Germany: Neunburg vorm Walde

On Monday I got four postcards: two from Germany and two from Ukraine.

One of the cards from Germany shows the old town of Neunburg vorm Walde. Neunburg vorm Walde was first mentioned in 1017. In 1615 the town became a part of the postal route between Nuremberg and Prague. 

With a matching stamp:
1000 years Neunburg vorm Wald (issued 01-03-2017)
with a special postmark showing the Coat of arms of Neunburg vorm Wald

Because I was not able to get a "real" postcard from Neunburg vorm Walde, I bought a First Day Cover which included the postcard I used for the special postmark.
