Are there any members out there who might be able to provide me with a translation of this text? If so, I thank thee in advance from the depths of my heart!
According to the seller's description (about all I have to go on, really): A 1942 money letter endorsed "Símamál" between the telegraph stations of BORDEYRI and BÓLSTADARHLÍD. On the reverse are two black wax seals on back as well as a transit cancel from BLÖNDUÓS.
From what I understand, Borðeyri is a small town in northern Iceland that once used to be a thriving trading post in the early twentieth century but is now little more than a collection of buildings with a population of about 20 or so people.
I was intrigued because of the wartime (1942) postmarks that fit my collection niche well even if Iceland still lies somewhat south of the Arctic circle. Yet information seems sparse, so any additional thoughts, comments, suggestions or other such relevant posts are always appreciated!
