Hi Ray,
it reads

REICHSMÃœTTERDIENST IM DEUTSCHEN FRAUENWERK
MUTTERTAG 1935

I need a little time for historically correct translation, but can say already now, Muttertag is Mother's Day, in Germany always the second Sunday in May  :)

returning to you later

Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding of worldly things moves his soul.    (Alfred Lichtwark 1852 – 1914)

it must be comparable to Hitler's WHW Winterhilfswerk Spendenbelege - google WHW Tieste Bremen please
in German language we tend to build endless words....

it reads
REICH (genitiv-S) MÃœTTER (plural of MUTTER mother) DIENST (service)
IM (within) DEUTSCHEN (german) FRAUENWERK (women's association?)

difficult, Ray, as I have no ancestors alive I could ask  :(

and this leads me to a general question to all GMB members:
am I really the only one in Germany who contributes here? In fact I never came across a neighbour so far  :?

We're seriously lacking in Belgians and French collectionneurs, too
