Pre-philatelic letter from Barkarstadir to Storuvellir dated May 22, 1840. Full contents and translation. Vertical fold.
Letter sent from Iceland, stamped Reykjavik 29 September (1893) to Vejle, Denmark. The adhesive has gone missing enroute to Denmark, then noted in blue crayon with a cross “mgl” meaning missing/mangler with Copenhagen transit mark and Vejle receiving mark on reverse. Charged 30 øre by the addresse, which likely is the 30 aur 2nd letter rate, some restoration to preserve an unusual letter from Iceland.
Official letter from Strandasyslu Jan 16, 1886 to Kollafjardarnesi. A very late and highly unusual official letter even though the stamps were in use. Extremely rare to find unfranked and official covers without any manuscript on front indicating it as an official letter.
Pre-philatelic and carried privately letter from Reykjavik to Tønder in Slesvig February 17, 1853. This is one of only two letters to the duchies Slesvig from Iceland. Ex Crafoord.
