Schwerin Berlin "68" mark meaning


Recommended Posts

Area code. South West 68 (SW68) Several manufacturers were located here- Schwerin, Juncker, Meybauer. Very much an industrial area which is why it was heavily bombed.

These postal codes with the compass point indicator prefix ( N = Nord, O=Ost, NO = Nordost etc) were in use until the 1960s and ultimately replaced by a five figure numeric code.
