Here's one I've always wondered about. When was it used, by whom and for what purpose etc.

Thanks laswabbie for sharing the research. I have to say that is more interesting than I thought it might be. You know, it's times like this that make collecting little goofy pieces of paper so much fun.

Anyone want to take a stab at identifying which type it might be?
I'm thinking IV maybe?

Its not easy for me to figure-out what I'm looking at here.

Sure, the Cinderella is a NOCPLA Type I, but:

My first thought was that the cards traveled under cover - if they traveled at all - hence the lack of postage or postmark.

But, then, why did the sender - perhaps Mr Serkal (a/k/a Szerkal) himself - bother to hand-write his change-of-address, as if the card were forwarded by the post office?

A wise man once said: Never ask how they got that way ;)

Cheers,
