526   imageFrance, Rixheim Postal History Exhibition Collection, 1809-89. A thoroughly annotated single-frame (16-page) presentation showing the postal upheavals of 19th-century Franco-German enmity.

Rixheim, a small town in the Haut-Rhin Département of Upper Alsace, changed hands between France and Germany five times between 1870 and 1945, resulting in as many changes of postal administrations, issues and markings. This collection focuses on the 1800s, with 40 covers or cards. The story begins with two pre-philatelic covers (dated 1809 and 1833), with stampless covers continuing even after the issuance of France's first stamps (the Haut-Rhin not being provisioned until the early 1850s). Napoléons follow until 1871 with the use of German Occupation stamps, which continues until February 1872. At this point we find, thanks to neither country recognizing the other's postal authority, double-franked (French double affranchissement) covers until the Germans renounced this agreement in May, when solely German frankings were used.

Four French cancels were used for the town during this period, each of which is included here: Type 15 1) without stamps, 2) with small numeral "2685", 3) with large numeral "3154", and 4) Type 16 plus "3154". Special interest material is found throughout, with money letters, turned covers, rural commune box, foreign destinations, a parcel card, a third weight-band letter, Registered, Due, and more.

Rounding out the collection is a fascinating cover from Ecuador using Rixheim's "3154" canceller—one of 25-30 such covers known.

Two Occupation covers accompanied by 2016 Roumet, Schiff & Pagnoux certificates.

A fascinating look at what small-town post offices can offer the postal historian.

532   imageFrance, French Railway Transfer Office Exhibit, 1864-82. 16 pages dedicated to the French railroads and their conveyance of la poste. Created in 1864 as station sorting and forwarding facilities for mail not carried in closed sacks, the system grew to 23 offices, mainly at junctions of two or more rail lines, and all on at least one trunk line. These bureaux de passe fell into disuse from the mid-1870s and were done away with entirely in mid-December of 1882.

Each of the 23 offices operating during this relatively short time period is represented here. The markings took the form of eccentric double-circle markings using the station town's alphanumeric identifier. Three distinct types were used, differing in the size and font used for the numeral (illustrated on the title page).

As transit markings, these most commonly were struck on the back of the cover. Accordingly, most of the covers here are shown recto-verso, though several have the transits struck face-side (there are also two stamps, off cover, showing near complete strikes of the markings). And while nearly all covers reached their destination passing through just one of these transfer offices, the collector was able to find one example each of a two-transit and three-transit cover.

Come aboard for this Napoléon- and Cérès-filled journey on the rails.
