    Any assistance to help identify the marking in lower left side of this postcard ? Is it a censors mark? It almost looks like a time stamp but I cant identify...small "T" with .13. behind it? Second line looks like 30 10, 3rd line "6-7*." (* being unknown) 1906 DE3.jpg with 4th line "b." 1906 DE.jpg

    Hi Rick 2,
    No, it has nothing to do with a censor mark. When Germany became a country in 1871 only 53% of the population was being served by a post office. There was an attempt for universal mail service with the creation of Posthilfstellen, or private contract offices usually in smaller villages and towns. I can't say for certain, as I am not an expert, but perhaps that is a marking of such a contract office.

    If the date on the postmark should be 29.1.06,than it could be
    a private cancel for incomming mail.
    Dated O1 02 (Feb.first),6-7 V(ormittags = a.m.).
    Just a guess !
