Description

Late pre-WWII Mandate airmail to Germany: 2 AUG 1939 postmarked air mail cover sent from TEL AVIV to BERLIN, franked 15m per period rate & tied by machine cancel; slit open at top. World War II broke out less than a month after this letter was posted. Of note, the cover is not marked by the 'cross' jusqu'a marking of BRINDISI, Imperial's transit point from which mail to Germany was normally transmitted by surface transport - possibly a precautionary measure to obfuscate mail routing prior to the approaching war.
