A letter carrier from Germany
I've just recently received this card which shows a German charity stamp from 1989. A charity stamp is a postage stamp which is sold above the normal rate, with the extra funds going to charity. In this case the normal rate was 60 with a surcharge of 30, and the funds went towards the Federal Association of voluntary welfare in Germany.
The card itself is an illustration of a letter carrier from the 1500s.
