Cancel on the franking appears to be from a Mail Car as well. Is it possible that it was mailed from the train?

I wonder how long it would take me to find that again? I rarely sell anything, so it is around here, somewhere...

Hello, Thank you for the postmark information! I am particularly interested in this postcard because of the word that is written in Cyrillic cursive underneath the postmarks on the bottom left. It matches a notation I found on a family document of a friend. The text on the document is a combination of Cyrillic typeface and handwritten cursive... and it uses this same word, followed by a date of 8 May 1950 and something similar to Kis (which cannot be correct as typed because that does not fit anything in Cyrillic cursive). I am attempting to translate and am hoping the postmarks here can help me pinpoint a specific location for more of her family records. Here is a scan of the notation from the document. Any ideas? Thank you for any help you can provide.

Hi eveybl,

I believe the words at the bottom of the postcard are the Russian version of "in Danzig", so something like "v Danzige" but in Cyrillic.

I'm not convinced that your word is the same but you may be right.

hello eyeybl.

I think it is possible that you should look at the 8./5, and the 50 kis seperately. 8/5 beeing part of a date and the 50 kis being something completely different.
