20403 Sassone Sassone imagePicture postcard franked by "War Propaganda" 30c type I, tied by "Lussimpiccolo/Pola" cds, a very fine and rare usage of this issue correctly paying the required rate. Note: Some inhabitants from Zara, who had left the city as a result of the bombardments, searched for refuge in neighbouring areas in the Adriatic Coast such as Lussimpiccolo (in modern day Mali Losinj, Croatia), carrying with themselves stamps or stationery cards from Zara in valid lire/centesimi currency; the date in the cds of this item is illegible as usually found in the very few items extant dispatched at Lussimpiccolo.(Image 1) (Image 2)

20404 Sassone Sassone image1943 (Dec 15) Cover from Zara to Auronzo (Italy), bearing first issue 30c vertical pair (slight peripheral tone spots), tied by "Zara/Arrivi e Partenze" cds, repeated alongside, with German "Ueberprueft" censorship's straight line (occasionally and rarely applied on Zara's envelopes -not postcards- during the occupation) and accompanying "19" censor's mark, backstamped on arrival on 27.2; the single rate was overpaid by 10c, probably due to a lack of availability of the required value/s. An extremely rare usage as a result of the following features: the scarce censorship handstamp, the most unusual 60c franking on non-philatelically inspired correspondence, and of even more importance, a mail dispatched on the last day of service of the Zara post office -just three travelled items recorded-, as the P.O. building was already bombarded on 28 November, and it was again hit by the bombs one day after this mail was sent, on 16 December.(Image 1) (Image 2)
