Commercial card from Augsburg, OPD München - Mettmann franked initially with pair of Mi 331b dated 17.11.23. This was enough to meet the printed matter rate only. The request for C.O.D. 75 Milliarden and 50 Million Marks fee should have been paid by the sender. This fact was missed by the post office and the shortfall noticed by the sorting office. Card was then returned to sender who then had to pay the missing 5 Milliarden Marks. This was paid and a franking of five Michel 325 P applied. These are dated 19.11.23.
