In 1909 a new local postal service was being set up, the "VEREIN STADTBRIEFBEFORDERUNG", however this was not very succesfull. A stamp of this company (the following values exist: 1 p brown, 2 p green, 2 1/2 p blue, 2 1/2 p yellow, 3 p violet, 5 p blue and 10 p red). I've seen them cancelled with a large circular cancel "VEREIN STADTBRIEFBEFORDERUNG * LEIPZIG" with no date.
