Austrian donated flood stamp
May 4,2006, I received a mail posted by Mr.Chilian, it was write in the back of the envelope that "For your collection! Flood donation Austria!".I have told Mr. Chilian before a few years, because the ages and energy, I have stopped to collect new stamp except the stamp about flooding. Mr. Chilian understood my idea, this mail just is a example

I know that the official language of Austria is German, even though I don't know the German and my vision is poor and poor, but I have to see careful the mail by way of a Chinese -German dictionary. Left side is a posted label, The "RUTTE" is about a place, "ID 4" and "6600" is a posted number, there is English "POSTAGE PAID AUSTRIA" in the middle square frame. I looked over the stamp, OSTERRETCH in the bottom, 2003 in the below right corner is original issued date, the translated writings of "A TUMA" cannot be found. "Die Post hilft"-"Post assist" was printed in margin. The subject of the stamp is clear and definite, the flooding submerged ground, only peak and sun was appeared, but the main image is hard to understand, I don't know what place the two askew crosses was situated in? there is rock, weeds, but I cannot imagine what place it is. Perhaps it is Austrian special place....the black character 75+425 was overprinted on it, it is the value of the stamp, 2006 is overprinted year, the original value and Euro's mark can be seen indistinctly,the "MONDSEE" is unknown. There is a arrived post mark in the back of the envelope, it is "Nanjing 20060504"

There is a receipt in the envelope, it also is German. Above is "Osterrechische Post AG UID-Nr:ATU46674503 6600 Reutte Planseestrabe 4 Tel:0577 677 -6600 Internet: www.6600.post.at, Its gist is Austrian post,address, number, telephone, web address(but the web site also is German) Below is the number and name of the stamp (Hochwasserhilfe 2006)and price(2 pieces is 10 Euro),but I don't understand the "B-FREE BON EUR 40", perhaps it is an added advertise.

In order to further understand, I sent an E-mail to Mr. Chilian, he sent a reply soon on May 10,2006, he said: "Austrian flood stamp : it was issued without prior notice on 21. April 2006, has a value of 0,75 + 4,25 (this amount is donated by the Austrian Post to flood victims). The stamp is an older issue now with black overprint: FLOOD HELP 2006 and the value 75 + 425 = total 5"
