Germany Learns to live with the Versailles Treaty:

*- Auxiliary markings were issued in association
with the normal c.d.s. of the town.

If no special acceptance canceller was provided, some offices used auxiliary markings (Hinweisstempel) as recognition markings for air mail items. A temporary 2-line recognition marking was introduced at Gelsenkirchen on 16 April, 1919, the day following the opening of the DLR's Berlin - Hannover - Gelsenkirchen service, with the 'C' substituted in error for the 'G' of Gelsenkirchen.
Rates were:
Letters up to and incluiding 20 grams - - - 1.00 mark
Letters of 20 - 250 grams - - - - - 1.50 marks.
Newspapers were charged special contract rates, negotiated with the publishers.
Mail could be handed in at the Head C. 2 Office for cancellation . . .
