When it comes to Hungarian passports and their history I belive Marco is the “source”. He is hungarian national and has a broad and deep knowledge on this topic. Currently you can find some of his doubles at eBay includig this extra rare type which was issued only for 2 year from 1948-49. According Marco passport rules after WWII were very strict and documents in circulation was rather low. In addition it was mandatory to return the passport after it was expired.
