Slovak, Ruthenian, Ukrainian, or any other language from that corner of the Slav-speaking world?
