Dansk Nordostgrønlands Ekspedition 1938-39 (Danish Northeast Greenland Expedition 1938-39) official expedition fundraising post card with the official expedition 18 May 1939 postmark on various Danish stamps as usual. From 10 July 1938 to 16 September 1939, about 7000 cards were carried by the expedition. At the conclusion, the expedition was picked up at Mørkefjord by the ship Gustav Holm (see Scott #35-38) and taken via Scoresbysund (Greenland), to Isafjord, Iceland; from there they traveled directly back København, Denmark. Thus expedition cards also relate to Icelandic postal history! As listed by Wowern and DAKA GF6 catalogs... There are two types of the post card: A = short "i" in "Pris" and B = tall "i" in "Pris". There are two types of the postmark which the catalogs list but do not assign a type number, thus I assign: JSA Type 1 = 8 mm bridge and unbroken outer circle; JSA Type 2 = 7 mm bridge and break in outer circle over "OS" of "NORDOST". Upon arrival back in København, five different receiving postmarks are known. As of Wowern GF3 1976, only 15 of the possible 20 three-way combinations were known. DAKA GF6 1997 lists all 20 combinations almost all having identical prices, but I suspect that not all were known/documented. This example is: A-1-19: Card A (short i), Cancel 1 (8 mm), København 19 receiver. VF condition.

"Greenland Expedition" of the 1940 United States Coast Guard Cutter "NORTHLAND". In August 1940 this Coast Guard cutter was sent to Greenland to survey the coastline, develop maritime charts, etc., in planning for the coming war in Europe and to counter German presence around Greenland (the Germans were reporting on weather systems and ship movements in the area). This cover is a "Crosby" cacheted cover for the 150th anniversary of the Coast Guard, with "GREENLAND EXPEDITION" typed on it. The cover has a typed address which was then changed by hand, but erased. The reverse bears a "Northland" return address at the Boston Navy Yard. There is no specific indication that the cover went through the mail, though it was sealed and opened. This cover is a puzzle to me. I do not know if it was prepared and never carried or posted, or if it was carried and then sent to subscribers in an outer envelope??? It is the only such example I have seen. It comes from the James Kerr collection and he had noted that he paid $200 for it at a formal public auction. Without more documentation, I offer it at a much lower price.
