In my opinion a fine original Prien signature.
Beautiful and interesting widmung on the backside.

You might want to post this in the Photo and Paper Items forum also.

I think you may get more replies.


Cheers,Martin.

It's an original IMO. It matches one I purchased in the 1970's. Tom

IMO nice original. Prien was between missions during the time he wrote this, landed
25/9 in Lorient and went to sea again 14/10.

Prien had his family home in Osterfeld which is very close to Leipzig where he signed this postcard. So everything matches.
