Item DescriptionIceland issued this set of 4 beautiful paintings of aircraft used by their Postal Service featuring typically gorgeous paintings by Iceland's premiere stamp designer of the era, Throstur Magnasson. Each stamp paid the inland postage rate of the time which was 35 Kronur - approximately 24¢! (the mail didn't have all that far to fly - even coast to coast in Iceland is only 300 to 400 miles!)
The handcolored cachet features the PUFFIN CACHETS mascot piloting his De Havilland 'Dragon Rapide' . . and unfortunately losing a good deal of his cargo!
The cover bears the 4 stamps, and two nice cancels of the official First Day of Issue pictorial cancel from Reykjavík, the capital city.
The reverse bears the PUFFIN CACHETS logo, and designates this as cover #1 of only 10 covers sent to Iceland for servicing!
