Collections: Scandinavia: Iceland  
I am constantly buying large and small collections and have built up quite a stock of nice, clean Scandinavian country collections. If you are considering getting into a new area and would like a "starter collection" (whether small or large), let me know about your interest. Also, if you are seeking used binders or used empty albums to match what you currently have, again, let me know. Here are a few samples of collections. The listings below are included by happenstance. If you are seeking a particular country or type of material, please let me know. Payment plans are available. I guarantee your satisfaction.

Due to the low prices, variations in weight, and different mailing methods, distances, and destinations, shipping cost varies and is additional for items in the Specials Collections listings unless otherwise mentioned. When ordering please include a note in the shopping cart comments section indicating if you prefer faster/costlier or slower/cheaper delivery so that I may more quickly quote the shipping costs and options for you.

Collections and lots are not normally sent on approval. If you have questions about an item, please inquire before ordering. Special return and refund limitations typically apply to such items. Please see the "Order Info" page for details.

Each item is one of a kind; orders will be filled in order of receipt. Payment by MasterCard or Visa suggested, but I will hold items for 10 days pending receipt of check if you prefer.

Iceland 1956-1984 Commemorative / Pictorial Cancellation Covers Collection: Very nice collection and exhibit (ex Fred H. Bloedow, late 1980s) of about 80 Icelandic commemorative and/or pictorial cancellations on covers. Virtually complete for that time period; the main era for such cancellations started in 1956 and diminished by the 1980s. By their very nature, such covers are philatelic, often with cachets, but I do note an interesting French Naval cover associated with an Icelandic stamp show and an unfranked OFFICIAL MAIL 1971 REGISTERED cover sent from Vestmanneayjar (Westmann Islands volcanic eruption) to Reykjavik, with backstamp. Also a Horse Mail cover, sent registered to the U.S. (no the horses did not swim across the ocean), with backstamps. There are a vast number of topics represented including: Scouting, chess, volcanic activity, Norden, flight, postal activities, stamp shows, horses, etc. While some of these are normally in the $1-3 range, there are some in the $8-15 range, plus that very unusual official mail cover which would sell for at least $35 by itself. This is a terrific base upon which to further build. As a collection, priced at only about $1/cover but individually would sell for at least three times that much!
