Less Common "Paris Mystery" Marking

Postby dmui » Sun Jun 23, 2019 7:14 pm

Charles LaBlonde and Tony Brooks have written pieces on these markings. Charles reported on, but did not show a cover that was censored in Munich instead of the most frequently encountered routing of covers with these markings through the Paris censorship office.

Hope this topic is of interest to some readers. Comments are always welcome.
