Welcome to Stamp Community Forum, norseman012!

I agree, they are beautiful! The gyrfalcon issue is one of my all time favorite airmail stamps!

Lovely Norseman,
It's hard to beat the bi-colour stamp,
in any language :)

If perchance, you have any Thule,
I'd love to see big images of those....

I acquired this T1 earlier this year; original purchase scan, as my scanner is still dysfunctional. The stamp is CTO, with the well-documented 7/7/37 date.

Thanks everyone. I forgot to mention that these stamps are stock photo's that I got off the internet because I have not had the chance to take pictures of my own, but I do have them in my collection.
Tomorrow if I get a chance I will take some pictures of ones in my collection.

Sorry rod222 I don't have any Greenland Thule stamps

Oh... before I go has anyone ever noticed that some of the plane's on these early Icelandic stamps seems to be pointed downward like they are about to crash like the ones I posted here.

I really enjoyed your pics. I am fairly new to collecting, but I am getting into the Nordic region, I especially like the norse-style boats. Feel free to post lots more pics!!
Thankyou!

Anyone notice the dates--930-1930--Imagine commemorating the thousand year anniversary of something.

norseman, hope you post some more iceland stamps from your collections. They're really nice.

I recently started collecting Iceland but I only have new stamps. I've seen other stamps in the Facit catalogue and I'm eager to start tracking down older stamps. Just need to find room somewhere! :D
And money too, that's important.

rohumpy: they are commemorating the 1000 year anniversary of the Icelandic parliament, or Althing. Back in those Viking days held at Thingvellir, now just in plain old Reykjavik.
