Article 59: Germany Hyperinflation Issue: the 250,000 Mark value on cover

Here is a cover with a rate of 350,000 Marks, postmarked in late September, 1923 with a single 250,000 Mark value and single and vertical strip of four of the 20,000 Mark value. A detail of the stamps, and the not-so-legible postmark, are shown below. I would be delighted if an INFLA expert declared it genuine. However, I am not holding my hopes for that to happen. Quick links are for the main page, covers with rates of 250,000 Marks (September 27, 1923), 350,000 Marks (Late September, 1923), 750,000 Marks (September 22, 1923), 2,000,000 Marks (October 6, 1923), 4,000,000 Marks (November 2, 1923: seems too late for such a "low" rate), two covers; 6,000,000 Marks (cover 1, October 2, 1923) (cover 2, October 8, 1923), 7,000,000 Marks (October 12, 1923), and a whopping 40,000,000 Marks (October 11, 1923), which stands out as suspicious for the date, and blocks of the 1,000,000,000 Mark value, and of the 10,000,000,000 Mark value.
