1 Used VF (four even, medium margins) Medium Blue, very thin paper. Plate position B8 (rounded upper right corner and elongated lower right leaf). This may be an early stage of the lower right leaf elongation; this shows the leaf plus a separate white sliver. Position B8 is also interesting because it is one of the positions included in the so-called "manuscript retouches" mentioned in the 1955 monograph, etc., but which were later discredited. For the full story, see Norway Number One, Second Edition (pages 50-51). Neat, virtually complete 12-bar (slightly scarcer) cancellation. Very attractive.

1 DOUBLE FOOT [1855 4 sk Lion, position D40: doubling of right foot of lion (on our left)] Used Fine with four clear margins. Close margin on left near bottom, but it does not touch; otherwise small margins all around. Extremely light circular town cancellation, so light that at first glance you might think it is an uncanceled stamp. The stamp color is a lighter-than-typical blue. The impression is extremely crisp and clear. There are no defects or repairs. Accompanied by a Roger Calves (well-known French / worldwide expert) 1992 photo certificate and by a 2018 Jay Smith photo color certificate with lifetime guarantee. Lightly canceled examples of Norway #1 are quite unusual; I have never before seen such a lightly canceled example of the Double Foot variety. While one would certainly wish for larger margins, the small margins are more than made up for by the clarity of the impression and the lightness of the postmark which allows the variety to be perfectly visible. This major variety is one of the touchstones of Norwegian philately; the stamp that every young Norwegian collector hopes to someday own. Facit 2018 value "from SEK 20,000".

1, 2-5, 15 [1855 Number One, 1856-57 Oscars, 1867 8 Skill 8 Coat of Arms] The COMPLETE SET of six 1924 OFFICIAL REPRINTS. Mint VF still affixed to the original 1924 Handbook page, as they were all issued. These 1924 reprints have color shades different from the even scarcer 1914 reprints. The 1924 #1 is Deep Blackish Blue (instead of Dark Greenish Blue). The 1924 Oscar colors are: Dull Yellowish Orange (instead of Dark/Bright Orange); Dark Silvery Gray (instead of Greenish Light Gray); Blackish Blue (instead of slightly greenish Dark Blue); Dark Brownish Red (instead of Light Brownish Red). The 1924 #15 is slightly orangish Red (instead of Carmine). In total, I have only had four or five complete sets of these (not all members of the sets at the same time) in 41 years. This is certainly among the nicest looking that I have had.
