RUSSIA Air Post
1935 Moscow-San Francisco, surcharged 1r on 10k, small "f" (in San Francisco), used on registered and flown cover from Moscow (August 2), with letter ("I send you with this letter our rarest stamp - with flight of Levanevsky through the North Pole to S.Francisco. Now every man here could buy only one stamp, but I get for you one on the envelope") addressed to Mr. W.C.Steiger in New York, with bilingual "Special Air Flight Moscow-San Francisco through the North Pole" cachet, v.f., signed Mikulski and Diena. Three Soviet fliers, Sigismund Levanevsky, George Baidukov and Victor Levchenko, took off from Schlovsky Military Airport near Moscow in the red-winged Soviet monoplane "O 25" at 6:30 A.M. on a 6,000 mile non-stop flight to San Francisco, via the North Pole. Flying over Siberia and 700 miles across the Arctic Ocean, the plane developed problems, and on radio instructions, the fliers returned to their base. This cover was actually carried by Levanevsky on this ill-fated flight and returned to Moscow. A certificate from Mr. Mikulski (1985) states that this cover is a great Air Post and Russian rarity

In February 1918, the Swedish Navy escorted the German naval squadron transporting Finnish Jagers and German weapons and allowed it to pass through Swedish territorial waters. The Swedish socialists tried to open peace negotiations between the Whites and the Reds. The weakness of Finland offered Sweden a chance to take over the geopolitically vital Finnish Aland Islands, east of Stockholm, but the German army's Finland operation stalled this plan)

The two stamps in one were printed in black on yellow green paper, showing twin coat of arms, each surrounded by the words "Poste de Geneve 5 C Port local" within a square. The interesting fact about this item is that its half was only used within the city, whereas the whole stamp paid the rate to other towns in the Geneva canton)

SWITZERLAND - CANTONAL ADMINISTRATION Geneva
1849 4c black and red Poste Locale, the so-called Vaud (Waadt), a magnificent used example of this very rare stamp, featuring four extra-large margins, with dividing lines on three sides, crisp impressions, neat strike of a red rosette cancel on piece with corresponding Geneva 3 May 50 struck alongside, v.f. appearance, signed Diena, Ernst Stook, also von der Weid, with his 2004 certificate ("en parfait etat de conservation et de fraicheur"), plus 2019 Jean-Claude Marchand opinion stating "the paper is slightly defective in the bottom left corner, but a tear or crease cannot be determined without taking the stamp off piece". The Four Cent Geneva cantonal is one of the key rarities of early Switzerland, with superb examples such as this being incredibly challenging to locate (Zu.9, SFr 25,000) (this 4 centimes "Poste Locale" adhesive was intended for letters within a city, while the 6 centimes "Cantonal Taxe" was used for letters abandoned and delivered in the Canton of Zurich. The reason why the stamp is called the "Vaud 4" is attributed to the fact that it was used in Geneva and the district of Nyon in Canton Vaud. The stamp was issued in sheets of 100 but the total number of items that was printed is also unknown. It was made obsolete in a year due to the December 1849 currency law, thus making Vaud 4 really scarce)
