I live in Istanbul and collect Embossed Coin Postcards exclusively belonging to Ottoman (Turkey) & Egypt only. Attached please find
the scanned picture of a card “ Big game” printed/published by Brüder Kohn, Vienna. It has also been used postally and sent from
Alexandria, Egypt to Basel, Switzerland on 26.12.1909.
Two weeks ago at an auction in Istanbul I saw this card, attracted my attention and purchased. Because it had “embossed picture of an
old Ottoman coin”, it was almost in line with my collection subject.
I would like to learn if any other postcards issued by B.K.W.I which also had similar “embossed coin figures” on them like the one
here. Most likely someone amongst your subscribers may provide me more info about these “embossed coin“ BKWI cards.
Thanks! Interesting item. Can anyone help? And could one of our German-speaking readers translate the card's text for us? What is the
writer saying? It was posted on December 26, 1909. Click on the image to see a larger version in our Flickr archive. -Editor
