P”STSTJ”RNIN crown / posthorn letter seal. Oval, scalloped edges. Red on white paper, crown above, posthorn below. On piece from reverse of 1925 registered (tied by British blue lines) cover transiting Edinburgh 24 August 1925 and either transiting or arriving (probably) in KÝbenhavn 27 August 1925. This may "just" be an official post office letter seal. However, often such were used to "officially seal" letters. I can only recall having one other such seal about 15-20 years ago. If anything, this price is on the low side for such an item from Iceland.

1950s Postal Seal. NH VF. Reverse-printed embossed blue oval type of design that is seen in the postal seals of various countries. For example, in 1876, Sweden started using a design similar to this for an actual official postal mail stamp for letters to foreign destinations. In general, countries seem to use type of seal as a letter seal on official correspondence and/or as seal to repair damaged mail. I do not know when this particular seal was printed, but I am guessing that it was in the 1950s.

1970s Postal Seal. NH VF single. A remarkable, elegant, and colorful CIRCLE-IN-SQUARE seal picturing the National Coat of Arms and the post office emblem. The text includes REYKJAVIK, thus we assume that is where it was normally used. It was printed in the same manner as stamps, on stamp paper, by the famous stamp printer De La Rue! The date of issue is not known to me, but I believe it to be from the 1970s. It has probably been used as a letter seal on official correspondence and/or as seal to repair damaged mail.
