Reichsparteitag 1939. Postcard Proof Sheet. 1). Proof sheet. The postcards produced for the September 1939 the Reichsparteitag never went into circulation but there are examples available on the collecting market. The most common is the official card depicting the party congress badge. These cards were found in the back of a print shop after the war, they consist of 15 cards printed for proofing purposes, and this would have been for colour correction or typographical changes. The sheet is made up from three layers of card on the rear of the three sheet is a landscape print of an oil painting by an obscure artist (this may warrant some research at a later date). There is water damage to the right hand side which affect all 4 cards (please see pictures) there is also minor wear to the edges and some minor creasing. I have been informed that this is 1 of 16 which were found after the war, there have been 2 known examples auctioned in 2010 which had similar landscape print on the rear.
