Here are a couple of items from 1951 and from ITALIAN SOMALIA.
Items are arranged top to bottom, with H&G #1 on top and #3 on bottom,
using NGK numbers # 1 and # 2. H&G says there is a # 2, NGK says there isn't. Since I don't have nor have ever seen # 2 I would agree with NGK on this one.Enjoy

A Canada forces formula aerogramme used by Canadian troops serving as UN peacekeeping forces after the 1956 Suez Canal Crisis:

Note the 1958 UN machine cancel with the UN logo.

The location is not specified (as usual) but this probably originated from the Gaza Strip at this time.

Two from Malaysia using the design of the 1965 30c Bird definitive (Scott# 21). The cancel is run off the first cover but the letter is dated 1967:



I'm pretty convinced this a different issue from the above:

With all warnings about interpreting colors on computer screen, this does has a different color paper than the one in the first image. That's not a definitive difference, though. However, the border is also darker, which is not from heavier inking but is a different color entirely from the other printed portions. See below.

Here's detail for comparison:

The lighter border example is smeared. That might be just bad printing, though a couple others I've seen of this seem to be smeared also. EDIT: I did find one clearly printed, used and dated 1968.

Note also the border elements are positioned differently vs. the stamp design in each (compare with the bird's head), but that just might be from different positions in a full sheet of aerogrammes.

The position of the back printing is essentially the same for both.

So can anyone tell me, do the (modern) references list both? What are the dates of issue and which came first?

Two from Indonesia, a little beat up. Sorry scanner cut off the last 1/2 inch of each. The sender on each is Tobias Schneebaum. I googled him, there is a wikipedia page regarding his life...

Note the two above are from Irian Jaya, the western part of the island of New Guinea.

Postal history-wise, the region was part of the Dutch East Indies/Netherlands Indies until 1949 when the Republic of Indonesia was formally established in the rest of the former colony. The Netherlands held on to western New Guinea as Netherlands New Guinea until 1962 when the UN took control, for less than year. This is the period of the UNTEA stamp overprints and aerogrammes also got a similar treatment.
http://www.aape.org/exhibit_view_fr...rameNumber=1

Indonesia was then awarded the region and it was renamed Irian Barat/West Irian, with overprinted or inscribed Indonesian stamps issued until 1970, about when it became a province of Indonesia. In 1973, the region became Irian Jaya, then renamed again to Papua province in 2002.

So here's one from the Irian Barat/West Irian time period:

postmarked BUKARNAPURA 23.1.68

Here are a couple of ite4ms I found recently, that are using AEROGRAMMES
as a special event printing! They are both New Zealand 12 cent circa late 1970's aerogrammes. These were both used to commemorate "ROSS DEPENDENCY" events. The first was cancelled in Scott Base, Ross Dependency (Antarctica) on November 29, 1979, with back-stamped "Christchurch, NZ" on reverse. This cover was commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the First Flight to the South Pole". The inside of both of these items has a map of the Scott Base, etc area.



The second item was released a year or so earlier, but still was cancelled at "Scott Base" on November 20, 1978. This celebrated "25th Anniversary of Coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II".
This item also back-stamped with a Christchurch, NZ cancel.




So, not only two new covers, but two Antarctica cancelled ones at that! Enjoy.

Netherlands New Guinea. Not quite sure which ones I've got here. 15c for domestic service, 35c for overseas.


By the favor cancel date, the above should be from the 1955 first issue. The ancient Kessler catalog says light green paper though, and while it has a greenish tinge to it, there's still a lot of blue in the paper color.

back:


From the favor cancel date here, then this is probably the 1957 reissue. No details are given by Kessler, who again says "pale green" paper vs. white paper of the 1955 15c issue. Once again, there's still a lot of blue in the paper color. The back is just like that of the 35c above.

Then we have:


back, without the full inscription of the above:

Now this definitely looks pale greenish to me, and this may just be the 1955 issue, described by Kessler as being on white paper. Apologies, this looks more blue than green, I can't get a better scan of this. The paper quality here is not like the soft very thin paper typical of aerogrammes.

So, is there an incorrect backdated favor cancel on the 15c? Maybe yes.

There is also a 1962 re-issue that is without AEROGRAMME on the front. That and the 35c above were overprinted for the UNTEA issues in 1962.

Here a few more aerogrammes for you to consider.

The first two are from El Salvador.Issued in 1968. Two values. These are listed as F-G-1 & F-G-2 in H&G catalog.



The next item is from BRAZIL. It is a newer "generic Aerogramme. Date I am not sure of. But nice anyway....



and finally one from Great Britain. This is just a plain AEROGRAMME that one can get that doesn't want to celebrate anything. But what I would interesting on this is the stamp! The cover is from the British Postal Strike of 1971 with a "Transatlantic Airpost:" stamp. Cancelled for same. Though it was interesting if nothing else.



Hope you enjoyed these.
