DENMARK TOP QUALITY STAMPS

            
A range of nice items have been added on this page. Be sure to scroll down the page... Take a look!
 
[Click on images to see the applicable price lists and more items & pictures,
along with links to larger pictures.]

DENMARK SCARCE CLASSIC BOOKLETS
H.C. Andersen & Advertising Pane Booklets


    
A new section has been added for the classic booklets, including information about the many possible variations of the Hans Christian Andersen booklet. (Did you know that each booklet's interleaves include one of five possible HCA stories?) Also, one of the classic Danish advertising pane booklets has been added.

DENMARK COIL-COMBINATION PAIRS
Including the 3 øre Pearl Gray

The Danish coil-combination pairs may not be well known, but they are fascinating and scarce. One issue was the only source for the 3 øre Wavy-Line / Numeral stamp in the distinctive Pearl Gray color [having it in the pair greatly helps prove the color].
 
DENMARK CHRISTMAS SEAL ODDITIES AND ERRORS: Very few printing / production oddities or errors are seen for Danish Christmas Seals. However, when they do show up, they are usually dramatic. Take a look at these great items.

By the way, if you collect Danish Christmas Seals and you don't have the official reprints, you really should consider including them. I have the only illustrated listing on the Internet that I know of, on four pages, starting here.
 
DENMARK 2012 STAMP ISSUES: I have finally completed adding the Danish 2012 stamp issues (up to date) to the website. If you have not seen Denmark's recent issues, take a look. If you are thematic collector, check to see if there are any stamps you would like for your collection; everything is illustrated.

The full Danish Table of Contents.
 
DENMARK COMMEMORATIVE NH VF GROUPS DISCOUNTED: I have been offered a group of modern Danish commemorative NH VF stamps at a very low price and thus can pass on the savings by offering the stamps in groups. So far, these stamps range from 1979-1986, all in complete sets. All are in pristine condition, and naturally include many Slania-engraved stamps. The groups are discounted by at least 40% and are a great way to fill lots of spots in your album. See the listings and images here.

DENMARK SLANIA-ENGRAVED TEST STAMPS NEW DISCOVERY

      
Wonderful, rare, new items that will be of interest to collectors of Denmark, of Test Stamps, and of Slania-engraved stamps. As few as 9 examples have been recorded. You have got to see these! Read the extensive information on the website.

DANISH WEST INDIES CHRISTMAS SEALS

   
Some nice new DWI Christmas seals have been added. Also, if you have never seen DWI seals before, you should take a look -- they are beautiful.

Also, a range of DWI stamps, varieties, bisects on piece, and bisects on full covers have been recently added to the website.
The new stamps, varieties, etc., can be seen here.
The bisect covers are here.
The full DWI Table of Contents is here.
 
FINLAND EARLY ISSUES, INCLUDING NICE CANCELLATIONS: A wide range of attractive early issues have been newly/recently added. If you include early Finland in your collection, there will probably be something for you here.

GREENLAND PARCEL POST STAMPS (Q-NUMBERS)
From Superb to Bargains

   
A strong selection of Pakke-Porto stamps ranging from NH Superb to attractive with hidden faults has been newly added. If you collect Greenland, take a look.
 
GREENLAND DANISH CHRISTMAS SEALS WITH GREENLANDIC DESIGN: The Danish 1921 Christmas Seal utilized a Greenlandic design, resulting in a very attractive seal sought by collectors of both areas. I have just listed some attractive items. (I also have the single ordinary seal, though it is not on the website yet.)

The full Greenland Table of Contents is here.
 
NORWAY EARLY ISSUES IN EXCELLENT QUALITY: Early Norwegian stamps in nice quality are very challenging to locate. Here are some stamps I think you will like.

The full Norway Table of Contents is here.
 
SWEDEN BOOKLET WITH TRIPLE MARKINGS: Most Swedish booklets have, since 1938, had the possibility of bearing "marginal markings". The possible markings consist of: Cylinder Numbers (either a 1 OR a 2; sometimes split between two booklets), a Counting Number (control or serial number, usually 5 or 6 digits; sometimes split between two booklets), and a Spine Print. Typically ONE of these three types of markings might appear every roughly 8 to 15 booklets; Spine Prints only appear every 50th booklet. To have a combination of a Cylinder Number and a Counting Number on the same booklet is usually a somewhat unusual occurrence. The combination of a Spine Print and one of the other markings is even less often seen. However, having ALL THREE present on one booklet is a rare occurrence! I offer one such item today.

Note: If you collect all Swedish booklets with marginal markings or if you just seek such items from particular issues or topics, I can help. Though I don't have a price list for them, I do have many hundreds of such single (and even many double) marking booklets in stock. I am happy to send approvals from your want list or from a general description of your interests. Most such booklets are priced just a very small amount more than the normal booklet.
 
SWEDEN FLAG DAY SEALS NEW ITEMS: I continue to seek out new items for this interesting section. I have also been able to restock some items that have been unavailable for a while. Take a look at the four pages, starting here.
 
SWEDEN EARLY COVERS: A nice range of early covers have been recently added. This page lists recently-added covers, ranging from pre-stamp to modern.

There is also a total of 36 pages of covers sorted into sections based on stamp issue, type of use, etc. They start here.

The full Sweden Table of Contents listing is here.
 
SWEDEN YEAR SETS AT A DISCOUNT: I was recently offered a large group of Swedish year sets at a price that allows me to pass on huge savings. The prices are discounted at least 40%! These are all complete year sets in NH VF pristine condition, including all the appropriate pairs, panes, strips, souvenir sheets, etc.

The stamps are in the format that Sweden issues its stamps, with pairs of booklet stamps, etc. If you use a Scott or similar American-made album and do not need the resulting "extra" stamps, no problem: I will remove them from the set and reduce the price accordingly.

I have started out with the years 1971-1973 and if they are well received, I will continue listing up into the 1990s. (If you would like to obtain such year sets that are not yet listed, PLEASE LET ME KNOW which years you wish to obtain.) For full descriptions and listings of the contents, with images, see this page.

UNITED STATES STAMPS
FROM POSTMASTER PROVISIONALS TO DUCKS & CSA

      
A wide range of attractive U.S. stamps have been added, starting with an 1847 Providence, Rhode Island, postmaster provisional through the Bank Note issues, Washington-Franklin Heads, and into the 1920s. At the back of the book, there are new items in the Envelope Cut Squares (see the "Other Back of Book" section), Duck Stamps, and even the Confederate States of America.

You can start with the first page here.

2.  2013 Facit Scandinavian Specialized Catalog Shopping Cart: Review or Check Out   Top 


The 2013 FACIT SCANDINAVIAN SPECIALIZED CATALOG is in stock and shipping now. This year's edition has proven to be quite popular; I am already working my way through the second large shipment of these catalogs. Get your copy now!

Order online here.

The big news for the 2013 Facit is a MAJOR SPECIAL ARTICLE, IN ENGLISH, ON THE ICELAND "I GILDI" OVERPRINTED STAMPS with a great deal of NEW INFORMATION. The article, titled "An Expert's Guide to the Iceland I GILDI ‘02-‘03 Overprints" covers 17 solid pages of text and useful illustrations. It discusses the background of the stamps, their overprinting, the different overprint types and the eight overprint plate settings, major overprint errors, wrong color overprints and missing overprints, the overprints on single & double postal stationery cards, the 1904 Berne reprints, and used stamps and cards. There is a tremendous amount of never-before-published information. Even the information that has been previously published has mostly not been available in English. The information about the postal cards also includes significant new research. Publication of this information has been anticipated for years!

This important article is likely a one-time event in Facit and, in my opinion, is likely to cause the catalog to be an early sell-out. Furthermore, if the information is not also published elsewhere in the next few years, the value of this catalog could stay high as the article will continue to be sought by specialists.

Despite all that Icelandic excitement, there is still plenty to recommend this catalog to all those who don't include Iceland in their Scandinavian collections. If you have an old Facit that is not in color, you owe it to yourself to upgrade to a new one. If you only get a copy every couple/few years, this is the year to do it. (See my note above about the possibility of the catalog's value staying high.)

The price this year is $87, plus shipping. In the U.S., our flat-rate shipping cost for most book orders is $3.00 by Media Mail. Priority Mail or shipping out of the country varies.

#732086   U.S. Collection 1851-1940
About 550 different, mint and used, on Grossman pages. All periods represented including 19th Century, a decent selection of Washington-Franklin heads, strong 1920s-30s, and some back-of-book (airmails run to 1960). Includes better older issues, but condition varies on these. Expect some typical faults (mostly minor), but overall the majority is generally Fine or better. Some of the mint are lightly stuck, but can be removed with care. Scott 2012 retail totals over $2000 (with many not counted, and misidentified items counted as what they really are). Taking condition into account, this should still be an excellent buy at a modest percentage of retail! $375.00
Order Online  (Will open a new window; the new window may be under current window.)

#732104   United States Old-Time Collection 1851-1940
Collection of hundreds of 19th-early 20th Century issues, mint and used, on venerable Linns album pages. Highly variable condition: much of the value is in damaged high-catalog 19th Century spacefillers (way over $2000 catalog value in this category alone) including Bank Note higher values, 30c and 50c Columbians, etc. There is also several hundred dollars of catalog value in a decent range of lower and medium priced 19th Century issues, a fair showing of Washington-Franklin heads (questionable coils and obviously mis-identified NOT figured) and a useful selection of the 1920-40 period. There is also a mostly used set of Kansas-Nebraskas of dubious parentage (none of the cancels are from Kansas or Nebraska). Throughout you will find quite a number of attractive multiples (pairs, strips, and blocks). Let us reiterate: while many of the lower and medium values are F-VF, this is a vintage old-time collection strictly for someone who is not fussy about condition and who likes lots of old stamps at a tiny percentage of catalog value! $350.00
Order Online  (Will open a new window; the new window may be under current window.)

#732103   U.S. Plate Block Collection 1925-63
Mounted collection of about 340 different plate blocks in Harris album. This includes better older blocks but also some hinging or minor perf separations in the early period. Then fairly complete from 1945-63 and seems to be virtually all NH from about 1940 onwards. Overall F-VF or better with vast majority VF. Scott 2012 retail for the early period and back-of-book (airmails, etc.) totals over $275, plus there is $38.65 face in the post-war period. An excellent way to fill in most of the 3c-5c era with a significant savings over retail! $109.00
Order Online  (Will open a new window; the new window may be under current window.)

#732068   U.S. Commemorative Plate Block Collection 1933-1972
Between Scott #728//1474, Collection of about 480 different commemorative and airmail plate blocks in mounts on Scott commemorative pages in green 3-inch 2-post Specialty binder (pages are complete for 1893-1972). A very few of the earlier blocks have a hinge mark or minor perf separation, but many of this period are sound; after 1940 the collection is virtually complete and uniformly sound, NH, VF. Scott 2012 retail exceeds $600. Here is your chance to acquire the whole mid-20th Century run at a significant savings! $175.00

Each clear page has vertical columns containing sliding holders divided into approximately 30 x 32 mm sections. Each page holds 30 items; thus the 7 pages holds 210 items. This may have originally been made for holding coins, tokens, or similar items, but it is perfect for Danish "stamp coins". Like new condition. $15.00

#732101   Stanley Gibbons Booklet Album
Handsome red 22-ring binder containing 14 crystal-clear plastic pages and accompanying black interleaves so that you do not see through to the next page. The pages are variously sized for various the British booklet sizes. This could also be used for other smallish size odds and ends, tickets, small cards, trade cards, ephemera, etc. As far as I can see, the album/pages have never been used. Though this particular binder style appears to have been changed since this was made, SG still uses a 22-ring mechanism. The current style of binder sells new for around $34 and the pages sell for around $12.50 per five pages; both plus shipping from England! More pages (and the newer style of binder) are available on the SG website if you want more. $24.00

Used and One-of-a-kind Philatelic Literature Shopping Cart: Review or Check Out   Top 

Most of these books are one-of-a-kind, thus be sure to order early. This is just a tiny glimpse of the used books available. Please take a look at the complete Literature Specials price list -- it has much more to offer. I welcome your want list for any Scandinavian books you are seeking. "New" books will be in brand-new condition. "Used" books will be used, though in attractive and serviceable condition; these books may contain minor owner's marks and have typical wear, but any significant defects will be noted in the description. Most "used" books are in much better condition than you might think; many are pristine.

For more and the latest listings, see: Scandinavian & Worldwide Literature Specials Table of Contents.
