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.

213 [1937 2 mark Gustaf Mannerheim 70th birthday] with 4 June 1937 HANGÖ / HANKO first-day cancellation. Black frame and text "1867-1937". All the references that I have seen that mention this souvenir card state that it was contrived by philatelists and some suggest that the cancellation is backdated (but it seems to date from the late 1930s). However, to my knowledge, it is the earliest Finnish souvenir card type item.

Mourning Stamp design printed on Christmas 1901 / New Years 1902 greeting card also bearing images of eight values of the 3-Numeral Finnish stamp issue and the Finnish coat of arms. In 1923 somebody wrote an explanation of the card on the backside. The text on the front is a protest statement. On the reverse is a printed holiday greeting . Interestingly, this card seems to have been printed in the U.S. and on the front bears the statement "COPYRIGHT 1901, / FINNISH LUTH. [LUTHERAN] BOOK CONCERN, HANCOCK, MICH." This appears to have been intended for sale to the Finnish community in the U.S., but it was produced in 1901. The card is a greeting card to be placed inside an envelope when sent to Finland, not a post card -- the Finnish post office rejected or destroyed post cards and envelopes bearing Mourning Stamps or such images or similar protest statements sent from abroad. Examples of items intended to be sent to Finland from abroad are extremely unusual.

1999 Finnish Roads officially issued combination postal cards / maximum cards set of four. Maximum card official #42-45. The maximum (picture) card side exists with either perforation 14 stamps or the very scarce perforation 12.75 stamps. The perforation 12.75 stamps were "accidentally" created by the stamp printer who was also the manufacturer of the first day covers, maximum cards, and other such philatelic products; they were not specified by the postal authorities -- the decision was made by the stamp printer. Because the vast majority of the perforation 12.75 stamps were used on canceled philatelic products, and were not generally sold in mint condition, they are very rare in mint. [The Scott catalog value for mint (or used) perforation 12.75 stamps is impossibly low; the 2012 Facit value is SEK 2400 (US$340) for mint set or pane or for a canceled complete pane -- even so, they are "impossible" to obtain.] To the best of my knowledge, virtually all the canceled single perforation 12.75 stamps come from FDCs or maximum cards -- supplies of those are extremely limited. When the maximum card sets were made, the set components were handled randomly, with the result that most sets seem to contain a MIX of perf 14 and perf 12.75 stamps. This MINT POSTAL CARD SET bears the perforation 12.75 Scott #1104a-1170b COMPLETE SET of single canceled stamps on the maximum card side. This is "rare" as a complete set.
