World rarity with photo certificate from Hans J. Enger
This cover was sent with "D/S Bergen" to Germany on the trip where the ship collided with D/S Norway" in Kristiansand harbour and sank.
It has always been believed that all mail went down with the ship, until thorough research by H.J. Enger revealed that a post bag was found floating and sent off the next day, and that this must be the reason for the technical findings on the cover and that the arrival date was one day behind schedule.
