Couvert Middelburg

Postby Euser » Tue Feb 05, 2019 8:55 am

By reading this forum I now know that this Couvert comes from Middelburg. The cover has only two markings, 1st the city sign with year letter, 2nd the master mark that I do not know, because I do not have the books. Would like to get help with this.

Thank you Euser
