Postcard from Bern to Zürich.
Ordinarily not significant, but this is cancelled using the second hammer canceller sent by German manufacturer for testing by Swiss Post. It was actually competing against the deCoppet devices, but too late and showed no significant advantage over the existing Swiss cancellers.

From Veltheim via Winterthur to Zürich [razor receiver].
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.
