Hard to read some bits, but if I see correctly, it was sent from Saarburg (Westmark) to Frau Berthold in Sankt Avold (Westmark).
So all within Lotharingen / Lorraine and no Feldpost was used.
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

Can´t make out the text in the left upper corner which Filibustero didn´t share with us (except Saarburg).
But the addressee reads:
" An Frau Berthold
den Herrn Herrn Landrat
....
in Calid (?, unsure)"
=
" To Mrs. Berthold
too District Administrator
....
in Calid"

At this time there was only a substitute district administrator, Dr. Karl Roth.

Top job, Waaled!
There is even still a family "Berthold" in Calw!

So they re-used an envelope which was before adressed to themself.

Please, Waleed in the future... :D :wink:
About the reuse of envelope. Judging by the size I would say it's close to an "A3". Not a common size to send by post and probably hard to find too.So the most natural thing to do would be reusing it. That's what I would do... :milwink:
