    __________________
    Hello all, the mirror stamp image was almost certainly an ink transfer from the previous sheet during the printing process, before the embossing and folding of the envelope. My guess is that it shows no sign of embossing itself?
    It is not too rare to see ghost images like this, but it is a nice clear example.
    Regards, James.

    Hallo James,
    in German philatelic terms a ghost image is called "Abklatsch".
    Here an example from the 1850 issue of Austria: (front)
    A1.jpg

    And the back of the same stamp:
    A2.jpg
    (The black marks are expertising marks.)

    The Württemberg envelope is different.The "ghost image" cannot
    be an ink-transfere,as the embossing on the back is as prominent
    as on the front-side.
    Unfortunately I have not a second envelope for comparison,but
    my best guess is,that mine is not a missprint.
    I have no knowledge how such envelopes were produced.Again I
    can guess only: I think they were printed on square paper and
    were cut to size later,than folded and glued.
    That would not explain the mirrow image print,I know !

    Regards

    Werner

    Hello Werner, In your 1850 Austrian issue it would possibly be called "halbtrockener Abklatsch" a bleedthrough image on the back of the stamp itself, because of this the backside of the stamp shows the debossed (hollow) side of the image, as against the embossed (raised face) side.
    Envelopes were usually diecut and folded after the printing / embossing stage.
    In comparison your Württemberg example the imprint was not on the back-face but on the flap, therefore the image was transferred after the initial folding of the envelope and before the top flap (closure) was gummed and folded because there is no sign of ink transfer on the top flap.
    Below is a typical diecut unfolded envelope.

    Hallo James,
    you are probably right about the "halbtrockener Abklatsch".
    But I am not really sure about debossed and embossed images.
    Unlike engraved stamps,flat-printed stamps,like the 1850-issue
    from Austria show no visible embossing,or do they ?
    I tried to find out wether my Abklatsch is a bleeding through.
    But came to no certain result.Both images seem to be exactly
    in the same position,what would be the case by bleeding through.
    But this could also be the case,if both involved paper-sheets were
    exactly printed in the same position.
    However not at every point strong coloured details from the
    front-side,appear also strong on the back,as I would expect.
    But then the paper of the stamp is handmade.So its texture
    might not be uniform.That would explain,that the colour did
    not bleed through the same in all parts.

    The Württemberg envelope is a tough nut to crack.
    Probably it is the constant heat of this summer,what is melting
    my brain.I have big difficulties to (mentally) unfold that envelope.
    But if I got it right,the "back-side" print would be to the right of
    the front-side stamp.But it is an mirror-image and the embossing
    is reversed.
    Or put it the other way around,it is an albino print applied on the backside,while the back of the albino print,as it appears on the front-side,is coloured.
    Sounds a little confused and I have no idea how and why it was
    printed in that way.
    But perhaps 35° C,day after day...
    Regards,
    Werner
