Deutsche Reichspost Postsparbuch
This Third Reich document lot consists of original Deutsche Reichspost savings account material. It is a red Postal Savings Bank (Account Pass) Book (Postsparbuch) and red card stock Postal Savings Bank Book Account Card (Postsparbuch Ausweiskarte) as well as deposit and withdrawal slips.
The account book and card had to be presented together by the account owner to make a deposit (Einzahlung) or withdrawal (Rückzahlung) from an account. Every book and card combination came with a supply of withdrawal slips bearing the same account number as the card and book. All transactions were entered in the pass book by date and amount, signed for by a postal clerk and stamped with the same date stamp that the post office used to cancel postage stamps on letters. A convenient aspect of the system was that one could get money from or pay money into an account in any post office in Germany.

The backside of the Ausweiskarte was blank and the last five pages of the Postsparbuch have rules and regulations for Deutsche Reichspost savings accounts.

This material is for account number 1,002.805 (all numbers in this lot match) and the name of the account holder from Koblenz was Lange. He made deposits and withdrawals between 11 February 1939 and 11 August 1944 in amounts ranging from 5 Reichsmarks to 80 Reichsmarks, in the cities of Koblenz, Speyer and Heidelberg.
This original red Third Reich Postsparbuch and matching Postsparbuch Ausweiskarte come with three loose deposit slips and ten remaining withdrawal slips. In used condition, exactly as shown.
