Denmark Scott #280 pair (VF) [1942 10 øre violet Christian X] on 12 October 1945 cover canceled at IVIGTUT (sender not known) to a colonial official farther north along the west coast at FREDERIKSHAAB (now Paamiut), with clear 14 November 1945 receiver postmark on front of cover. Addressed to Grønlands Styrelse (Greenland administration office) in København in such a way to suggest that the sender expected the cover to be carried from Ivigtut by ship to Denmark and then back to Frederikshaab. I do not have the shipping schedules handy, but if there was no northbound ship expected for a while, this would have been by far the fastest method. Even though domestic letter postage was free up to 1958, the Danish 20 øre franking may (?) have been used (required?) because the letter was being routed through the Danish postal system to get it headed back toward Greenland. Furthermore, there were special handling rules for mail specifically to/from the mine at Ivigtut; this use may or may not fall into that category. Any cover from 1938-1958 having features beyond the normal types of usage is extremely scarce, often with only a very few examples known.
