22 [1879 25 penni carmine 4-Numeral, Perf 11] Used with VF centering and large margins, but one short perforation hidden by the postmark and a couple blunted perfs. Neat, sharp 10 July 1879 cancellation, placing it as Facit #17Sa, the first printing, and less than two months after issue. The next printing was not until 1880. Unusually early use and very attractive.

155 with Only One Posthorn Watermark [1929 1 mark Steamship s/s Bore I] NEVER HINGED with F-VF+ centering. Facit notes that due to the larger-sized stamps, the posthorn watermark is not present in the center of the sheet; and that such stamps deserve a 50% premium (but NH examples of the 1 m and 1-1/2 m with this variety are much scarcer than that). Very fresh and attractive. A seldom-offered variety.

157 with Only One Posthorn Watermark [1929 2 mark Turku Castle] HORIZONTAL PAIR, LEFT STAMP WITH ONLY ONE WATERMARK (right stamp when viewed from reverse). NEVER HINGED with Superb centering on both stamps. Facit notes that due to the larger-sized stamps, the posthorn watermark is not present in the center of the sheet; and that such stamps single stamps with only one watermark deserve a 50% premium. One/two-watermark PAIRS are MUCH SCARCER; this is the first example I have been able to offer in at least 20 years, if not longer! Very fresh and attractive. A seldom-offered variety.

156 [1929 1-1/2 mark Turku Cathedral] Used with F-VF+ centering and neat "...llskylahti" straight-line "postal stopping place" cancellation. This type of cancellation was used at small places that did not have an actual full post office, but where a mail carrier or train would pick up and drop off mail. Such letters would later receive the dated postmark of the next town (or railway post office car) it transited that had a full post office. This style of cancellation is rare seen on commemorative stamps, especially this very early commemorative issue, because there was very little distribution of the early commemoratives beyond the full post offices. Quite unusual!

129 [1929 25 penni M-17 Saarinen Lion, Swastikas Watermark] Used with F-VF example with partial HELSINGFO(RS) cancellation that does NOT show a year date. This stamp is quite scarce canceled in the proper time period, but, while this cancellation appears to be from an actual proper cancellation device, it was surely applied some years later after the stamp became invalid for postage at the end of 1930. I am offering it as-is, as canceled-later example. While "used" examples are regularly seen on the market, it is extremely unusual for them to include a year date; the vast majority were canceled well after the normal period of use (usually conveniently not showing the year date). Again, this is offered as-is at a low price.

130 REVERSED WATERMARK, Facit #112C1W2 [1925 30 penni M-17 Saarinen Lion, Perforation 14 x 14, Swastika Watermark Reversed] NEVER HINGED with VF centering. Very fresh and bright with clearly visible watermark (plain to see without fluid). Facit calls this an inverted watermark, but more correctly it is reversed -- printed on the wrong side of the paper, rather than upside down. This is a somewhat scarcer watermark variety listed by Facit Classic 2022 at SEK 50, but in my experience this one is very much harder to obtain that value suggests.

139 [1927 10 mk M-17 Saarinen Lion, Swastika Watermark] Used with VF centering. Well-centered and nearly complete May 1929 VIIPURI (also called Wiborg in Swedish; LOST TERRITORY cancellation -- now located in Russia). Canceled in the correct time period (issued in May 1927 and only sold 1927-1930;invalid for postage after 1930). Cancellations showing the year are quite hard to find; the vast majority of canceled examples on the market have conveniently undated cancellations (Used is much scarcer than Mint). I am seldom able to offer a year-dated example and especially an example with such a nice and complete cancellation.

The 10p of this perforation has nine Facit-listed colors, however a as practical matter, they breakdown into a rose color vs shades of carmine vs this color. This color is quite different than any of the other possibilities. While NH examples are extremely scarce, Mint hinged example are scarce and seldom offered; even Used is hard to obtain. Nice looking examples are rarely seen! Facit 2022 value SEK 450! Missing from most collections.

72a Type I, Facit 57IC1 [1907 10p Russian design, First Typographed (letterpress) Issue, Perf 14.25 x 14] Mint hinged with XF centering. This is a scarce stamp. There are spaces for the different types (and perforations) of this (and the 20p) stamp in virtually all European albums and listings in most European catalogs, but Scott does not (yet?) list the types.

Finland Scott #B107-9 CANCELED IN ÅLAND [1951 Birds TB semi-postal] Used VF/F-VF complete set with partial MARIEHAMN cancellations, all coming off one piece of the same cover. While the cancellations are each partial, together the complete capital city name is spelled out and the date is 28 April 1952. While Finnish stamps were normally used in Åland at the time, just like all other parts of Finland, Åland-canceled stamps can be quite hard to find and the semi-postals seem to be exceptionally scarce used in Åland.

B90 PRINTING VARIETY [1948 20m+5m Fredrik Cygnæus ("Cultural Personalities") Red Cross semi-postal] Used F-VF with faint cancellation. The background printing in the upper half of the stamp shows a significant amount of ink flaking of the engraved lines. Under 10x magnification, it appears to be a printing problem, not something that happened later. It almost looks like the result of a fluid having gotten on the printing plate. However, what first came to my mind as the cause of this problem was a report regarding the Faroe 1980 Europa issue First (Burned) Printing which was printed in Finland. The report indicated that the printing plate was defective because of a too-high iron content in the water used in the process. While the public was not informed of what was specifically wrong with the Faroe stamps; the suggestion was that the defective printing plates resulted in defective appearance of the printed result. The report seemed to suggest that this was a known problem and had happened in the past. I do not recall seeing any other such examples of Finnish stamps -- this is quite unusual.

B84 [1947 10m+2.50 Holding Baby by Feet TB semi-postal] Used F-VF+ with light machine cancellation. Unusual PRE-PRINTING PAPER FOLD variety from top right-third down toward the center of the stamp, resulting in dramatic white "lighting bolt" line. During printing, the fold had been pressed closed, but the fold has since been spread out to see the gap in the inking. While this type of variety goes in the "printing freaks" category and cannot be considered either rare or valuable, such clear examples are seldom offered!

B22 [1936 2m+20p Statesman Gustaf Mauritz Armfelt Red Cross semi-postal] Used single with Fine+ centering and absolutely superb WIITASAARI (now Viitasaari) 2 January 1936 SECOND DAY cancellation; Russian-Text-Removed type. The official first day of this issue was 1 January, however, with virtually all post offices closed on New Years Day, first day covers are extremely rare (the Facit value for a 01-01-1936 first day cover is SEK 20,000!!!) -- 2 January was the effective first day of actual use of this stamp, but even Second Day Covers are very scarce. Though the stamp has typical centering for the issue, the postmark is perfectly struck and perfectly centered. (Properly dated, used-in-period, postmarks are scarce on set.) This is an extremely unusual and very special example! It will not surprise me if a Finnish auction house buys this stamp and puts it on the front cover of one of their catalogs!

44 IMPERFORATE PAIR [1890 5 mark 3-Numeral] Yellow Green and Light Rose (Facit #33b) of the second (1894) printing. Mint, without gum -- appears to never have been gummed. Huge, even margins. This is an actual stamp printing, in the correct color on stamp paper, not a color proof (unless the color was identical) and absolutely not a private print from a discarded plate. Though imperforates are known to exist [per Waris] for all the 3-Numeral denominations except the 2 penni, Facit only lists some of them. Where Facit does list them, the prices are up to SEK 1200 per mint hinged SINGLE and up to SEK 1600 per NH SINGLE -- in all cases, these values are far too low compared to market demand. The 3-Numeral 1889 Series handbook by Pentti Waris (1998) surprisingly mostly ignores the imperforates (probably due to lack if information; it also ignores proofs) and just makes a general statement: "It is not easy to explain the origin of completely imperforated [sic] stamps, but they were probably illegally taken from the stamp printers." That accusation may be true in at least some cases, perhaps for the imperforates Facit chooses not to list, however, lack of information is not proof to condemn items. After 129 years in the case of this particular stamp printing, I believe it is time to accept such stamps for what they look like: Imperforates. Not withstanding the status of such items, imperforate examples are exceedingly scarce and seldom offered! This is the only example of this imperforate that I have recorded having in 48 years.

19 [1875 8 penni LIGHT BLUISH GREEN 4-Numeral, Perf 11] Used with Fine centering and light cancellation. Looks nice, but has crease and thin. This is the first color/printing of the 8 penni stamp; only 70,000 were printed of the total 450,000 8 penni stamps. Because it is such a distinct color I have (just now) pointed out to the Scott editors that I think it should be listed in the Scott Classic catalog. Facit SEK 650. Offered at a very low price.

8b, Facit 7v5C1 [1866 (actually 1873) 10 penni Ordinary Paper, Roulette I] Used with VF centering and very attractive, beautifully positioned, partial, oct-box "FR(ANCO)" cancellation. Two shorter teeth and a couple of roulette indentations may have been cleaned out of debris, but a remarkably nice example of a stamp that is extremely hard to find with such nice appearance. While this is not "full teeth", it is the nicest example of #8b that I have had in a couple decades and much nicer looking than some supposed "full teeth" examples I have seen. Scott 2021 value $375 and quite conservative at that (this is a very scarce stamp in undamaged quality).

Tiny blue corner cancel. This stamp is misidentified or missing in most collections. Otherwise would be $85.

Karelia: N21 [1942 5.00 mk Mannerheim] Used VF+ with neat, almost Superb, 5 March 1943 ALAVOINEN village cancellation. While this village cancellation is roughly in the middle of the scarcity range, such nicely struck examples are rarely seen. Even philatelic covers (this stamp has every appearance of being normally postally used!!) bearing cancellations from this village are quite unusual and have about triple the value of one of the larger-town cancels. Such nicely canceled Mannerheim- issue stamps are very scarce.

Only 11,600 letters were sent bearing this stamp (per Facit). M9 covers are often on larger envelopes or are not attractive; this example is especially nice.

This general type of cancellation is quite scarce on the 1875 4-Numeral issues and I am not aware of any listing or cataloging of them on the 1875 stamps. I have not been able to identify this one; it is likely a tiny rural station far from any post office. As an added bonus, the top three right-side perf holes are blind (did not get punched out); not often encountered on this stamp. A very unusual example!

152 [1927 25 mk M-17 Saarinen Lion, Posthorn Watermark] Used VF example with neat partial HELSINKI cancellation that just shows a "28" for the year date. My "philatelic spidey sense" tells me that this cancellation is NOT correct and thus I am offering it as-is, as if it were an undated example. While "used" examples are regularly seen on the market, it is extremely unusual for them to include a clear year date; the vast majority were canceled well after the normal period of use (usually conveniently not showing the year date, but sometimes back-dated). Two blunted perfs at top, but very attractive. Again, this is offered as-is at a low price.

It was used by the huge Swedish company (which had a Finnish office in Helsinki and probably other places in Finland) ASEA, or "Allmänna Svenska Elektriska Aktiebolaget" (General Swedish Electrical Limited Company); and that as of 2010 was recorded in use from March 1914 through April 1937. From my own observations, it is known on many different stamps (including Swedish use on Swedish stamps), but even though it is the most common Finnish perfin pattern, they are still quite scarce.

It was used by "John Gust. Wikeström" of Turku / Åbo; that as of 2010 was recorded in use from June 1899 through February 1903; and that it is the rarest Finnish perfin, with 0.2% share of all (almost 8000) Finnish perfins recorded in a 1983 census.

32a Rose, Facit #21v9 [1885 10 penni Rose 4-Numeral] Mint, very lightly hinged, Superb/VF centered, 4-block. Major plate variety: "white line through PENNI" on lower left stamp. Facit 2012 value for the least costly printing in usual quality (which is not this nice!) is SEK 225 = US$34 for singles and SEK 1000 = US$150 for 4-block, not counting the value of the major variety. Wonderfully fresh with bright color! Existing blocks of this issue are quickly being broken up and are much harder to find now than just a few years ago. Superior quality, with a scarce variety.

Mourning Stamp Facit Type I (long serif, shiny black). NH VF Sheet of 50. Though missing top margin, I have been told by somebody that should know that this is a full sheet. Narrow bottom margin unprinted. Narrow left margin printed only with red Swedish text (on stamp segment of margin missing). Narrow right margin partially printed black and partially printed with red Finnish text. Yellow gum; usually the gum on the Mourning Stamps is white; yellow is quite unusual. A couple insignificant perforation separations. A spectacular and rare sheet. To the best of my memory, this is the only such 50-sheet I have had in 38 years. Individual break up value as singles is $600; this should be worth much more due to the marginal inscriptions and the rarity.

North Ingermanland: 1 Misperforated. NH upper left corner margin block of 36 (9 columns, 4 rows) fully perforated with correct horizontal perforations. The vertical perforations are shifted about 3 mm to the right (thus cutting through the left "5"). The stamps are the normal 20 mm width except the right-most two columns which are narrower. The block also shows a variety of plate flaws, for example "white spot on N" in all the stamps of column 4. Clean perforations. Slightly crackled yellow gum (not the smooth gum type). Regular NH stamps sell for around $7/each ($250 total).

North Ingermanland: 2 Perforation Error. NH right margin block of 10 (5 columns, 2 rows) fully perforated with correct horizontal perforations. The vertical perforations are shifted in dramatic ways, resulting in an extremely narrow (14 mm) column of stamps on left entirely missing the "10" on the right side. The next three columns of stamps of normal 20 mm width, but greatly misaligned due to the previous error; both "10" are on the left side of each stamp. The right column is extra-wide (24 mm) thus including the "10" of the adjacent stamp to the left; thus there are THREE "10" on the right-column stamps. Normal vertical perforation at right and left sides of the 10-block. Very clean perforations. Smooth yellow gum. A dramatic type of error including the narrowest and widest North Ingermanland stamps I can recall seeing and the only N.I. stamps I recall with only one denomination or with three denominations! Stunning item!
