    Summer-Greetings-Card with a private text.
    Summer-greeting-cards were issued in Japan from 1950 onwards.
    The Ryukyus followed later.The cards all have an illustration
    on the back side,shown in the following post.

    My only postcard of Sweden:
    A1.jpg
    used in 1981
    The text says,that the card is postpaid for the whole world by
    surface mail.For airmail delivery outside of Europe extra postage
    has to be added.

    This one is a postal stationery and is not.It is a curiosity. A2.jpg
    I received it from Sweden in 1970.
    If you have a close look to it,you will see,that all printed inscriptions
    are in German and not Swedish.
    The reason why is very simple:
    the sender used a postcard from Germany and put stamps from
    Sweden to pay the postage.

    The original postcard was issued in 1941 and has an imprinted
    6 Pfg. - stamp with the portrait of Adolf Hitler !
    A3.jpg
    Here you can see the enlarged section of the postcard,where the
    swedish stamps covers the original Hitler-stamp nearly completely,
    but still not invisible.

    Interesting usage. The block of four stamps and lack of message on the left leads me to believe the was a philatelic item. An example of a new issue, perhaps.

    No,it was a commercial use.The message,as it is normal,is on the
    backside.But it was a stamp-collector,who did send me the card.
    I do not own a 6 Pfg.-postcard,but only the 5 Pfg. of the same
    series,what is identical apart from the colour and postage-value.
