This cover had a rough life. Sent from Paris in 1936, it ended up in New York, was lost during forwarding, was re-registered (I've never even heard of that!), and finally made it to Coral Gables, Florida. The next-to-final insult was the 15¢ postage due. The final indignity, inflicted by yours truly 81 years later, is that my scanning software cuts off at 8½" and didn't quite get the whole thing.
(If you want to read the fine print, so to speak, clicking on the image should enlarge it.)

Here's one of the more presentable German inflation covers I have on the premises.
Even several pretty nice Magdeburg CDS's, too. I found a mention of the recipient - or a predecessor company - in an 1894 engineering book on Google. Prag-Karolinenthal is a district in (or suburb of) Prague.

This cover has seen better days (well, considering the conditions in which it came to life, maybe it hasn't), but I thought it was well worth a post. It's a registered letter from Düsseldorf to Deutsche Bank, Berlin, postmarked November 24, 1923.
