Still working on what briefzentrum is.

A Briefzentrum ("letter centre") is a regional mail sorting & distribution centre - there are 82 of these centres operating for the German postal system, as opposed to around 1000 in the 1990s before these larger Briefzentrums came on line. The first two digits of the 5-digit German postcode corresponds to a BZ (with the exception of BZ 42 for Wuppertal - that BZ has since been closed and mail with a postcode of 42xxx is now divided among 3 other BZs).

This German-language Wikipedia page lists the main cities served by each Briefzentrum.

`Lánchid`- Budapest. Inaugurated in 1849. Ing. William Tierney Clark. The work was coordinated by Adam Clark. Destroyed by the end of II. WW by german troops. Soon rebuilt (these stamps were issued in 09.11.1945-showing the destroyed and rebuilt bridge), but only re-inaugurated in 1949 (centenary).

Thanks for the added info Wadmalatz!

The Hungary issues were interesting.

The Romanian showing the bridge at Cernavoda,
would probably be the same bridge as shown on these !

Very nice (and rare) stamps Rod!

They've been only issued in 1867, right?

Thanks for showing. In fact this is Constanta (Kustendje- turkish name, because Dobrogea was part of the Ottoman Empire until 1877-78- and this stamp is issued in 1865. Latine name is Tomis, here was exiled Ovidius, roman poet), a sea port. D.B.S.R=Danube Black Sea Railway- english company. They built a railway line bw. Constanta (Kustendje, Tomis) - Cernavoda, following an agreement with the Turkish guvernment. The stamp is litography. It`s a wiew of Constanta, in the background a train. (it`s no Cernavoda, no bridge). 20 paras costed a postal sending on that route (Constanta-Cernavoda), no matter where was posted (clever!)- that`s why only one value, 20 paras was issued. If the letter was sent further, usually the Austrian Post forwarded the letter (i.e. from Cernavoda to Bucharest, Wiena etc. or from Constanta to Constantinople - the Loyd naval company- the receiver had to pay when letter was presented- they applied Austrian (or Levante- soldi)stamps. My guess after consulting a Romanian stamp catalogue is that first one is a reissue (there are reissues also on yellow or (orange)pink paper. Originally paper is blueish green (whatever that would mean- I don`t have any), the second might be just that. On the Constanta (Kustendje)- Cernavoda route the stamps were cancelled with ink (DBSR had no pmk). If on your second stamp what I see is the margin of a pmk, that must be Austrian (stamp from a forwarded cower).
