Q1-5 [1949-50 First Issue Postal Bus "Busspaket", Parcel Post] NH VF/XF Matched Set of straight edge on bottom. [These were issued only in booklet panes of six, thus exist only with straight edge on top, or on bottom, or on top/right, or on bottom/right. One can search through quite a few mixed sets to put together a nicely centered matched set like this. Very fresh.

Q6 [1952 5 mk Postal Bus "Busspaket", Parcel Post] NH VF/F-VF GROUP OF 3 DIFFERENT PRINTINGS. None of the catalogs properly list the different printings (colors, papers, gums) of the 1952-1958 Postal Bus stamps -- they were in use until the end of 1962 when replaced 1.1.1963 with stamps in the new currency -- there were multiple printings, but little about them seems to have been published. Some of these must be much scarcer than others! I believe the stamps with shiny gum and/or grayish or yellowish paper came earlier, and the stamps with duller white gum and/or bright white paper came later. This group consists of three distinct colors: Violetish Carmine (shiny clear gum, grayish tinged white paper), Bright Reddish Carmine (slightly less shiny slightly yellowish gum, very slightly yellowish paper), and Light Carmine (dull white gum, bright white paper). In 46 years, I have not seen any offerings of different printings.

Q8 [1952 50 mk Postal Bus "Busspaket", Parcel Post] NH F-VF GROUP OF 2 DIFFERENT PRINTINGS. None of the catalogs properly list the different printings (colors, papers, gums) of the 1952-1958 Postal Bus stamps -- they were in use until the end of 1962 when replaced 1.1.1963 with stamps in the new currency -- there were multiple printings, but little about them seems to have been published. Some of these must be much scarcer than others! I believe the stamps with shiny gum and/or grayish or yellowish paper came earlier, and the stamps with duller white gum and/or bright white paper came later. This group consists of two distinct colors: Darker Blue (shiny clear gum, grayish tinged white paper) and Lighter Blue (partially dull white gum, bright white paper). The former stamp shows the cut perforations from the booklet making process; this is normal. In 46 years, I have not seen any offerings of different printings.

Q10-13 Non-Fluorescent (Facit #BF10-13v1) [1963 Postal Bus "Busspaket", Parcel Post] NH XF-Superb complete set of the non-fluorescent papers.

Q11-13 Yellow-Fluorescent (Facit #BF11-13v3) [1963 Postal Bus "Busspaket", Parcel Post] NH XF-Superb complete set of the 3 yellow-fluorescent papers. [The .05 mk exists only on "TeP" non-fluorescent paper. The other three also exist on "HaP" white fluorescent paper and on this "EGpQ" yellow fluorescent paper. This is a coated (shiny, thicker) paper with dull white gum. The paper type references are from Facit.] Even though this was printed later than the other two paper types, and supposedly with ever-improving quality control, it is hard to find in such nicely centered examples. (Normal centered individual prices total $30.95.)

Q14-17 [1981 Postal Bus "Bussfrakt", Parcel Post] NH VF complete set of booklet panes with binding tab at bottom, thus "inverted" panes (I believe that I have also seen panes the binding tab at top). Though the catalogs do not state a premium value for the or booklets, they have become quite scarce and very difficult to find.

Q14 [1981 .50 mk Postal Bus "Bussfrakt", Parcel Post] Used Superb with Superbly centered small-town HARTOLA 7 January 1985 cancellation. The last day of use was 9 January, thus we have to assume this cancel is philatelic. However, I do not recall previously having any small-town canceled examples of any stamps of this set! Any examples of these stamps canceled in the correct time period are very scarce.
