Beautiful German Empire Passport Braunschweig 1915. Just got this beauty into my archive. The German Empire (1871-1918) existed of Kingdoms, Grand Duchies, Duchies, Principalities, Free and Hanseatic Cities and Imperial Territories. This passport is from the Duchy of Brunswick (Braunschweig) and is one of the rarer type a collector can find. It’s population was around 450.000 citizens in 1910. The Duchy of Brunswick State Railway was the first state railway in Germany established 1838.

Look at the passport. Fantastic condition for a 101 year old document. Beautiful handwriting, clear and crisp stamping, revenues, visa and a nice passport picture. That’s just all a collector wants when looking for collectibles. Issued to a 60 year old woman (pensioner) on Oct 20, 1915 and valid only for 6 month for traveling to Bavaria and Austria-Hungary (visa). This passport has the passport number 29 and as it was issued in Oct 1915 so we can assume that year not many documents have been issued.This travel document is one of the nicest and best conserved document I ever got for my archive. Happy to found it.
