1949 Start of Aerograms: Denmark, Finland, Sweden. Group of four first-day-of-service (9 October) aerograms (two Finnish with different cancels). Of these countries, only Denmark was ready with a postal stationery aerogram form; the other two countries had an official form, but required a stamp to be affixed. The Swedish example bears a printed cachet -- very unusual -- and was used locally. The other three were used overseas. An interesting group.

719 [1989 50.00 mk Bear] (VF) five examples (plus two other stamps uncanceled on reverse) on front of 3 December 1990 international parcel card to the U.S., with total postage of 310 marks. From HANKÖ / HANGÖ, also with nice violet Finnish customs handstamp (and accompanied by additional customs form). Though sent to me 27 years ago, this spent the last 20+ years in a Bear thematic collection. It is unusual to find this stamp, especially in multiples, "pure" (no other stamps) on the face of a postal item, which is important for a thematic collection. Though "modern", really quite scarce. The bear stamps alone would sell for over $40 off cover. Very attractive.

Russification (End of Validity) of Finnish Stamp Designs. Mint VF picture post card illustrating the last four Finnish-design stamps produced (the four 3-Numeral Perf 14 x 13 issues). The upper stamp image is "canceled" 14.VIII.1900, when use on mail abroad (other than Russia, which was already forbidden in 1892) was forbidden. The three lower stamps are "canceled" 14.1.1901, when use within Finland (and thus everywhere) was forbidden. The stamp images are overlaid on two flags that never officially existed (white strip over blue stripe in the usual Finnish colors; yellow stripe over red stripe, colors sometimes used by Finnish patriotic groups during the Russification era). Public use of either flag was likely to get one into serious trouble (Russia of that day is not much different than Russia today when it comes to suppression of free speech.) This is a genuine ca 1900 picture post card, not a replica. Quite scarce! Wonderfully fresh quality.

B31-3 [1938 Skiing Competition semi-postal] VF registered FDC to Sweden. Crease between the stamps; not affecting the stamps and not obvious. The Swedes often did not backstamp registered mail such as this, but the violet "Aviserad" postal stamps on the front indicates that the local Swedish post office notified the recipient that they had mail to pick up; the marking is actually very scarce. Nice round stamp dealer advertising label on reverse. I have only had a few examples of this scarce FDC in 43 years.

The envelope has been folded (away from the stamp), but is still quite nice looking. Only 11,600 letters were sent bearing this stamp (per Facit). M9 covers are often on larger envelopes or are not attractive; this example is especially nice. This example is priced the same as a single used stamp!

Customary "ANK 28/4" (receiving) side postmark, but with unusually bold style of lettering. The date is quite early and defines this as one of the early printings which are scarcer on cover. Wonderful railway postmarks.

Group of 21 all-different Finnish railway cancellations on domestically used Finnish postal cards (Russian 1911 design, used 1911-1917), representing at least five major postmark types. Quality of the postmarks and the cards is at least mostly VF, with a couple of F-VF, but several Superb! Railway cancellations on this card design type (1911) are much less often seen than on earlier card types -- this large an all-different group is unusual. The group includes a few sub-types: different types of ornaments on either side of the date, size or appearance of text, etc. One 1916 censored card is included. Many of the cards also bear postmarks of a sending or receiving town; a few of those postmarks are scarce. The cards themselves include a variety of type, color shade, and paper texture differences. These have only been checked to be all-different, but to my knowledge they have NOT been checked against any catalogs for rarity or short period of use. There could be some scarce items in this lot! Basic railway-postmarked cards in typical quality fetch $7-10 each (much higher when sold by some cover dealers at shows), however, with this amount of variety comes increased value. Also, there are some very pretty cards in this lot that I would ask as much as $15-18 each for. I estimate the total of individual prices to be about $250. Offered only as a lot. A great way to start a collection.

In any case, this stamp was replaced with a new 100 mk issue on 2 June 1958 and thus solo uses on cover are seldom seen. Colorful advertising cover.
