ST. JAN 22 (24?) mm postmark on Scott #6 [1873 3 cent Bicolor Perf 14 x 13.5, Print VI (1888) Normal Frame]. Stamp Fine. Postmark upright and well centered but to left, showing "JAN" and the full 17 March (1)896 date. Such complete postmarks are unusual, especially on the earlier-perf Bicolor stamps, which itself is quite scarce! The postmark clearly measures 24 mm high, however, all the catalogs and the handbook only list a 26 mm postmark (used much earlier) and a 22 mm postmark (used 1877-1917). This was a metal postmark device, thus should not significantly change size over time. Is this a third type, some sort of oddity, or are the references wrong about the size?

7 (Yellow-Brown and Greenish Blue: 4c Print 2), Facit #7bv11, AFA 7t [1873 (1878 printing) 4 Cent Bicolor, Perf 14 x 13.5, Normal Frame] Mint Fine, original gum, reasonably hinged. With Facit and AFA listed PLATE VARIETY: "Foot of large 4 cut off diagonally". Though this variety has the same catalog value premium as the others on this stamp, this particular variety seems to be less frequently found or offered. An excellent, fresh and attractive example!

7b (Brown and Ultramarine: 4c Print 1), Facit #7a [1873 4 Cent Bicolor, Perf 14 x 13.5, Normal Frame] Mint F-VF, original gum, reasonably hinged. Very large margins for this stamp and with nicer-than-usual centering (often this Ultramarine stamp is only Average, with perfs cutting the design!). This example shows (under 10x magnification) the characteristic "checkerboard" printing appearance of the Ultramarine color (a feature not found on the Blue stamps). Because of the extremely thin paper used for this printing, most examples have become damaged -- this example is perfect without any defects of any type. Wonderfully bright and fresh example that is far nicer than the vast majority of examples seen. Facit 2020 value is SEK 3000 = $360 [12/2019], but that is for a typical example -- this is much nicer! A key stamp seldom offered in such nice quality.

9, Facit #9b [1874 (1878 printing) 7 Cent Red Lilac and Orange Yellow Bicolor, Perf 14 x 13.5, Normal Frame] NEVER HINGED with SUPERB centering. Perfect centering, strong color, perfect original gum, and perfect perforations (as much as is possible with a worn perforating tool that resulted in teeth of varying size. This is as nice (or nicer) than the best example I have seen in 46 years. This example is as fresh as the day it was printed! [On such thin paper, the watermark shows through slightly when against a dark background.]

9/9b [1878 7 cent Red Lilac and Orange, Normal and Inverted Frames] Mint VF+ vertical pair with INVERTED FRAME on lower stamp. Sensibly reinforced. Very attractive. Facit 2010 value for Mint combination pair, but with normal centering, is SEK 1500 = US$200 [7/10], however, this is above that grade and vertical combination pairs are much scarcer.

10a (Thin Paper), Print II. Facit #10b, AFA #11 Print II. [Dark Chocolate Brown and Dark Steel Blue] Used F-VF appearance with light early-period (serif) cancellation, but a couple shorter perf teeth. Very fresh and nice example of this color (which is often faded). Because the paper is extremely thin, undamaged examples are very scarce and undercataloged. Facit 2013 value SEK 550 = US$88 [1/2013].

10 Print 6, Facit #5f (Blackish-Brown and Grayish-Blue) [1876 (1888 printing) 10 Cent Bicolor, Perf 14 x 13.5, Normal Frame] Mint F-VF, regummed. Due to seawater leakage damaging the shipment from Denmark to DWI, Print 6 is rare with original gum (as noted by Facit and in the literature). This example appears to have very old regumming (the oldest-looking I have seen) and may have been done in DWI at that time. Two slightly rounded corner perforations, typical of this printing due to the seawater, handling, etc. Facit 2020 value is SEK 900 = $108 [12/2019]. A scarce stamp!

12a [1873 14 cent Bicolor, INVERTED FRAME] Mint with F-VF+ centering. The gum appears to be original, but the gum has been disturbed (typical for this stamp) and has a moderate hinge remnant. There is a very slight amount of aging on a couple of the perf tips, but generally the appearance and color are much nicer and stronger than usual. This stamp (and the normal frame version as well) almost always has at least a couple blunted perfs; in this case the two right corner perfs are rounded, but all the other perfs are excellent. (The paper of this issue is always extremely thin and fragile, thus perforation problems or much more severe damage is quite common). Approximately 1000 sheets (100,000 stamps, of which only 2,000 were inverted frames) were printed, but 90,158 stamps were destroyed by the post office in 1883, thus the net quantity that could have existed of the normal frame stamps is approximately 9,645 and ONLY ABOUT 197 OF THE INVERTED FRAME STAMP COULD HAVE EXISTED. Of that quantity, many were lost or destroyed over time, especially due to the very thin paper and the fact that these were used either on overseas mail or on internal postal accounting documents (which were mostly destroyed). Additionally, keep in mind that the existence of inverted frame stamps was not discovered until decades later, thus nobody knew to save the rare inverted frame examples back then. The remaining number of inverted frame examples is extremely small -- I would guess less than 50 and perhaps even fewer than 30! The centering of this issue is usually terrible. This example has rare unusually nice centering with unusually strong color. While the rounded corner perforations are a negative factor, the nice centering and strong color greatly compensate for the perforations. The 2020 Facit value is SEK 30,000 [about $3,600 1/2020] but that is for the usual centering which is usually only Average or maybe Fine. This is one of those stamp issues that should be acquired whenever it is offered, without hesitation and with tolerance of the realities of the quality of available examples. The rarest regularly issued stamp of the Danish West Indies. Accompanied by Jay Smith color certificate with "lifetime guarantee".

13a [1879 50 cent "Bicolor", 1885 Print 2: gray violet, thick paper] NEVER HINGED with VF CENTERING. Wonderfully fresh. Accompanied by a 2015 Carl Aage Møller photo certificate. Facit 2017 value for NH is SEK 6500! This stamp is very scarce in such nice quality!

13a (Gray Violet, Thick Paper: 50c Print 2), Facit #13b, AFA 13 Print 2 [1879 (1885 printing) 50 Cent Bicolor, Perf 14 x 13.5, Normal Frame] Mint Fine+, original gum, hinged. Facit 2020 value SEK 3000 = $360 [12/2019]. A very scarce stamp that is seldom offered, but when 13a is offered it is often misidentified and is really #13 (especially in the U.S.). This example is correct!
