Iceland #17a [1882 20 aur Ultramarine, Perforation 14] Used F-VF centered example Danish 3-ring numeral cancellation. The number is not readable, but is two or three digit, making is much scarcer than the typical #1 cancel. Danish numeral cancellations are occasionally seen on previously uncanceled ship mail sent to Denmark, but not often on this stamp. With a normal Icelandic postmark, this F-VF stamp is $270!

O48 [1930 2 kr Christian X Official] and a 9-block of Scott #231 [1945 10 kr Viking, Perf 14] on piece of 28 July 1945 INSURED parcel wrapping from REYKJAVIK to MiklabŠ. The official stamp and a couple of the 10 kr stamps are damaged, however, the official stamp is rare on any sort of cover (2011 Facit value SEK 9000 on cover) and the 10 kr stamps are also scarce on cover (2011 Facit SEK 1200). Even the pink "V" insured label is seldom seen. Furthermore, it is extremely rare to find a cover or piece bearing any combination of official and regular stamps. If this were a full cover, or at least a full parcel wrapping, it would easily sell for more than $2000, however, I very much doubt that such an item exists. As it is, it is attractive and rare -- probably unique.

1947 Eignak÷nnun Stimpilmerki stamp issued for the purpose of documenting legitimate ownership and tax status of assets following the active black market WWII years. NH F-VF+ upper left corner margin 4-block. One of only two mint blocks (and a full mint sheet) that I have had in 42 years. Even mint singles are extremely scarce. A wonderful and scarce item. [If the block is not sold after a period of time, the singles may be available at $200-250 each depending upon centering.]
