Provisional Certificate Of German Nationality Used As Travel Document

Well, I do collect for quite some years but when US fellow collector Tom Richards sent me the pictures of this document I was really surprised. I was not aware that a Certificate of Nationality can be used as a travel document. I believe this is a unique circumstance. What makes the document even more special is the fact that it bears not less than ten (10) Allied Military Government (AMG) visas including revenues! I had recently a Swiss passport with six (6) AMG visas / revenues which was given to a passionate collector for a quite reasonable price.
