Norway: Locals: Spitzbergen  
Norwegian local post stamps have most recently been cataloged in 2005; the catalog is available from me. The 2005 numbers are often different from the 1963 Pihl numbers, but many people still use the 1963 numbering which was the previous standard reference. Condition standards for locals are not the same as for regular stamps. In some issues thins are the norm. In general, defects that affect the value or appearance of the stamps will be mentioned. As always, all items are guaranteed, as is your satisfaction.

Spitzbergen S/A (2005) #E4 (Pihl #E5) [1897 5 Ýre Polar Bear and Hunter, Green, Larger Format] (VF) on 14 July 1903 picture post card (Hamburg-America Line; midnight sun on south coast of Spitzbergen; #3020, artist signed H.B. Wieland), tied by violet "SPITZBERGEN / ***" 23 mm no-date postmark [Listed in S/A 2005 on page 152, but with date of use only given as 1898; believed to be used by the NDL cruise ship line which was also behind this style of Spitzbergen stamps.] To Hannover, Germany, with 10 Ýre postage paid with Scott #51 (Knudsen Printing), canceled at DIGERMULEN which was likely the first mainland port of call that had a Norwegian post office. Couple minor areas on the address side of the card where the surface coating has flaked off. Typical of use on tourist mail posted on board a ship calling at Spitzbergen. Very attractive and interesting.
