Antique Tianjin Postcard: Boxer-Rebellion Field-Post Paoting-Fu

Antique Tianjin Postcard: Boxer-Rebellion Field-Post Paoting-Fu

Decorative old Tianjin (Tientsin) postcard with 5 small images. The postcard has been sent as field-post ( K.D. Feld-Poststation 1/3 No. 7 -
which was Paoting-fu ) to Munich.

No stamp was needed for field-post, for curiosity reason a 4 cents-coiling dragon stamp was added - party tied by the field post-cancellation. The Tientsin-strike was already on the stamp. Muenchen arrival-strike.

Fine condition.
