PLK 137 RAILWAY cancellations. Express label #3:1 per Facit Postal listing. Trimmed at top, but indicates sender was in Landskrona, which matches the route of the railway line/cancel. Attractive and colorful. Express covers to other countries (especially other than Germany) are quite unusual.

Express label #3:2 (rouletted) per Facit Postal listing. Somewhat worn due to type of commercial use, but this is a nice in-period commercial use of UPU issues; express uses of the UPU stamps are also scarce.

201, 217 [1924 25 öre UPU Congress and Anniversary issues] (F-VF and VF) on 21 November 1924 REGISTERED cover from "STOCKHOLM 3 / VÄRDE" (valuable mail cancel) to Spånga. Sent by famed Harry Wennberg stamp company. Heavy commercial sized cover. The back bears an untied 4-strip of 1929 "Swedische Messe / Gotenburg" labels; it is possible that the labels were already in use in 1924 to promote this exposition, but this would be the earliest use I have seen (or maybe they were added later?) -- they have not influenced the price. Very attractive -- I have seen very few matched UPU denominations on the same cover! The stamps alone have a high catalog value.

Very attractive and though very simple, it is very unusual.

116 Type II [1925 5 öre green Lion] (VF) on 30 October 1929 printed matter rate double / reply post card with "NORRKÖPING 1 / LBR" machine cancellation. Forwarded. The reply card is unused, but has Scott #119 Type I affixed (undoubtedly by the original sender) to pay the return postage at the regular post card rate (the respondent was to write text, thus the reply would not qualify for the printed matter rate). The card is a solicitation by a children charity and is an early example of such mail; it could also fit into a charity seal collection. While postal stationery double / reply cards are quite common, this is the first Swedish example I can recall seeing (in 44 years) of non-stationery with reply postage affixed. Very scarce!

With "STOCKHOLM 3 / VÄRDE" (valuable mail, even though this parcel was not insured and did not contain money) cancellations, numbered Stockholm 3 parcel label, and a separate "Stockholm" label (not sure of purpose). Reverse bears large, red Finnish customs handstamp and HELSINKI receiving postmark. This international (includes French text) parcel card has a February 1911 printing date -- this is remarkably late use. Excellent condition with typical wear.

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.

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.

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.
