Denmark: Coil Stamps: Combination-Coil Pairs And Strips  
Starting in 1919 and continuing into the early 1930s, special vending machine coils were printed. They were made from special plates containing two alternating stamps of different denomination. These sheets were manually glued together using the sheet margin of one of each two sheets, and then divided into continuous strips, to make coil rolls of 500 or 1000 stamps. The 3+7 Ýre combination was issued in horizontal strips (AFA #25-28) as well as vertical strips (AFA #1-4), while all the others were only issued in vertical strips.

The AFA Catalog contains the primary listing of these combination coils. Each combination is listed (and often collected) in each of the two possible pair and 3-strip formats, such as: 7+3, 3+7, 7+3+7, and 3+7+3. Most collectors collect either all four formats or at least both formats of pairs or 3-strips. The stamps can include most of the same plate varieties found in the regularly printed stamps (see AFA Specialized Catalog).

The 3+7 vertical four formats are the only source of the well-known 3 Ýre Pearl Gray stamps. The Pearl Gray stamps are costly and avidly sought-after because are spaces for them (single stamps) in many (most) albums. However, the color of single stamps often "misidentified", when not still part of a vertical combination coil item. Oddly, most of the printing of the 3+7 vertical items was with the Pearl Gray -- the normal, Dark Gray is actually much, much scarcer [per Lasse Nielsen]. But, since the coil items are the only source of the Pearl Gray stamps, the high price of the Pearl Gray stamps causes the price of the Pearl Gray coil items to be much higher than the scarcer (in coil form) Dark Gray items.

The perforations of these stamps is often rough, and if the item was actually vended from a machine, the pair or strip is cut at top and/or bottom -- these are not defects. Centering of these pairs and strips can vary greatly and sometimes requires a slight relaxing of usual standards. The presence of sheet margin, from a sheet join, on the backside of an item, does not reduce the value or cause it to be priced as hinged instead of never hinged (if it is otherwise never hinged). A pair or strip with a sheet join between the stamps has a premium value. Nice used examples are especially difficult to find.

These coil issues are popular. My stock is constantly changing; if you do not see what you need listed here, please send your want list that you can be put on the waiting list. All such items are available for viewing on approval. I am always interested in buying these items.

AFA Coil #1a [1919 7+3 Ýre VERTICAL] Used VF pair with the scarce PEARL GRAY 3 Ýre (Facit #88b, AFA #79a). The 3 Ýre stamp has a small corner crease only visible from the reverse; otherwise, the 3 Ýre single alone would sell for about $200! This coil is the only source of the Pearl Gray color. Unusually well centered for this coil issue. Very fresh and attractive. The 3 Ýre Pearl Gray is seldom offered in Used condition, and especially not at such a low price!
