Comment

This is the only known example of this certificate with a printed infill, which could have been done with Stöver’s typeface. The lower part of the large heart is decorated with 15 individual stamps used in the border of the heart. Some small variations in the usual text appear, most notably the deletion of wer in “Und [wer] weiß” and the die and addition of sind in “uns sind [die] letzte Stimme..."

Condition

Good
