Mozambique to Germany
November 12, 1937

This neat commercial cover received two hexagonal datestamps from Lourenšo Marques.
The destination was Duisburg-Ruhrort which is in Duisburg
north of the Ruhr river at its junction with the Rhine.

The stamps are from the 1933 series "Portugal" holding volume of the "Lusiads."
I believe the denominations are 5c black brown, 70c orange brown,
and 50c dark brown (2x) (Scott 252, 261, 259).
