We occasionally see insured ('money' or 'valeur') letters from Luxembourg-Ville , but we very seldom find them from the smaller towns and villages. Thus, this example, posted from Grevenmacher, June 17, 1932, to St. Gallen, Switzerland, where it was received the next day, finds it way to this blog. The gaudy red wax seals of B. Wolf Cahen/Auguste Wolf Succ./Grevenmacher Luxembourg add to the cover's appeal.
