Mint Condition Stamped Sampler from West Germany

Item details

MINT/UNUSED Stamped Sampler made in WEST GERMANY...

which means is has to be before the Berlin wall came down in 1989. (Do you remember President Regan's "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!" speech? Go Google it NOW!)

The sources I found said the "West German" marking would be from 1949-1990ish. I certainly would not date this sampler from the earliest period, but do think it could easily be from the 60s-70s.

As to the text…the best translation I can figure out is "Baking Bread Makes Cheeks Red." How fun is that?!?!

And I do know from visiting Germany that German bread is amazing!

You are purchasing from a smoke-free pet-free home, so no odors, pet dander, etc that may cause a problem for you. As I am new to Etsy and am trying to figure out shipping, I am letting their system figure the pricing. If I find I can send a purchase for less (in the manner you request, i.e. insurance or not, priority or standard, etc), I will refund the difference. I will always be glad to combine items to be shipped, which should indeed cost you less....AND make me VERY HAPPY to be selling things!!! (And make my children very happy that they don't have to clean out quite as much stuff some day, but, hey...that's another story)
