Three-village routings in 1893, 1896, 1897 & 1898

 

Common Luxembourg domestic postal stationery can be a fertile source not only of cancels but also of routes.

Mostly we find:

Luxembourg-Gare to Luxembourg-Ville

Luxembourg-Ville or Gare Village

Village Luxembourg-Ville or Gare

Village Luxembourg-Ville or Gare Village

Village Village

Local Use

But here is something different—three-village routings without a Luxembourg-Ville or Luxembourg-Gare transit mark:
