The 6 pf. Hindenburg Reply Card Returned from Luxembourg-Ville during the WWII Occupation

 

003a

 

003

Luxembourg-Ville,
21 May 1940,
censored,
to Hannover, Germany

004

This reply card, postmarked just 11 days after the WWII German occupation, is an example of early resumption of post-occupation mail service. 

The sender dated it “17.5.40” in the space provided for the return address.  It shows the German censor’s red cachet and number “19” in a rectangle. 

This is the only use I’ve seen of the Hindenburg 6-pf reply card from the 6pf+6pf message-reply card returned to Germany from Luxembourg during the WWII occupation.
