Here's a postcard from my collection, promoting the artificial international language Ido ("The Modern World Language"), but written in German rather than Ido. It was franked with Michel #317 (Scott #110), postmarked in Großbothen on 26 June 1953, and sent to Bad-Klosterlaus[n]itz.

1947-1948 Allied Occupation. The two stamps (Mi. #941-42, Sc. #B296-97) were issued on March 5, 1947 to publicize and fund the 1947 Leipzig Spring Fair (a semi-annual export exhibition that dates back to Medieval times). These stamps were beautifully engraved on white paper with a diagonal zigzag lines watermark. The two designs feature Leipzig Proclaimed a Market Place in 1160 and foreign merchants displaying their wares in 1268.

Here is an oversize cover sent registered to Austria, franked with part set issued to mark the 50th anniversary of October revolution and with SS with two stamps of the set issued to publicize the stamp exhibition held to mark this anniversary event. It apllied with commemorative postmark:

The cover was probably sent from the post office operated in the exhibition hall as the registration label indicates:

The back of the covers contains three labels publicizing the exhibition and the anniversary event:
