Description

Very fine strike of the rare Meshek Ein Harod interim postmark tied to 3m interim frank on cover bearing the personal/address stamp of Werner Eichwald, the deputy postmaster of Petach Tikva. Philatelically inspired: it may have been sent through the postal system to Eichwald, similar to other such covers addressed to himself, or possibly a cancelled-to-order cover (not sent through the post) though the application of the personal/address stamp on the front seems unnecessary for this. The postage is for the printed matter rate: the cover is presently sealed though probably posted unsealed per printed matter regulations (and Eichwald himself knew the postal procedures).
