Feldpost from Funk-Horch Kp 725 / radio receiver company, which worked on development and then subsequent launching of the V2 / A4 rocket. These were fired via remote signals, and the Funk units also monitored the flight for subsequent aiming. Struck with a Peenemuende (Peenemunde) VII / V cancel (weird coincidence -- to me -- in that the cancel for these V2 units was VII -- technically a Roman 7, I know but I always see V-II ). All Vergeltungs-Waffe (Retribution Weapons) aka Wunderwaffe (Wonder Weapons) Feldpost are quite scarce. This comes from a large collection formed over decades and which had only 52 pieces, which is still the largest grouping I've seen offered from a single owner. With long contents.
