Enjoyed receiving this from a non-stamp collecting relative (so it was serendipity).

Postcard 1923 3 Dec. Krakow to Tarnow



The postcard is interesting from several angles.

Poland experienced inflation between 1921 & May 1925, although not on the same scale as Germany, nor were the changes as frequent. The Polish Post Office stopped printing pre-paid postal cards in 1922, instead, printing cards in the old format but without indica to which appropriate stamps were attached.

This card is an example of this with postage of 15,000 Marks applied, being the domestic postcard rate 1 Dec 1923 to 31 Dec 1923.

Poland had been divided between Austria, Prussia/Germany and Russia between 1795-1918. Krakow, being in the Austrian part, used Austrian stamps & cancellors were bi-lingual with 'Krakau' on top & Polish 'Krakow' on the bottom. Here is an unmodified example used in 1919 after Poland had gained her independence



This type of cancellor was modified by erasing the top German part leaving the Polish 'Krakow' on the bottom, & it is this type that is used on the infla postcard a full 5 years after independence.

By a coincidence I just won another postcard from this period, but to an international destination. They will nicely complement each other on the album page.

Renden, they are not just postmarks - they are Mailers marks I believe. Pictures are very small but I think the addressee cancelled this himself

Renden, These collectors like to cancel their own outgoing mail which gives one a more standardized postmark. Another plus is that the stamp does not get torn up in the mailstream like happens so often.

I have begun to accumulate a small collection of different Mailer's Postmark Permit cancels on cover. I have maybe 10 different numbers at this point. Most of the ones I have look more commercially applied rather than handstamped. #511 may be the highest number I have seen.

amccleaf1,

Does a mailer's handstamp (like # 511) belong to the mailer and what is the US cost for such a particular permit ?
Thanks
Rene

Received a nice strike of Bulwinkle's second town cancel on a greeting card. This office had been open 13 months and would operate another 11 years and 9 months before they change this fun town name to Crannell.
