Design of Scott #360, Facit #389, AFA #366 [1956 Jacob Christian Ellehammer; 50th anniversary of first test flight at Lindholm] ORIGINAL ARTWORK by the stamp designer Viggo Bang: Artist working drawing executed in India ink, pencil, and watercolor; black and shades of gray; on thick paper, 277 x 200 mm. Many similarities to the issued stamp, but showing the airplane straight-on and well off the ground. FROM THE COLLECTION OF THE ARTIST (originally sold at auction in the 1980s). A handsome, unique item of interest to both philatelists and flight historians. Such items are usually only seen once (if that) in a lifetime. Spectacular!

Design of Scott #360, Facit #389, AFA #366 [1956 Jacob Christian Ellehammer; 50th anniversary of first test flight at Lindholm] ORIGINAL ARTWORK believed to be by the stamp designer Viggo Bang: Artist working sketch executed in pencil on acetate, 180 x 164 mm. Composite-design pencil sketching of the outlines and key lines of the airplane; a straight-on view flying; and side view of pilot in position. The outline view is an exact match to the ink outline view also being offered. Believed to be from the collection of the artist (which originally sold at auction in the 1980s), but though from the same collector as other related works, this item is without clear provenance. (The accompanying container is marked that it was lots 449 and 51784 in unnamed auctions; from that perhaps the provenance can be developed.) A unique item of interest to both philatelists and flight historians. Such items are usually only seen once (if that) in a lifetime.

Essay designs for the issue that became Scott #371-3 [1960 Danish Agriculture] by artist Dan Sterup-Hansen, the third place winner in the competition for this stamp issue. The original artwork and large photographic models are only known to exist in the postal museum. The printed essay designs, all 30 Ýre, are only known to exist each in these single colors, on white ungummed paper: Horses Plowing (red), Milking Cows (red-violet; Benfield called it purple), and Planting (blue). They are known to have been printed in horizontal 3-strips containing all three designs per strip. Benfield/NÝrdam numbers: 404/406-E (7a, 8b, 9c). Their reference indicates that these essays are "often difficult to find", with a rarity factor of S3 (valued $50 to $100 per item). To say "often difficult to find" is an understatement in my opinion; other than the pictures in the book, these are the only examples or pictures of examples that I can recall seeing in 46 years. Given the rarity and topicality, they certainly deserve a valuation at the top end of the scale. From an artistic standpoint, these are very free-flowing and modern for stamp designs of the era.
