Range of color shades, with most of the shades different.

Very attractive group, including an important plate variety.

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.)

Q6 [1952 5 mk Postal Bus "Busspaket", Parcel Post] NH VF/F-VF GROUP OF 3 DIFFERENT PRINTINGS. None of the catalogs properly list the different printings (colors, papers, gums) of the 1952-1958 Postal Bus stamps -- they were in use until the end of 1962 when replaced 1.1.1963 with stamps in the new currency -- there were multiple printings, but little about them seems to have been published. Some of these must be much scarcer than others! I believe the stamps with shiny gum and/or grayish or yellowish paper came earlier, and the stamps with duller white gum and/or bright white paper came later. This group consists of three distinct colors: Violetish Carmine (shiny clear gum, grayish tinged white paper), Bright Reddish Carmine (slightly less shiny slightly yellowish gum, very slightly yellowish paper), and Light Carmine (dull white gum, bright white paper). In 46 years, I have not seen any offerings of different printings.

I believe the stamps with shiny gum and/or grayish or yellowish paper came earlier, and the stamps with duller white gum and/or bright white paper came later. This group consists of two distinct colors: Darker Blue (shiny clear gum, grayish tinged white paper) and Lighter Blue (partially dull white gum, bright white paper). The former stamp shows the cut perforations from the booklet making process; this is normal. In 46 years, I have not seen any offerings of different printings.

M8, Facit #F8 [1963 Military] NH VF+. Soldiers were allocated only 5 stamps each for use during the training maneuvers for which these stamps were issued; the stamps were apparently supplied to the soldiers in advance and then could be used by family members, etc., to send letters to the soldiers. This example is much nicer than usual, centered just imperceptibly higher. Pristine and bright.

Some of the stamps have bends (not creases) which would soak out flat, but I do not want to risk soaking this scarce strip. By appearance and my experience, I am absolutely positive that this was postally used on a non-philatelic cover; such strips are simply never seen on philatelic covers and obviously postally used multiples larger than pairs are remarkably scarce.

The vast majority of mail from soldiers did not require the use of postage stamps. However, some types of soldier mail (such as packages) did require stamps; and also sometimes is seems that citizens managed to send mail through the military post office. I can only recall having stamps of this issue, with this cancellation type, used on parcel cards -- and even those are very unusual, even just as fragments of cards.

18 [1875 5 penni 4-Numeral, Perf 11] Bright Yellow-Orange. Used F-VF with neat blue "...URENG..." straight-line railway station cancellation. 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!

136 REVERSED WATERMARK, Facit #118C2W2 [1927 2 mk M-17 Saarinen Lion, Swastika Watermark Reversed, Perf 14.25 x 14.75] Used with SUPERB centering and neat postmark. Facit calls this an inverted watermark, but more correctly it is reversed -- printed on the wrong side of the paper, rather than upside down. A somewhat scarcer watermark variety listed by Facit 2017 at SEK 120, but in my experience it is harder to obtain that value suggests.

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.

The envelope has been folded (away from the stamp), but is still quite nice looking. 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 example is priced the same as a single used stamp!

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.

67 [1901 20 penni blue Russian Arms, Lithographed] Used with F-VF centering with 1901 cancel. This stamp issue was printed on chalk-surfaced paper to get a better printing impression. However, such paper sometimes did not receive the ink well and/or it broke down upon soaking. In this case there seems to have been a printing problem: Nearly the entire light blue background is missing and various parts of the dark blue foreground are badly broken up. An interesting specialty item.

M6-7 [1944 Small Format Military Stamps] NH Superb set of two sheets, both with remarkably good centering (quite unusual). Each sheet has been vertically folded once in the center, but otherwise is as issued (unfolded sheets are very scarce). The red-violet sheet is on whiter paper and has lines of roulette cuts in the top and bottom margin (I have never seen an explanation for this). The green sheet is on yellowish/grayish-white paper that is more translucent without any roulette cuts in the margins. These are extremely common stamps as singles and small blocks, but sheets are unusual, especially with such nice centering! There are plate varieties on these issues -- happy hunting! 2014 Facit value as singles is SEK 900 = $140, but these are scarcer than that!

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!
