A scarce Mondorf postal viewcard -- sole use of the 40c/90c surcharge!


Prifix 94 --- LHBK 96
1930
40c/90c
Nine Mondorf Views 

When the 40c/90c surcharged Mondorf viewcards appeared sometime in 1930, the 40c postal card rate to France and Germany had already ended on December 15, 1927.  Thus, sole uses of the 40c/90c card are only possible domestically (from 1 Jul 1930 to 1 Feb 1935) and to Belgium (from 1 Dec 1929 to 1 Feb 1935).  In 50 years of collecting, I have only acquired two sole uses -- that's one every 25 years on the average!  How many do you have?
