Salvation Army centenary in Norway 1988, commemorated on Norsk FDC Service cachet. These are registered covers with local PM (Kristiansand). Very unusual. Seems to be issued in a limited edition. I have not seen these before, but due to the number on the cover, they seem to have been issued in at least 3000 ex.
“Stamp news” (Frimerkenytt) was issued by the postal authorities. This issue is no 7 – 1987, and tell about the forthcoming issue of the stamps commemorating the Salvation Army centenary in Norway. The stamps and first day cancel have likely been added on a private initiative. This FD sheet is unlisted in the SA FDC catalogue and is likely unique, as also indicated by the local and unofficial PM (Skudesneshavn). Local PMs are generally much less common than the official PO postmark. Two nature stamps have also been added; they had first day of issue on the same date (18 Febr 1988).
Two new Norwegian FDCs were just observed. Never seen them before. Both covers are cancelled in Larvik. Must have been a local corps member who had a philatelic interest. These are reference covers, not in my collection.
An unlisted Norwegian FDC was just obtained. The cachet is a business cover from Trondheim (A. Sivertsen) with 2 x 4 block of the Salvation Army centenary stamps. Cancelled at a local post office in Trondheim (Rosenborg). Very rare cachet, has not seen this before. Must certainly have been issued in limited edition.
A picture of a new Norwegian Salvation Army cachet was just sent to me by a friend. Not seen before and supposedly extremely RARE! It was cancelled in Mo (no. 8600) and was issued by the Polar circle Philatelic Club. This is a REFERENCE cover which is not in my collection!
At the time of the issue of the Norwegian SA stamp (18.02.1988), a National Philatelic Youth Excibition was held in Drammen – the Dramnex Exhibition. Two special postmarks was used; a Dramnex PM specially made for the exhibition and a Drammen PM picturing a local known site; Bragenes torg. Here are two different version shown double cancelled with these two PMs.
