RETOUR --- DANZIG HINDENBURG COVER RETURNED DUE TO REGISTRY LABEL

The registry label, No. 00778,was applied at the Danzig-Langfuhrl post office, and the cover was expected to complete the Olympic Round Flight of 1936.Instead, it managed to reach the Berlin-Zentralfiughafen on 1. .8.36, where it was backstamped and the registry was discovered. The post office at Frankfurt-Main officially stamped the cover with a boxed handstamp reading: (cinctjrcibci. nuuIñui. (Registered letter not allowed). The two backstamps are shown at the right.
