DB or BW?


Are you sure the DB postmark is not a BW instead?
DB was not used in the Warsaw railway post office, but on train post offices on the route Warsaw-Bydgosc. A letter sent from Warsaw should normally bear the BW cancel, while a letter picked up by the train and worked on ambulant postal offices should bear the DB, in one of its shapes, like the DW (on a different path in this case).
