Do not remove these from the cover. Covers from occupied Alsace to the US are very uncommon!

re: German overprint Elfob

I would expect there to be a German censor tape on the back .. yes?

and BTW, it is not "Elfob" but "Elsass" -- that is a single "s" followed by a double "s" in the old German Fraktur type.

FYI: The cover was examined by the Wehrmacht censors in Berlin who placed the censor tape and handstamps before it was sent along its journey. The small b indicates Berlin.
