278 [1938 5 öre Gustav V 80th Birthday, sheet stamp] (VF) solo usage on 24 (?) December 1938 printed matter cover to Lwow, then part of POLAND. With extremely bold receiving text-machine cancellation making this a very dramatic looking cover. Lwow has a long and interesting history: signs of human habitation going back 12,000 years; many wars and occupations; returned to Poland after WWI; 1939 occupied by Soviets; 1941-44 occupied by Germans; 1945 ceded by Poland to the USSR, became part of the Ukrainian SSR (as Lvov); 1991 Ukraine became independent, name changed to Lviv.

297, 297a, 297a/297 BC PAIR [1939 10 öre Berzelius, chemist] on 25 December (Christmas Day) 1939 cover from ÖRTOFTA to London, England, via airmail. Correct 40 öre franking. Though this cover does not show signs of censorship, England was already at war with Germany and thus anticipating censorship, the sender noted "In English" on the reverse. The single #297a sells for around $20 OFF cover and the BC pair around $300 OFF cover. On cover the BC pair is extremely scarce. The fact that the entire franking is paid with the same stamp design makes it all the more important as a CHEMISTRY THEMATIC cover. This must be the nicest Berzelius cover I have had in 36 years!

310 (VF) [5 öre coil Carl Michael Bellman (song writer)] on 24 February 1941 solo-usage wrapper (with endorsement "Utgivarekorsband") to the U.S. Even in this "modern" period, wrapper usages are very scarce; interesting and exhibitable covers of this popular stamp issue are also quite scarce.

326, 281 (VF) [1941 120 öre St. Brigitta; 1939 20 öre Gustav Small Numerals] on 25 November 1941 6 gram airmail cover to the U.S. Correctly franked 140 öre: 30 öre surface rate plus 55 öre per 5 grams airmail surcharge. The 120 öre stamp is rare on correctly franked covers / envelopes; the stamp is usually seen on overfranked envelopes or on parcel cards. (There is no known solo usage rate for this stamp. A cover such as this is as close as one can get to a solo usage.) This letter would have likely been carried by the British secret night flights to Scotland; it may have also still been in transit on December 7, 1941 at the time of the Pearl Harbor attack; it is unusual that it does not bear any British censor markings. The cover is missing the back flap, but this is probably the nicest correctly franked on-envelope usage I have had in many, many years.

381 (VF) [30 öre Nobel] on 1947 solo-usage cover to the U.S. The cover is marked "5 g" to qualify for the special "5 grams" airmail rate (same as surface rate if qualified); there was not supposed to be any airmail marking, but this airmail-printed envelope was allowed despite the regulations. This popular Nobel stamp issue is very much sought after on cover.
