Description

White postcard with black printed postcard lines. Includes a red and black illustration of a skull and book with caption, "Ausstellung im Logenmuseum."

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: This postal card was issued to commemorate the two day September 17-18, 1938, anti-Masonic exhibition at Chemnitz. The special cancel, with Nazi dagger severing a masonic symbol, was also employed for the event. The anti-Masonic exhibitions were designed to visit all the major cities of Germany; however, only Chemnitz and Hannover appear to be recorded philatelically.
