213 [1937 2 mark Gustaf Mannerheim 70th birthday] with 4 June 1937 HANGÖ / HANKO cancellation, which is the first day of issue of this stamp. Black frame and text "1867-1937". Some of the references that I have seen state that cancellation date on these cards were backdated (but it was made in the late 1930s or early 1940s). To my knowledge, it is the earliest Finnish souvenir card type item.

1961 Europa (1960) Souvenir Card (looks more like a souvenir sheet). This souvenir card/sheet was distributed by Thomas De La Rue stamp printers at Stampex 1961 stamp show and pictures four proposed, unadopted designs (i.e. essays) for the 1960 Europa issue, along with an image of the approved design (lower right) in single-color gray (not one of the colors of the two issued bi-color stamps, thus making this design an essay as well). Designer names are in small text in the bottom margin of each stamp image. The approved design, by a Finnish designer, was used for all the Europa countries in 1960. Though it is gummed, this item was not valid for postage (the approved design has a thin white line through the denomination). The backside bears additional text and a serial number (different number on each). There was a time when these were regularly seen, but they are now only occasionally found. NH VF, perfect condition.

Though it is gummed, this item was not valid for postage (the approved design has a thin white line through the denomination).

WITH ACTUAL 30 mk blue STAMP AFFIXED OVER THE APPROVED DESIGN IN THE LOWER RIGHT CORNER and CANCELED IN BLACK with the stamp show cancellation.
