Finland #213 [1937 2 mark Field-Marshal Gustaf Mannerheim] (F-VF) on 20 July 1937 (the stamp was issued 4 June) letter card ("KORT-BREV / ┼LANDSPOST" with MARIEHAMN (┼land) bi-lingual cancellation, to KARIS, Finland, with a faint but clear 21 July 1937 bi-lingual receiver on reverse. The letter card (which originally had a sealing margin that was to be torn off to open it; there is a minor rounding at lower left) contains an extensive message and is completely non-philatelic. I have never before had (and I do not recall previously seeing) an example of an "┼LANDSPOST" letter card. The card branding was presumably the invention of a local stationery supplier; I would be interested to know more about it. This stamp on cover (even when normally used from a mainland Finnish town) is quite sought after; Mannerheim was an important figure in the history of Finland.
