    Faroe Islands 1946: 30ö orange in block of four and two further values on registered envelope from THORSHAVN (Reg No 811) to St. Lucia. The stamps are cancelled THORSHAVN 30.4.46. The letter bears two transit marks, one NEW YORK 5 18 and another CASTRIES REGISTERED, dated 14 JU 46. A US Army Postal Services APO 807 arrival mark completes the documentation of the journey. Due to the content the franking has suffered slightly on the edge, which, given the immense rarity of this letter, should not matter significantly. A jewel in the crown of any Faroer Is collection.
