MICHEL P162
(POSTCARD)

P162 is very similar to the 1924 design P156. The difference between the two postcards is that P162 has a thicker central dividing line consisting of three thick dark green lines separated by lighter green lines. P156 only has a single thin green line. In addition P162 is larger than P156, now measuring 148 x 105mm.

RÜBELAND
(16th Jul 1925)

This RPPC features the Blue Grotto caves in Rübeland (Harz), and was posted on 16th Jul 1925 from Rübeland to Stranraer, Scotland. The sender applied two 1924 Michel P356 Imperial eagle stamps, for a total of 10Rpf. Apparently this was insufficient to cover the cost of postage and the recipient had to pay 1½ pence extra to cover the deficit. There are two postage due stamps which indicates the extra payment was made.
