B1a [1922 Red Cross semi-postal, 1941 Printing with Perforation 13 x 13.5] Though not the highest catalog value semi-postal stamp/variety, this seems to be the most difficult to find. Greatly undervalued in the catalogs in my opinion -- it has been more than ten years since I was last able to offer an example! NH with VF+ centering, but with the minor typical gum bends often seen on both perforations of this stamp. Otherwise as fresh as the day it was printed.

Finland: B8 [1931 Pro Filatelia semi-postal] Used XF with GODBY 20 October 1961 ÅLAND town cancellation. This is the latest use of this stamp that I can remember having in 46 years -- the last day of validity was 31 December 1962, right before the currency change. While we must assume that this stamp was used philatelically, the cancellation is genuine and it is the only example, from any time period, that I can recall seeing used in Åland. (An ordinary used #B8 sells for $45.)
