Postal Stationen/: covers and cards, issued between 1891 and 1898. Look for cards like for example 1898 "Deutsche Reichspost" C 154 with a Bockenheim stamp. On the stamp is printed a circle with a rubber stamp. That means the card is used outside the Bockenheim area. In the example it is 'Reichspost', but Frankfurt is also possible.
