1939 Postcard of Homecoming of German Condor Legion
LIMITED ITEM. SURPLUS - PREVIOUSLY OWNED. Once they are gone we may not get any more. Sold As Is - NON-REFUNDABLE.
Are you interested in WWII history, German History or Third Reich pictures, this is a great find for you. This picture postcard is in absolutely superb condition. This postcard was issued to commemorate the homecoming of the German Condor Legion which served with Francisco Franco's Nationalists during the Spanish Civil War of July 1936 to March 1939. There was also a special postmark (Inscribed "Geimkehr der Legion Condor" - 'Return of the Condor Legion').
Privately printed postcards without a double border and with no indicia stamp are known as "Propaganda Postcards". They required the addition of a valid stamp before they could be used and were generally issued to commemorate a political event. Great find for history buffs.

NOTE: Over the years we have collected items with historical interest. The majority of our memorabilia is war related and we do not wish to offend anyone. We do not support or condone war but believe that historical items can remind us of our history, teach us about specific moments in time and hopefully prevent us from reliving any manmade horrific times in history. Any items we offer are intended for collectors of memorabilia and hopefully will be used for educational purposes. All of our collectables come from our own private collection via many X-service personnel and government auctions and have included Nazi party, Holocaust, Allgemeine and Waffen SS, Luftwaffe, Kriegsmarine, Kamikaze, Japanese, Australian, U.S., British items, etc. We should not forget our past but should endeavor to learn from its mistakes. It is our hope we never forget those that have died as a result of war. May god protect them.
LIMITED ITEM: Limited Availability. ONCE THEY ARE GONE WE WILL NOT GET ANY MORE. Usually available for pickup in our store in Las Vegas, or would ship ASAP.
