Faroe Scott #1 [1919 "2 ØRE" surcharge on 5 øre Christian X] Used F-VF on 18 January 1919 cover with additional 5 øre stamp (Scott #97, Fine+) as usual. Neat, single, correct THORSHAVN cancellation; sent within Thorshavn. The cover is especially interesting because the backside bears, in the handwriting of the sender and appearing to be written at or near the time of sending, in perfect English, the story of the issuance of the stamp and that the stamp is "rare and likely to become valuable". Very neat and attractive, especially nice with a light cancellation that does not obscure the overprint. Accompanied by Jay Smith certificate with lifetime guarantee.

"V.L." FAROE PERFINS: Denmark #238B w/o hook on spar x2, 238D [1940 15 øre green and 20 øre red Caravel Type II] (VF with minor gum soaks as often seen) on 14 October 1941 commercial cover from THORSHAVN (single-ring style cancel) to Ejde. All three stamps have "V.L." perfins. The cover itself is a specialized printed money collection envelope for the annual premium of accident and/or fire insurance. With the 50 øre postage, a total of 12.50 kr was to be collected from the recipient and sent to the originator (so well known, that they apparently did not feel the need to put their company name on the envelope). The letter rate was 20 øre and the COD fee was 30 øre up to 25 kr (both rates 10 July 1940 - 31 May 1950). The Valdemar Lutzen company was the only user of perfins in the Faroes; from 1 July 1935 to at least into the 1980s. Like many of the companies in the Faroes, Lutzen was involved in many lines of business (including insurance), but the company was best known as the Faroes agent for DDPA (Det Danske Petroleums Aktieselskab; The Danish Petroleum Corporation), the Danish operation of Standard Oil. Attractively presented on an album page, along with Faroe Scott #61 [1981 150 oyru Old Thorshavn] with "V.L" and very lightly canceled. This perfin in on WWII-era covers is very scarce; the specialized COD envelope further adds to the appeal of this unusual piece of postal history. A key item for a Faroe postal history collection.

65 Olive COLOR ERROR [1981 10 oyru Rune Stone] NH VF single in Yellowish Olive Green instead of the normal Gray Green. Our late friend and Faroe modern-issues expert Art Quarles, who had many personal contacts inside the Faroe post office, was "absolutely sure" that this color difference existed when the Faroe post office received their supply from the stamp printer and that it was not a color changeling. I last had a few examples of this error back in 2007 and all very quickly sold for $250 each. I now have only four more examples.
