KÖLN AM RHEIN. Kuxschein, unissued. green, black. Gruben- und Hüttenbetrieb bei St. Blasien im Badischen Schwarzwald. Very large format (50x32 cm) with a superb vignette of a mining area and a minor at work. Founded by the Cologne mine owner Emil Notton in 1900 to mine, mainly for nickel ore. Although an old tunnel was opened, actual mining didn't happen. It is only in 1934, when the mine went to the newly founded Deutsche Nickel-Berwgwerk AG that mining started. In excellent condition.
