280 pair [1949 35mk Olavinlinna Castle] with pair of two designs of 1954 Art labels, tied on 1955 airmail cover TO MONROVIA, LIBERIA with receiver. These labels exist in several designs and colors -- I do not know much about them, however, they are very seldom seen on cover! Any usage to Liberia is RARE; it is a genuine postal usage; I purchased the familys archive of mail (the father of the addressee apparently ran the College of West Africa at the time). Extremely scarce item.

305 x3, 302 [40m Woodchopper; 10m Green M-30] on 1954 air cover to the U.S. This is a very high postage rate (130 marks) for a cover to the U.S. The published postage rate charts for this period are confusing and appear to have some errors. At 50 grams, the rate would likely have been 120 marks; 55 grams at 132 marks. However, I am not satisfied with this calculation and cannot say whether this cover is correctly paid or not - my experience suggests that it IS correctly paid, but I cannot quote the rate at the moment. Still, an unusual franking. Note that most uses with multiple examples of the 40m Woodchopper stamp are parcel cards, not envelopes.

350 [1955-57 100 mk Helsinki South Harbor, Light Greenish Blue] (VF) solo use on 30 October 1957 KODAK advertising airmail cover to the U.S. Though Scott gives this color an issue date of 1957, there were five plates and thus five color shades printed from 1955-1957 (though it is unclear when the different printings actually went on sale). In any case, this stamp was replaced with a new 100 mk issue on 2 June 1958 and thus solo uses on cover are seldom seen. Colorful advertising cover.
