Never a card of honey dealer Hans Kogel and his branch name "Bienenfleiss"
is published in The Postal Bee. On these cards are nice pictures of
bees and honey, but they have no philatelic value.The reason we
present now a card of Hans Kogel is very funny. To help his
customers Hans Kogel ordered for printing a bee in a rectangle.
The bee shows the user of the card exactly where he has to fix the
stamp. Customer Hans Sprenger from Dortmund did not understand the
hint of the helpful bee. He thought it is a stamp. He fixed the
obligatory stamp "Berlin Notoffer" beside the bee and he
sent the card to Hans Kogel. The postman was not amused.
See the lilac rectangle on the
adress of Hans Kogel and the blue 11.
