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!

1941 Forbidden ("förbjuden") censored Mint photographic picture post card montage picturing bridges, locks, dams, and power station in the Trollhättan area. In the WWII era, the Swedish Defense Department censored picture post cards (as was the case in most countries, but it is not well known). Vital potential strategic targets (especially bombing targets) were not allowed, especially subjects such as dams, bridges, locks, industrial and power facilities, railway yards, etc. In the examples I have seen, a blue handstamp including the text "tillåten" was applied to "allowed" cards and a red handstamp including the text "förbjuden" was applied to "forbidden" cards; forbidden cards seem to be quite unusual (most publishers were wiser than to try to submit them). These markings were probably only applied to proofs submitted by the card publishers and thus are probably unique for each card. Closely related to postal censorship and a little known aspect of postal history.
