Norway: Essays: 1943 Edvard Grieg  
All items are available for viewing on approval. I have a constantly changing stock of Norwegian and all Scandinavian essays, proofs, reprints, and test stamps. Most of such items sell before they get to the website or price lists. What are you seeking?
One actual essay design for the 1943 Edvard Grieg issue (Scott #255-8) is known and available to collectors. This is of a small-size stamp design with the same lettering appearance as the issued stamp, but a much different portrait. The essays are only recorded imperforate on extremely smooth yellowish-white paper, in red and black.The printing quality is superior, giving the impression of an engraved stamp, but the essays are surface printed, not engraved.

There is another another Grieg stamp design often sold as an essay; very similar to the brownish red 20 Ýre value, but without country name or denomination. This item is NOT an essay. It is a Test Stamp issued later, and is highly collectable as such. [In stock, but not yet on the website; please inquire if interested.]
