B50 [1943 5.50 + 35 Red Cross Semi-postal] (VF) solo use on 6 April 1943 cover from HELSINKI (machine cancellation promoting saving) to Sweden. Finnish censored. From one philatelist to another - on reverse has large red boxed hand stamp that appears (text is unclear) to signify PHILATELIC CENSORSHIP. Such philatelic censorship was also done in Norway and England, but I do not recall seeing any other Finnish examples. RARE!

Finland Scott #176D [1945 5 mk blue M-30 Lion] (VF) on 8 January 1946 cover from MARIEHAMN to Stockholm, Sweden. Censored with Finnish #63 violet censor handstamp. The Nordic 20 gram letter rate of 5.00 mk was in use for only a short time: 1 July 1945 through 15 January 1946. Post-WWII Åland censored covers are scarce -- this may be the latest example I have seen. A very nice cover.
