Germany - Münster - Philatelie-Shop (datestamp)
Deutsche Post has established special philately windows in 26 major post offices throughout the country. Each uses a datestamp with the letters 'ps' in it to distinguish it from normal datestamps. The letters ps stand for Philatelie-shop.
The Philatelie-Shop in Münster can be found in the historical city centre just opposite the St.-Paulus-Dom. The address for postmark requests is: Domplatz 6-7, 48143 Münster, Germany. Opening hours: Mo-Fr 9.00-18.30 h., Sat 9.30-13.30 h.
For the envelope I used the new definitive 90 cent stamp from the flower series, issued on 11 May 2017 that I bought at the Philatelie-Shop in Essen on the first day of issue. Since Münster postmarked the stamp also on 11 May it makes the envelope a sort of a first day cover.
