Translates as "Use the pneumatic mail".

Remaining note in Bochmann is a description of the design -- On the left and right of the first and third row a bar of short, thick hatching strokes.

Yours is O 17 / c. The "A" next to the listing denotes that the circular cancel is on the right of the slogan.

Here's the Pyritz listing:



Translates as "Weizacker (a name for the region) / Tree Blossom / Medieval Fortifications".

"Torturm" in the listing translates as "gate tower".

There's not a pictorial example in Bochmann, but here's one from elsewhere on the Internet.

The Reichelsheim cancel is a standard rectangular postmark of the period.



It was used in the late 1870s and early 1880s. I can't read the full date, but the year on yours is 1881.

Rod,

A little of both. Michel lists the color of this issue as "rotorange bis gelblichrot", or red-orange to yellowish red.

When they give a range like that, it generally means one of two things: (1) the color changes were due to variations in the ink over time which were so subtle as to make demarcating distinct color changes virtually impossible (as opposed to a dramatic change between print runs); or (2) the ink used was prone to fading, so all stamps were an identical color at the time of printing (thus warranting only 1 catalog number), but known to be subject to fading.

Excellent.
It seems I have the range, so I'll add them to the page with your description.
Once again, thank you.

Here is an oddity for TSF members interest.
With due appreciation to Mr. Ryan Davenport for discovering it, and I found a complete one in my collection.

East Germany Registration Label (Stamp?) 50 pfennig.

Seen at auction with a reserve of $80




Borek Katalogue 1970

May we have translation of the 2 types of paper, please?

Rod, the first one is thick white paper. I will edit if I find the second one!
Pergamin papier translates to different things. I saw parchment paper and also glassine! In one example it was used as in-between pages in a photo album

Thanks Peter,
I think that explains it.
Pergamin would then explain glassine in my context.

German Registration Labels come in 2 forms, paper and glassine,
the Glassine style were always from DDR East Germany, in my experience.
very light, translucent etc etc

Both Germanys were in red with lozenge type borders.

The Pergamin paper stands out in the middle of this page

Rod,

One small correction on your MiNr 2 C registered label. Your caption states it's MiNr 2 C 61-5, but it should be 65-1 (you have it correct earlier in the caption).

The one with a reserve of $80 is from a rare post office (61-5), with a high CV of 50. Unfortunately, the catalog value for your 65-1 is only 2 MNH.

Regardless, it's a nice piece.
