re: could use some advice on this one !

The cover was sent from Wipperf├╝rth to Oldenburg.

I believe "Ausg.", here is short for Ausgabe (issue), so as Dave said, it's an arrival mark meaning something like "out for delivery".

The year will be 1869, 1870 or 1871.

re: could use some advice on this one !

I wonder if the time could be in the evening, with A = abends?

Otherwise I would have expected V for vormittags (in the morning) or N for nachmittags (in the afternoon).

Most likely, yes.

"Ausg(abe)" could also stand for "handing out", in particular as there is no street address given, and the letter was sent to a company who might have sent a clerk to the post office every day to pick up the mail.

"Nigel we were trying to pinpoint the actual year."



Well if there is no letter inside it would be almost impossible.

And just what Nigel said, the stamp was issued from 1869 till 1871
