APO 810 (Baldurshagi) 4-bar hand cancel "OCT / 29 [INVERTED!!] / 1941 / A.M." with the 810 around the circle on right . Facit 2022 number: APO 810 H-3-1-4. Blue rectangular racetrack #612 censor handstamp. Non-philatelic cover from Earl Runkel, a member of the 10th Infantry Band, to a 2nd Infantry Band member back in the States. Franked with 3c "For Defense" Liberty Torch stamp. Roughly opened back flap, but looks very nice on front. Inverted dates in Icelandic APO postmarks are quite unusual. So far, this postmark type is the only recorded 810 postmark type in this time period. Non-philatelic covers of this postmark type are unusual.

APO 810 (Baldurshagi) machine cancel "8 - AM / APR 24 / 1942" with the 810 at the bottom of the circle. Sent "free" only five days before APO 5 ceased operation in Iceland; it operated for less than a year in Iceland. Self-censored by a major with the "Hdqts 2ND INF", with greenish blue round #60 censor handstamp. The return address states "ICELAND" which certainly must have been against regulations. Scarce machine cancellation.

APO 810 (Baldurshagi) return address on a cover send by a serviceman, to himself, using the Icelandic post office. Franked with Iceland Scott #219 and 224 on a U.S. 3 cent postal stationery envelope. The letter inside (which must have originally been in an outer envelope) requests the Icelandic post office to cancel the envelope and to send it to him and for the APO post office to cancel it as well. An interesting example of a enterprising philatelist trying to make an interesting cover.
