A Swiss philatelist came to New York to present his collection at the Collector’s Club few years ago. This was one of his collectibles. I asked for a copy and he’s kind enough to send me a copy, two years later. One of the opening lines he used was to be a philatelist, you have to know/love history.


The above left is the other side of the top pix on the Lothar Futter site. The right one is from Humorous postcards of China – more in gallery too.
