Superb quality registered airmail RARE USE to the CANAL ZONE, with two different Canal Zone receivers. This is one of the scarcest post-1945 Greenland FDCs with an extremely scarce destination.

ca.1955 stampless official mail 228 x 164 mm cover from GODTHÅB to the "Statesministeriet 2. departement / Grønlandsdepartementet" in Denmark. From the "Kæmneren i Godthåb" (violet handstamp on reverse), the treasurer or business office of the local commune administration, to the Danish State Department office handling Greenlandic affairs. The postmark is unclear, but this was in a small group of other stampless official mail covers dated around 1955 and thus is likely from that time period. Such items are extremely unusual; the vast majority were discarded upon receipt.

ca.1955 stampless official mail 247 x 177 mm cover from JULIANEHÅB to the "Statesministeriet / Grønlandsdepartementet" in Denmark. From the "POLITIET I JULIANEHÅB" (violet crowned handstamp on front), POLICE Department, to the Danish State Department office handling Greenlandic affairs. As often the case with such official mail, there is no postmark. However, this was in a small group of other stampless official mail covers dated around 1955 and thus is likely from that time period. Such items are extremely unusual; the vast majority were discarded upon receipt. A wonderful item for a LAW ENFORCEMENT thematic collection -- I do not recall seeing any other Greenlandic police-related items.

Dansk Nordostgrønlands Ekspedition 1938-39 (Danish Northeast Greenland Expedition 1938-39) official expedition fundraising post card with the official expedition 18 May 1939 postmark on various Danish stamps as usual. From 10 July 1938 to 16 September 1939, about 7000 cards were carried by the expedition. At the conclusion, the expedition was picked up at Mørkefjord by the ship Gustav Holm (see Scott #35-38) and taken via Scoresbysund (Greenland), to Isafjord, Iceland; from there they traveled directly back København, Denmark. Thus expedition cards also relate to Icelandic postal history! As listed by Wowern and DAKA GF6 catalogs... There are two types of the post card: A = short "i" in "Pris" and B = tall "i" in "Pris". There are two types of the postmark which the catalogs list but do not assign a type number, thus I assign: JSA Type 1 = 8 mm bridge and unbroken outer circle; JSA Type 2 = 7 mm bridge and break in outer circle over "OS" of "NORDOST". Upon arrival back in København, five different receiving postmarks are known. As of Wowern GF3 1976, only 15 of the possible 20 three-way combinations were known. DAKA GF6 1997 lists all 20 combinations almost all having identical prices, but I suspect that not all were known/documented. This example is: A-1-21: Card A (short i), Cancel 1 (8 mm), København 21 receiver, and forwarded within København. VF condition with minor mounting adhesion on reverse.
