  • As erron says the cancel Mannheim is genuine and contemporary. Bisecting of inflation stamps was not permitted, though along with many other things that should not be, this one has slipped through.


    Don't consign it to the bin, that woould be a great shame if you were to do so, keep it as example of someone playing games with the post office, that escaped their attention.

    P.S. The violet stempel seems to be the path the railway should make because of french occupation of offenburg?

    Ich habe ja von Infla keine Ahnung. Aber interessehalber mal die Frage
    Wäre 400-Tausend das richtige Porto?

    Suche Kaiserreich Russland - insbesondere Punkt-Nummernstempel.

  • Hello...What do you think about this? Echt or falsch?.... Also could the rate be 1 Millon excedeed (15 + 7.5 + 5 )(19-10-23)

    They were probably missed the first time around, and later somebody noticed, grabbed the next available writing implement which happened to be an aniline pencil, and scribbled them out. Not exactly a rare occurrence.


    In other cases, in particular when a large number of stamps was used, the date stamp was only struck once or a few times, and most stamps were cancelled with pen or brush strikes, parcel cancels, bottle stoppers, or whatever else was at hand, possibly because they did not want to wear out the date cancel too quickly.


    I cannot comment on the amount of postage, however.


    The violet cachet on the back of the cover looks like an advertisement or invitation to travel to the Black Forest by direct train from some major cities. Well, I guess if you still had some gold left, or if you had some dollars or pounds or francs, it was a good idea ... with only marks in your pocket, it probably was not.

    [Blockierte Grafik: ]


    As far as I know, Berlin Rate are 700 Tsd for covers up to 700 Tsd, inland, and 850 for covers ausland.... No rate for 100 gr covers (Only in munchen). Then why this one has an 800 Tsd rate??


    And other one:

    The rate for international postkartes are 120 TSD, I can't understand then why this one are charged with 135 Tsd.


    Finally, one of my last aquisistions:

  • Digging on Philaseiten I just discovered that it was a "Late delivery" rate. (in the next PP that rate was 10 Mld ). Since this letter was delivered on sunday, the next PP the rates was increased x10 and the unknown rate was 1 Mld. I wondered if its possible that a "late delivery" was applied for sending on sunday.


    Anyway if someone has information about this extra rate and would like to share I would really appreciate it.


    Best regards
