The German Bohemia Province
by Lubor Kunc
The German Bohemia Province (in German called Provinz Deutschböhmen) was located in part of Northern and Western Bohemia near the German borders. The most important places belonging to the Province were: Liberec (Reichenberg) , Ústí/Labem (Aussig) , Teplice (Teplitz-Schönau) , Duchcov (Dux) , Cheb (Eger) , Mariánské Lázne (Marienbad) , Karlovy Vary (Karlsbad) , Jablonec/Nisou (Gablonz a.d. Neisse) , Litomerice (Leitmeritz) , Most (Brüx) , Žatec (Saaz) . The existence of The German Bohemia Province lasted only 3 months from Oct. 27 to Dec. 27, 1918.

The ex-President died on September 14, 1937. Immediately after his death it was decided to issue stamps in his honour.

Looks like a Hungarian postmark. Cancels an Austrian PC surcharged for use in Bohemia. Covers are known with Hungarian and Czecho stamps in combination used from Hungarian P.O.'s. (I don't know much more than this. I'm new to this area of collecting!)

The post card is a beauty, but one must be careful. As far as I can tell, the card was used in the Czech-German part of the new country, not in the Slovakian part (which is consistent with what I wrote in Part 6 of my long essay about the overprinted cards).***   It does bear a Hungarian postmark, but that is a receiving strike, not an outbound strike. The outbound strike is largely illegible, but the pattern it has suggests that is a left-over bilingual German-Czech cancel. My take on this card is a bit more precise than the comment left by "AGZ" back in 2002.
Thank you.
