Israeli army military postmarks / 1952 Weizmann: 15-2-1953 cover from Foreign Ministry at the KIRYA to the Placement Office of the Intelligence Corps, franked 30pr per DO-3a period inland letter rate, using 1952 Weizmann frank Ba-76 tied by TEL AVIV machine slogan cancel; cover tied by 7 II 1953 large violet "Postal Office of the Army" handstamp (mis-aligned dateline, probably supposed to be dated the 17th) & 17-2-1953 double-ringed "Communications Center | 1093(?)" arrival postmark - all unlisted in Harris (including PO identification) - and backstamped 17-2-53 TEL AVIV-YAFO 80 arrival; torn open at right, piece missing. Oddly, as Government-originating mail not requiring special service like registration, this cover should have been eligible for free/stampless 'official mail' service - but the cover was not marked such, so handled as regular inland civilian mail (official mail by regular mail resumed being free from July 1952).
