Sender posted card at printed matter rate that had too many words on reverse. Thus, short paid requiring 3 centimes due. Notation "sender unknown" meant the card could not be returned to the sender for additional postage, therefore, additional postage to be collected from recipient. 3 centimes stamp signed by carrier.

8 July 1918

Postcard from Champery to Richelieu, France, stamp on the picture side.
The canceler came from the group of devices made by Güller in late 1903 to determine if deCoppet's flexible-head design could be mass produced. The answer was, Yes. Cancelers from this group were used for many years and in this case survived long enough to be modified post-WWI with the removal of the thick hatchures which were replaced with the Swiss Cross and postal district number (II).
