Notice anything about this postcard?


I place this here hoping to generate some dialog about what, who, where, etc. An estimated value for this card is $150-$200.


:wow:

BY the way...$ 150/200? I think it's a little expensive price for it.

Average prices for Reutlinger's postcards is between $ 10 to 30, plus the stamp value. Has this stamp or the cancell something special?

As someone who knows next to nothing about postal history, I'm wondering why all the UPU text was crossed out. Is there a known reason, or did someone just not like the UPU?

Not the UPU was target of the crossing out, but the designation "postcard"...
This counts as a printed matter (less the 5 greeting words). Anyhow, not only that it is a local printed matter rate, the holiday special 1kop rate could probably also apply in catholic poland?

I think I have 3 or 4 holiday rate cards in my collection (easter and new years day) and 1 local wrapper with 1kop rate franking.

So my answer would be: Rare because of catholic christmas holiday rate, only applied in poland?

Printed matter is one thing. Internal post from/to within the same location sent like a business card or simple greeting for 1-kop. is not easy to find, but they do exist. The postcard here is of foreign origin. So what? There are many examples of this. There is no place to place any message, unless you write on the young lady on the front.

Well, the original question was about one card in particular. However, I join Arne in showing a few examples. If we want to show more, perhaps a new thread should be created?

I'll stay within Moscow.

Gary,

The first card was commonly called a bride's card. It was send to the prospective groom during the Christmas holidays as familys would determine marriage contracts. For some reason, it was the woman's picture sent more often than the man's. Remember men married for money while women married for prestige. Many times the contract was made without the bride or groom having never met.

I tend to believe this from the woman's style of pose, style of dress and the overall style of card.
