Official Mail "FRIBREFSKORT / VAPAAKIRIE-KORTTI" [free (no postage required) letter card] official postal stationery card with very detailed double-headed eagle indicia. The Indicia design appears to have been taken from (or at least it is virtually identical in style to) typical letter seal paper wafers (usually printed in red). 23 July 1906 use from Helsinki to Tampere with tri-lingual postmarks for both. Heavy vertical crease through the center (but away from the major design elements); I suspect most such cards are creased. Printed for and used by the authority in charge of public buildings; addressed to an architect. Perhaps I have simply failed to be observant (I do not think so), but this is the first and only example of such a (even general type of) card that I have seen in 38 years! This is clearly a special type of postal stationery and also belongs in the Russification of Finland postal history category, as well as studies of official mail. Wonderful item!

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.

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.
