Denmark Scott #259, 261 x2 [1937 10 and 30 øre King Christian 25th Anniv. on Throne] (VF) on cover canceled 23 July 1938 with København machine cancellation on two of the three stamps (one 30 øre was left uncanceled). The cover appears to be philatelic, originating in the U.S., with a "registered" instruction, with a U.S. return address. Most likely sent in a covering envelope to Greenland. Whether it actually reached Greenland and was sent on from there, or just reached the KGH (Royal Greenland Trade Department) office in København is not known, but the "GRØNLANDS STYRELSE" violet handstamp on the reverse is how mail FROM GREENLAND (before Greenlandic stamps) was normally handled and marked at the time. The registration did not occur, even though enough postage was paid. [This was apparently offered in an auction, about 30 or more years ago as lot 760 (see accompanying slip) with an estimated price of $300. It was offered in another unknown auction before that as lot 1121 (number on reverse).] Though this cover still holds more questions than I have been able to answer, it is a scarce PRE-GREENLAND STAMP USE.
