Finland #213 [1937 2 mark Field-Marshal Gustaf Mannerheim] (F-VF) on 20 July 1937 (the stamp was issued 4 June) letter card ("KORT-BREV / ÅLANDSPOST" with MARIEHAMN (Åland) bi-lingual cancellation, to KARIS, Finland, with a faint but clear 21 July 1937 bi-lingual receiver on reverse. The letter card (which originally had a sealing margin that was to be torn off to open it; there is a minor rounding at lower left) contains an extensive message and is completely non-philatelic. I have never before had (and I do not recall previously seeing) an example of an "ÅLANDSPOST" letter card. The card branding was presumably the invention of a local stationery supplier; I would be interested to know more about it. This stamp on cover (even when normally used from a mainland Finnish town) is quite sought after; Mannerheim was an important figure in the history of Finland.

Finland #38 x10 [1890 2 penni 3-Numeral] (F-VF) on 13 June 1891cover from ÅBO (Finland) with circle-of-dots "ÅBO-FINLAND" Finland-style cancellations, to GETA, ÅLAND, with a multiple 14 June 1891 MARIEHAMN 2-ring style receivers on the front. The ten 2 penni stamps correctly pay the 20 penni domestic letter rate to 15 grams. However, this franking is quite unusual and is very dramatic. That is was used on a cover to Åland is all the better! Slightly roughly opened at bottom, but looks great!

Sweden 15 öre double postal card, Facit #29a, with 6 öre additional franking (to make 20 öre rate) used both ways! Airmail 4 June 1956 from TRELLEBORG, Sweden, to the post office at MARIEHAMN, asking about postal rates. Replied 5 June 1956 airmail back to Sweden, properly utilizing the Swedish postage paid by the double/reply postal card. The reply bears an unusual handstamp of the Mariehamn post office. Though mailed by a known stamp collector, this is a very rare type of usage from Åland.
