Welcome to Rainer's
Overland Mail Baghdad-Haifa Pages

Where are these item?


In my archive i have several paper clippings or images of items offered in the past either at conventional auctions, online auctions or items shown long time ago in philatelic publications. For philatelic studies it would be helpful to have high quality images s it would be necessary to know the whereabouts / current owner of these items. If you have any information, just send me an Email.

I like to start here...,lets see how successful my search will be, newly added items are on TOP of the table.
