Denmark: Labels: Patriotic, Political, and Military Labels  
Labels are issued for many purposes, including commercial advertising and promotion; fundraising (usually then called "seals"); propaganda, publicity, and education; non-governmental payment receipts (example: union dues); and series issued for label collectors. (Post-office issued labels will be considered separately.) In the early part of the 1900s, collecting labels issued in series was very popular, with a few issuers publishing albums (but not in Norway to my knowledge); usually one had to buy a product or visit a store to obtain a label for the album. The term "poster stamps" is often applied to many labels because they are really miniature posters. Labels often look like stamps, but can range from smaller to much larger; from boring and crude to stunning works of art; and from very inexpensive to quite valuable. Some collectors seek labels either for specific thematic appeal or for design elements of the artwork. Norwegian labels, in both overall variety and quantities printed, seem to be few and far between compared to the masses issued in many European countries during the early 1900s. (In Scandinavia, Danish issuers were by far the most prolific, with Swedish issuers well behind and the other countries with many fewer issues. Approvals are available from all Scandinavian countries.) Even the most "common" of labels is usually extremely scarce compared to the postage stamps of the same time period; there are many $5 labels that would be worth $500 if they were postage stamps. It is important to note that, over the years, labels have not received the same level of care usually afforded to postage stamps and thus labels are much more likely to have condition problems. Lesser condition always affects the value, but do not automatically pass up a label for that reason alone; you may never see another example of it.

Danish Legion: Michel #IV picturing Christian Frederik von Schalburg and issued for the Schalburgs Memorial Fund. NH F-VF bottom margin single with the usual slightly irregular perforations. There is a thin in the bottom selvage, well away from and not affecting the stamp. Quoted from a very interesting Wikipedia.org article: von Schalburg was born in Russia to a Danish father and Russian mother of a noble family. Educated in the Cadet Corps of the Tsar; the family fled Russia, to Denmark, during the 1917 Revolution. He became an officer in the Danish Royal Guard, but reported as being "...unstable and ... possibly dangerous". From 1939 von Schalburg headed the youth branch (NSU) of the National Socialist Workers Party of Denmark (DNSAP) [Nazi Party] -- which issued (very sought after) Christmas seals! In 1939 he and a group of NSU members called "bloddrengene" (the blood boys) were among the Danish volunteers in the Finnish Winter War assisting the Finns against the USSR in 1939-40. He was thus not at home when Denmark was occupied by Nazi Germany on 9 April 1940. Despite his national socialist beliefs he was deeply distressed that Denmark had surrendered almost without fighting. In September 1940, von Schalburg joined the Waffen-SS and served with 5th SS Panzergrenadier Division Wiking [Viking] as a Hauptsturmführer (Captain). In February 1941, von Schalburg suggested to his friend, head of DNSAP Frits Clausen, the formation of a Danish SS unit, "Regiment Dannebrog", to be commanded by himself. During Operation Barbarossa von Schalburg served on the divisional staff of Division Wiking [Viking]. He was awarded the Iron Cross of 1st and 2nd class while serving in Division Wiking [Viking]. On 27 February 1942 von Schalburg arrived at Frikorps Danmark in Treskau [Posen-Treskau; SS training facility in town of Poznan, western Poland] and on March 1 he was given command of the corps now ranked Sturmbannführer (Major). On 8 May 1942 von Schalburg was flown by Junkers Ju 52 with parts of the corps into the Demyansk Pocket [encirclement of German troops by the Red Army around Demyansk (Demjansk), south of Leningrad, during the Second World War on the Eastern Front]. On 2 June 1942 von Schalburg initiated the first offensive operation of Frikorps Danmark. In an attempt to monitor the progress of the battle, von Schalburg advanced towards the front line, but stepped on a mine and was moments later killed by shrapnel from a Russian artillery shell. Philatelically, von Schalburg has significant connections to several different areas: Volunteer forces fighting in Finland against the Russians; SS Viking Division; DNSAP (Danish Nazi Party) and its Christmas seals; Danish Legion activities both in Denmark and on the Eastern Front. There are two label designs, each cataloged by Michel in NH condition at 700 Euro = $875 [7/2010]. Both designs are extremely scarce in nice quality, but this one is the most sought after. This is only the second time in 37 years that I have been able to offer this item.
