Scott #1 [1919 2 øre overprint on 5 øre Christian X] Used XF on 19 January 1919 cover with additional 5 øre stamp (F-VF) as usual. Neat, light THORSHAVN cancellation; sent locally in Thorshavn (to "her": here). The cover is roughly addressed to Ester Pilgaard and appears to be from "H" (on reverse). The handwriting is a bit smudged, but a bit on the front and on the reverse there appears to be additional blood smudges. Whether the blood is from fish or whales or animals or the writer himself is beyond my capability, however I have seen this occur a few times before on early Faroe covers. There is absolutely nothing "wrong" with the cover, but the smudged handwriting places the value of the cover the same as the value of the Used XF #1 stamp and is thus priced at only the value of the XF single stamp. Accompanied by Jay Smith certificate with lifetime guarantee, however, in case the purchaser wishes me to remove the single stamp from the cover, the certificate will not be prepared until the time of purchase.

From the Faroe office of Det Danske Petroleums Aktieselskab (The Danish Petroleum Corporation). Very neat and attractive. This stamp issue had a rather short period of use in Denmark and especially in the Faroes.
