Stationery cards with overprint Í GILDI, type III
Any collector of Icelandic Postal Stationery is aware of the Í GILDI / '02-'03 overprint. These cards are rare postally used, most of them are the so called Thomsen New Year greeting cards. Especially rare are the cards overprinted 13th of May 1903 with the Type III overprint (5,7 mm). Below are four such cards and all are sent on the same day to the same person, Herrn H. Mörbitz in Dresden. One card is sent by Gleerup, whoever he was. Another one is sent by some Jeppesen and the card overprinted with Type II is sent by some Anderson. Sent by three "different" persons having the same handwriting.
Please - if you have or know of any card postally used with overprint Type III - let me know. I would like to know on what card and to where it was sent.
