Hi George - I assume you have tried Paul Tremaine. His contact address is in each TELL. He's the Appointed Officer for all things Liechtenstein. Maybe he can point you in the right direction.

The attached image shows an imperforate example of Liechtenstein Scott 122 (Zumstein 111) issued 9.XII.1935. The only mention of this I have found so far is on page 758 of the 1978 Zumstein spezialkatalog, where it is mentioned that 7 stamps from this series are also known imperforate. Does anyone out there know of additional information about this? I appreciate any help!

19 November 1909

Registered international postcard from Geneve Rue Du Stand to Vienna, Austria.
10 centimes postage plus 25 centimes registration.

From a previous post of this card -
"Here's a reason one should always research the people involved in a correspondence. I bought this card because one rarely sees a registered post card, let alone one with a razor cancel! This means the card was most likely processed at a clerks counter in the Rue Du Stand PO lobby due to the registration process!

The addressee, Stephan von Máday (1879-1959) was the author of the book -"Psychology of the horse and dressage", which is still available on Amazon and at other book sellers. His influence was international both in dressage and for military reasons. Psychology of horses was important. One must remember at this time horses were the primary means of transportation for world armies. 8 million horses died in WWI in Europe alone!

Máday was also connected with the Lipizzaner school in Vienna. He was 30 years old when he received this card, and he had just published his book.

Card reads - "I read with great interest the article on horse psychology, which you sent me and I thank you very much.""
