Image Not FoundCan someone give me any information on these Merchant Marine covers from Norway. I have a few of them. One of those shown has a Postage Due marking. All of the covers have a "Trykksak" handstamp which translates to Press Issue. They are all postmarked in 1949.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.Image Not Found

""Trykksak" handstamp which translates to Press Issue"



No, it translates to "Printed Matter", in other words the discounted postage rate.

They are ship covers for ships in the Norwegian Merchant Marine. See the cancels. This was a popular thing to do among collectors of the late 1940s-1950s. They would prepare these ship covers, send them to the ship's pursers and have them canceled and returned.

It's the sort of substitution that Google Translate is subject to:

Printed >>> Press
Matter >>> Issue

Here's the reverse from GT
