The Mysterious "CANHU...MANU" card...who sent it?

It is a vintage postcard from "Cunha"...a small mysterious island in the Atlantic.

And the flip side reveals that it was sent from France: La Poste.

But look carefully and see that the French postage is in French Francs

and is that an old Deutschland postage stamp, too? Very mysterious:

Does it seem that the La Poste postal machine can be fooled to cancel

any kind of stamp, as long as it is a stamp? Very mysterious!

And no name on this card, who is the sender? Except for the clue of "MANU"...

and the other stampings, one must do some back-tracking research.


A postcard from 2015, is from the same sender :"ZAV"

 aka Miguel Zavarof :-) Mystery solved!

And this card also was cancelled by La Poste, but it cancelled an Hungarian postage stamps! ha!

Many thanks for the mysterious mail art, Miguel!
