Hi i don't know much about stamps,but I've had this one for a while.It's stamped directly onto what might have been a postcard (who ever had it before me,cut it).

 

I can't find it on the net or in my catalogue.

 

My questions are-

Why was it stamped directly onto the card?

Does it have any value?(after being cut)

Can anyone tell me it's origin?(I was thinking German, but I could not find it under Germany)

 

Thanks just curious.

I am not a philatelist but I remember SA had postcards with stamps printed on them, too, in the long-ago days!

German States Wurttemberg postcard - probably 1890's - was probably cut out because the person who cut it out imagined it would have some value, unfortunately it doesn't - even if it were a full post card it would be worth possibly R10/R20, simply because so many were printed.
