The 1927 Postal Viewcards

 

Issued on April 15, 1927, Luxembourg’s first postal viewcards have not been much studied.  Thus, their nine Mondorf-les-Bains views provide a fertile field for philatelic research.   

Consider, for example, the 30c fountain view.  I’ve found three variations in the spacing between the stamp imprint and the four adjacent lines of text:

001a

 No space between the stamp imprint and text.

 

001b

1 mm. of space between the stamp imprint and text. 

 

001c


4 mm. of space between the stamp imprint and text (normal?) 

 

001

 

Check your postal stationery collection.  Help me identify more of the varieties on these distinctive postal viewcards!
