Old antique posted postcard with a depiction of a village. The front of the postcard references Waxweiler, which is a municipality in western Germany. According to Wikipedia:

Waxweiler is a municipality in the coun. ty of Bitburg-Prüm, in Rhineland-Palatinate, western Germany. It is located in the Eifel, south of Prüm and is accessible through the Autobahn 60. The parish of about 1100 inhabitants lies 345 meters above sea level.

This postcard has ink handwriting on both the front and back. The writing is in a different language. The addressee is Gretschen Faber in Waxweiler. There is some printing beneath the ink on one edge of the card, but I cannot make out what it says. On the lower right-hand corner on the back of the card is imprinted 82082. There is a "Deutsches Reich" 5 stamp on the back of the card. The cancellation references the date "15.10.__", which I presume means that it was posted on an unknown date in October 1915. Please carefully examine all photos. There is some wear to the edges and corners of the card and a water spot on the back. The writing is faded in areas, and it obliterates much of the scene on the front.
