800 Years of the City of Leipzig
In 1965 Germany (back then, Deutsche Demokratische Republik - East Germany side) issued a set of stamps to commemorate the 800 Anniversary of the city of Leipzig.
Leipzig's name is derived from the Slavic word Lipsk, which means "settlement where the linden trees (US; lime trees in UK) stand" - Wikipedia information.
I'm showing you today one very interesting postcard... at least I think so... will let you judge for yourself... ok?
On the front it has the old cities' view and on the back it has the stamps in full set with the 1st day cancellation... how often do you see this kind of circulated maxicard? Yes, I know it's not a maxicard since the stamps are on the back and there shoudn't be more than on per postcard... but you understood the idea, didn't you? How often do you see ones like this?
Just to publicly thank Georine for her steady contributions to the blog!
