Domestic COD Use of the 10c Adolphe (3rd issue) UPU Postal Card in 1906




Luxembourg-Ville IV,
11 Dec 1906 [3:00-4:00 p.m.],
11 Dec 1906 [7:00-8:00 p.m.]

Domestic postal card rate = 5c
Domestic registry fee = 20c
Domestic COD fee for 5.45 F = 10c


Thanks to Léon Masseler, who sent out annual dues notices as treasurer of the Société des Naturalistes Luxembourgeois, we have many interesting COD uses of the early 20th century postal stationery.  This example is especially nice because it’s from the scarce third issue Adolphe postal stationery, valid only from August 1906 to the end of 1908.

Somebody else also must have liked this card, as there is a tiny red vanity mark at the bottom right on the back!
