This post card is one of a series printed by Ottmar Zierher of Munich, Germany, during the early years of the 20th century. A series of postage stamps from various countries was printed on the reverse. They were very colorful and eye-catchers, especially for stamp collectors. This card has the U.S. 1902-1903 definitive series, plus the 10c 1902 special delivery stamp printed on its reverse. The series has been reprinted and I don't know if this card is a reprint or one of the originals. While the postmark is not clear, it appears to have been in Berlin on August 30, 1935
Werner, do you have any knowledge of these cards? Is this an original or a reprint? Can you translate the message on the reverse?
