Iceland: Bargains: Bargain Stamps - Scott #1-7: 1873 Skilling Issues  
These bargain-priced stamps are attractive, but most have hidden flaws. You can save a tremendous amount of money when you add such stamps to your collection. Each stamp is one of a kind, so please let me know if I may substitute a different example (that looks as good or better, for the same cost) if the stamp you order has sold. If you have any doubts, all are available for approval viewing. If you are seeking stamps of this quality and price level from any of the Scandinavian countries, just send along your want list -- I will be happy to send bargains on approval. Scott numbers have been used unless otherwise stated.

3 Used with Average centering and a couple faults (tiny sealed tear, perfs improved on left). It bears both a pen cancel (unusual) and a small portion of what appears to be a correct serif-style cancel. It is a real #3 used in the proper time period. Facit 2006 value for Used Fine is SEK 10,000 = $1400!

6 [1873 4 Skilling, Perforation 12.5] Mint, without gum, with VF centering, but with significant damages including small tears, thin spot, and significantly faded color (faded to rose instead of the normal carmine). There are some missing perforations, but that is fairly typical for this stamp. Though this is only "space filler" quality, it is a very, very scarce stamp that is on nearly every want list. Valued in the 2018 Facit Catalog as Mint SEK 12,500 = approx US$1625 (1/18)!! While we certainly wish it were a nicer example, it is the real stamp but just has had a rough life.
