"PRIVATE STAMP"

Beitragvon TALLTREES » 20. Okt 2013, 11:07

Hello. Could any member please help me with this Postcard :?: . I know that it has no connection with any Zeppelin flight but why does it appear to have this Purple private "GRAF ZEPPELIN" stamp on :?, i have seen this Purple stamp many times before ( but without a date on) mainly on Postcards bought at Zeppelin factorys/bases etc. The date on this private Zeppelin Purple stamp (26.JUL.30) is the same as when this Postcard was sent (26.7.30), so it was stamped on the same day as sending, the Postmark also reads the same date with a "KOBLENZ - 26.7.30" cancel, so i assume that it was sent from "KOBLENZ", there is some text on the back of the Postcard which i think is about a journey from "BINGEN" TO KOBLENZ", can any member please help.
Thank you.

Hello TALLTREES,
there is no connection at all in the text of this postcard to the airship "Graf Zeppelin". "Herrmann" and his friends made a boat-trip on the river Rhein from Bingen to Coblenz. My assumption: the name of the Rhein-steamer was "Graf Zeppelin" and the postcard was bought onboard.
Best greetings
Alfred
