A visit at the flea market in Burgdorf / Switzerland

12 November, 2011

I visited a German fellow at this market and I was glad to do so. The market itself was in a big hall mostly with antiques, art, military stuff, coins and postcards. Only a few sellers had some Ephemera. One lady told me she has some Swiss passport and I should contact her – for sure I will. At another table I found the Swiss passport as shown in the gallery. I have already a lot of Swiss passports in my collection but this type I saw the very first time.

This type has only 14 pages and was issued 1899. It’s probably the very first version of the booklet form. Enjoy the gallery…
