1 Medium Blue [1855 4 sk Lion] (Fine) on neat 25 June 1856 folded cover (no contents) with DRAMMEN cancellation struck three times (twice on stamp, once at side), to Christiania. The stamp is sound quality with four margins: top just clear, small at right, large to very large at left and bottom. Cancellation struck more lightly than usual, thus details of stamp design are very clear. Typical archival fold, not affecting the stamp. Facit 2018 value starts at SEK 3000 (10/2018 $360). Very attractive and with a very reasonable price!

Scott #51, NK #77II, Facit #77II [1899 10 øre Carmine, Plate II, Knudsen Print, Perf 14.5 x 13.5] (VF) on 15 October 1906 ARCTIC picture post card TO URUGUAY with LØDINGEN bridge cancellation. The small village of Lødingen located on the southeastern corner of the island of Hinnøya -- due west of Narvik. The card is a locally (Hammerfest) produced "Hilsen fra..." [greetings from] lithographed photo card picturing a few scraggly trees against a barren arctic landscape and with the text describing it as the worlds most northern forest ("skov"). The card message is in English: "We are bound to Rotterdam [Netherlands] from Archangel [Russia]". An unusual Arctic postmark, an unusual Arctic picture post card, and a rare destination from Norway.

169, 170 OR 195, 196 [15 and 20 øre Lion] (VF, watermark status not known) on 2 December 1942 airmail cover from "OSLO BR." with Christmas "JULEPOST" machine cancellation, to Germany. Bears violet small-size "Ab" in circle indicating that the cover was intentionally NOT censored; this was typically only allowed for known friendlies, diplomats, religious leaders, printed matter in volume, etc. In my experience this was unusual for such personal-looking mail as this item.

No British censoring (unusual at this point in time) and the U.S. had not started censoring yet. 85 øre rate: 30 surface and 55 air surcharge. Roughly opened. Looks nice.

No British censoring (unusual at this point in time) and the U.S. had not started censoring yet. 85 øre rate: 30 surface and 55 air surcharge. Rough condition; has been repaired at some point with tape -- may have been damaged in transit? Very unusual small village postmark.

165 OR 190 and 174 x2, PLUS 169 OR 195 and another 174 [5 øre Posthorn; 15 and 40 øre Lion] (VF, watermark status not known for 5 and 15 øre) on 3 December 1940 airmail cover from FLATRÅKER with bridge cancellations, to the U.S. At BERGEN the item was rated as being underpaid and needing an additional 55 øre postage; this would have been held at Bergen, the difference requested from the sender, and then postage affixed and canceled at Bergen on 4 December. VERY UNUSUAL EXAMPLE. The 40 øre stamps must be watermarked because of the use date; the 15 øre unwatermarked stamp was issued two days before this one was canceled, this is probably watermarked but perhaps not. The reverse bears VERY UNUSUAL (at least on Norway-U.S. mail) narrow Nazi censor tape and has been handstamped with "Ae" in circle ("e" code = Frankfurt). The handstamp in circle normally indicates that the item has intentionally not been censored, however in this case it was incorrectly used as a sealing handstamp -- VERY UNUSUAL use. No British censoring (unusual at this point in time) and the U.S. had not started censoring yet. 85 øre rate: 30 surface and 55 air surcharge per 5 grams. Slightly reduced at right. Unusual small village postmark. Very nice cover with several very unusual features.

170 x2 [1937 20 øre Lion, Watermarked] (VF) on 8 September 1940 surface mail cover from LARVIK with bridge cancellations, to the U.S. The reverse bears Nazi censor tape and handstamp of a type used in Berlin. (Airmail to North America was usually censored in Frankfurt, but surface mail from Scandinavia was normally censored in Berlin.) No British censoring (unusual at this point in time) and the U.S. had not started censoring yet. 40 øre postage appears to be overpaid by 10 øre. The interior lining of the envelope had been ripped out prior to mailing per censorship regulations.

172 OR 198 x3 [1937/1941 30 øre Lion] (VF) on 18 November 1941 airmail cover from BERGEN with bridge cancellations, to the U.S. The reverse bears an unusually narrow style of Nazi censor tape and handstamp used in Berlin. (Airmail to North America was usually censored in Frankfurt, while surface mail from Scandinavia was normally censored in Berlin; airmail censored in Berlin is unsual and sometimes indicates that it needed "special attention".) No British censoring (unusual at this point in time) and the U.S. had not started censoring yet. 90 øre postage appears to be overpaid by 5 øre (30 surface to 20 grams and 55 air surcharge to 5 grams). Unusually neat and attractive for one of these lightweight airmail envelopes.

Sealed with wonderful, small red wax seal picturing a sailing ship and with clear text, but appears to be in Spanish or Portuguese (?) -- nice pictorial seals are unusual! Very fresh for an item 160 years old!

Spitzbergen S/A (2005) #E4 (Pihl #E5) [1897 5 øre 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 øre 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.

104-110 [1 April 1925 complete set of Polar Bear and Airplane; Roald Amundsen Polar Exploration fundraising issue] Wonderful FIRST DAY COVER with BERGEN 1 IV 25 cancellations. Each stamp is clearly and individually FD canceled, but naturally it is easiest to see on the orange 3 øre stamp. This is a RARE first day cover, in date order only the third FDC listed by Facit. One does see complete sets on later-canceled covers, but FDC are very rare. The 5 øre is Fine, with the rest either F-VF or VF; none have any defects. The cover has a vertical fold to the right of center, but it does not affect any stamps. This stamp issue is very important for polar philately -- and it helped fund polar exploration at a critical time -- but the design also has great topical appeal for the polar bear and the airplane. The 2018 Facit value is SEK 7500, however, classic Norwegian FDC auction realizations regularly outstrip the catalog values. To the best of my recollection this is the only FDC of this issue that I have been able to offer in 45 years.

C1a [13 Jun 1927 Airmail Type I (first issue; indistinct frame line] Wonderful FIRST DAY COVER with "OSLO ULLEVÅL HAVEBY" 13 VI 27 sub-office cancellations. Transit canceled the next day with "OSLO BR. I" and then sent to England, with 16 June receiver on reverse. The stamp is VF. A yellow and black airmail label (not sure if this is also FD use of the label) is affixed; it was torn before application, but looks nice. This is a RARE first day cover. The 2018 Facit value is SEK 6000, however, classic Norwegian FDC auction realizations regularly outstrip the catalog values. To the best of my recollection this is only the second FDC of this issue that I have been able to offer in 45 years.

132-5 [20 March 1928 Henrik Ibsen] Wonderful registered FIRST DAY COVER bearing TWO COMPLETE SETS IN VERTICAL PAIRS with OSLO 20 III 28 cancellations. All stamps VF. The cancellations are clearly struck; a receiving cancellation applied to the reverse the following day. Vertical fold well away from the stamps. Remarkably, the FDC contained the registered mail receipt showing the matching registry number and with an "OSLO BKO:" thimble postmark -- finding these thimble postmarks on covers and forms/documents (their most prevalent use) is quite unusual. This is a RARE first day cover; the 2018 Facit value is SEK 3800 -- which I believe is much too low for this issue -- however, classic Norwegian FDC auction realizations regularly outstrip the catalog values. To the best of my recollection this is only the second FDC of this issue that I have been able to offer in 45 years.

145-8 [6 April 1929 Niels Henrik Abel] Excellent registered FIRST DAY COVER of complete set, with OSLO 6 IV 29 somewhat faint OSLO machine cancellation and then additionally canceled with OSLO hand cancellations. All stamps F-VF or VF. The 6th was a Saturday, thus delivered on Monday, with a receiving postmark applied to the reverse. Horizontal fold near the bottom, well away from the stamps. This is a RARE first day cover; the 2018 Facit value is SEK 5500, however classic Norwegian FDC auction realizations regularly outstrip the catalog values. To the best of my recollection this is the first FDC of this issue that I have been able to offer in 45 years.

150-3 [1 April 1930 Saint Olav] Wonderful registered FIRST DAY COVER of complete set with "OSLO Br." 1 IV 30 very clear OSLO machine cancellation. #150 is F-VF, the others are VF. Unusually fresh and nice. This is a RARE first day cover; the 2018 Facit value is SEK 7000, which is probably already on the low side compared to the scarcity and demand of other issues, however classic Norwegian FDC auction realizations regularly outstrip the catalog values. To the best of my recollection this is the first FDC of this issue that I have been able to offer in 45 years.

The stamps are VF and the cover is extremely fresh. This is a SCARCE first day cover; the 2018 Facit value is SEK 1200.

462, 466a [9 November 1964 30 øre gray-green Fish and 60 øre red-orange 4-twists Knot issues, non-fluorescent] Cacheted (NKS t-b organization) addressed COMPLETE (for the stamps issued that day) FIRST DAY COVER with "-9-11-64" very clear OSLO cancellations. The stamps are VF and the cover is very nice. This is a SCARCE first day cover; the 2018 Facit value is SEK 600; in my opinion it is scarcer than that catalog value suggests. This is the last issued of the scarce definitive FDCs and despite the more modest catalog value it is still missing from most FDC collections. To the best of my recollection this only the third or fourth FDC of this issue that I have been able to offer in 45 years.

B15-18 with extra B15 [21 October 1940 Nansen (polar explorer and humanitarian)] Wonderful GERMAN CENSORED, airmail, registered FIRST DAY COVER of complete set (plus additional 10 øre for adequate postage) with OSLO official first day 20-10-40 very clear cancellations. The stamps are all VF. Nazi German censor tape and handstamps on reverse. Instructional marking of "By air mail Lisboa - New York", intended to be sent via Lisbon, Portugal, a neutral country through which much air mail of this era passed; no Lisbon postal marking (often the case). This has been through the mails including censorship, thus there is some wear, but it is unusually nice. There is a piece of Scotch-type tape at the bottom, mostly on the reverse and well away from the stamps -- this should probably be removed by a professional paper restorer. This is a somewhat scarcer first day cover; the 2018 Facit value is SEK 550, which is about right for a normal domestic use. However, a censored example such as this demands a considerable premium.

The stamps are all VF. This has been through the mails, but there is extremely little wear. However, the envelope must be the earliest example of a self-adhesive sealing system that I have seen; the adhesive has turned brown (only visible on the backside).

Opened on three sides. Contains letter from original asking that, if found, the cover be sent back to him -- maybe he thought the expedition would fail even more dramatically than it did. Very attractive.
