Greenland: Souvenir Cards: FGB Mindeark - Society for Greenlandic Children Souvenir Cards  
The "FGB", Foreningen Grønlandske Børn or Society for Greenlandic Children, in conjunction with Danske Filatelisters Fællesfond, issued mindeark (souvenir cards) starting with #1 in 1973 and ending with #20 in 1993. In January 1974, a second version of #1 was issued, #1A, making a total of 21 cards. Issue quantities are as low as only 5200 cards! The cards were widely distributed, meaning that there are very few dealer stocks of them. For each card, a Greenlandic stamp is affixed and bears a first day cancellation for that stamp. It is important to note that the first day of the cancellation is before, and does NOT coincide with, the issue date of the souvenir card.

Cards #1, #1A, and #2-6 also exist as official reproductions. (Others may exist as well, but I have not seen them.) The appearance of the reproductions is the same as the original cards, but in the upper left margin there is text "Reproduktion" and the stamp and cancel are images printed on the card. The official reproductions seem to be much scarcer than the originals.

Extensive additional information about these cards, issue dates, issue quantities, stamp engravers, and illustrations of official information about the program and the individual card issues can be viewed on the Greenland FGB Souvenir Cards page in the Resource area of the website. To my knowledge, this web page has the most complete information on these cards ever published in any form.

All items are fresh and in VF condition. All items are available for viewing on approval. If an item you are seeking is not listed or is out of stock, please send your want list.
