1944 Registered cover franked with Sc B250, B252B and B252C. Posted in Stuttgart, “The City of Germans Living Abroad”
Lot 1917
Registered cover franked with Sc B250, B252B and B252C.
Posted in Stuttgart, “The City of Germans Living Abroad” on 9 October 1944.
The total postal value of the stamps (42 Rpf) paid the registered mail rate. The additional surtax (38 Rpf) supposedly went to the National Culture Fund, but was more likely used to pay down the mounting debt created by the war effort.
The letter is addressed to:
Hans Atzberger, Dr. of Med. Physician and Obstetrician Besigheim, Wurttemberg.
Besigheim, a town of approximately 3800 in 1944, was “one of the most picturesque and unspoilt of Germany’s smaller towns.” At least before the war.
