309 [1941 50 öre coil gray King Gustaf V] two copies on 4 April 1941 airmail, registered FIRST DAY cover to the U.S., CENSORED AT BERMUDA. A handsome cover bearing an export license handstamp (fairly unusual; which thus indicates that there were contents of value, probably mint stamps of this stamp issue), a green postal label "Valutakontroll" (currency control inspection to prevent currency from being taken out of the country), and a registration label. The weigh is indicated as 4 grams. The cover bears the usual British P.C. 90 censorship resealing label, this one with censor number 6179, which was used in Bermuda. [Before December 1941 the usual I.C. marking or handstamp was not applied to these labels when used at Bermuda.] Lastly, the reverse bears a red 5 digit number, which is a Bermuda censor system number for tracking registered mail [in comparison, a similar type of number, but usually with a cent sign, in violet, was used by U.S. censors for the same purpose]. This type of red number on reverse was only used at Bermuda, on registered mail, thus examples are fairly scarce. Three U.S. backstamps. In all, a very interesting FDC showing multiple affects of the early wartime period in the brief window before the U.S. entered the war.

1949 Start of Aerograms: Denmark, Finland, Sweden. Group of four first-day-of-service (9 October) aerograms (two Finnish with different cancels). Of these countries, only Denmark was ready with a postal stationery aerogram form; the other two countries had an official form, but required a stamp to be affixed. The Swedish example bears a printed cachet -- very unusual -- and was used locally. The other three were used overseas. An interesting group.

Sweden Postal Card Facit #2CI {1873 First Issue 6 öre postal card, Text Type C, Indicia Type I]. Used VF with NORWEGIAN ship mail handling cancellation "BUREAU REEXPEDIANT DE CHRSTIANIA" 9 April 1879 to the Royal Hospital in Christiania. Received notation on the next day. Probably posted in transit on board a Swedish ship. Though not a paquebot cancellation (I do not believe that there were such in Norway at this time) this appears to be a Paquebot use; first port of arrival cancels the postage. I have had many thousands (!!) of this Swedish post card type, but this is the first one in 44 years that I can recall having a Norwegian cancellation. An exceptional early ship mail item.

STOCKHOLM straight-line Type 3 cancel, used 1752-1770, (VF) on very attractive private folded letter, no contents, probably to Jonköping. Has penciled 1756 date on reverse, perhaps from an archival source. Addressed in an archaic, very difficult to read hand, but starts out "Royal Majesty...", probably to a government official (not the king himself). Very nice quality with neat black wax seal. Facit Postal VIII (2009) value SEK 1200 = $190 for normal quality. This is nicer!

The Nordenskjöld family has been very important in Swedish history. With manuscript "Lösen 66 kop" Finnish postage due marking (Postage Due 66 kopek).

13 Light Yellowish Brown [1862 3 öre Lion, Type II (1863)] SUPERB PAIR on 8 July 1872 PRINTED MATTER rate folded letter front-only. Archival crease, not affecting the stamps. The stamps are of an unusual color and Superb centering is really quite scarce for this issue. Off cover, the Superb pair of this color would sell for $50. (Note that this is just a front, not the full cover.) Priced only as the used pair of stamps! Beautiful.

58 [1891 10 öre Engraved Oscar] (VF) on 14 August 1908 picture post card (photo scene from town of Säfsjö) to the U.S., with RAILWAY cancellation "PKXP. No 2 A. INR. U.", Danish transit postmark (unusual on mail to the U.S.), and red U.S. New York "DEFICIENCY / IN / ADDRESS / SUPPLIED / BY / NYPO - I.D." handstamp. The so-called deficiency is that somebody could not read "Mass" as the state, even though it was right there. What makes this card especially interesting is that it is a HAND-DRAWN DIVIDED BACK card. Prior to 1 October 1907 divided back cards to the U.S. were charged at the letter rate. This sender was utilizing an earlier undivided-back card, dividing the back so that a message could be written without obscuring the picture on the other side. I do not recall previously seeing a Swedish hand-drawn divided-back card. This is an important type of item in the time line of the postal history of Swedish post cards.

J15 [1922 10 øre Green Postage Due] (VF) tied by 26 July 1922 KJØBENHAVN cancellation on 24 July picture post card posted aboard the Swedish naval ship H.M.S. SVERIGE (apparently near Båstad, Sweden, at the time). There appears to have been a stamp affixed and canceled at lower right, but it must have quickly come off; there is a Swedish octagonal-boxed "T." handstamp, a blue manuscript Danish "10", and the Danish postage due stamp. If there had been a stamp that had fallen off, this should not have been rated as postage due.

J15 [1922 10 øre Green Postage Due] (F-VF) tied by 25 September 1923 "KJØBENHAVN N." cancellation on 24 September (nice Swedish text-machine Gothenburg Exposition cancellation) underpaid envelope franked with 15 öre Sweden Scott #167 (or maybe 189?? Ha!). Swedish boxed "T 10 õre" (somewhat unusual) handstamp, blue manuscript Danish "10", and the Danish postage due stamp. The correct postage rate was 20 öre, thus the shortage was doubled. There was no return address, thus it could not be returned to sender for additional payment.

No Swedish postage due markings, thus was probably mailed on the ferry or train between Hälsingborg, Sweden, and Helsingør, Denmark. Blue manuscript Danish "20 T", and the Danish postage due stamp.

Iceland #117 [1920 15 aur Christian X, still in active use at the time] (F-VF) on 7 July 1934 Icelandic picture post card (real photo of Leif Ericsson statue) mailed aboard and WITHIN the SWEDISH cruise ship M/S Kungsholm, as it crossed the Arctic Circle, presumably after most recently having visited Iceland. Small spot near top. Canceled and handstamped with the seemingly full range (five different) of the official postal cancellations and handstamps available in the ship post office. Though I have handled hundreds of Kungsholm covers mailed at sea around the world, this is the first in 38 years that I can recall being mailed WITHIN the ship and probably one of less than five that have borne Icelandic stamps or markings.
