AFA Iceland (and Denmark) Specialized 2016 Catalog This is the AFA Specialized catalog that is issued only every few years (last in 2008). However, the last edition to include Iceland was 21 years ago in 1995 (and an updated English translation in 1997). As it relates to Iceland this catalog is updated and revised, with mostly replaced images (now in color). To a very high degree, the 1997 translation can still be used with this new 2016 edition. Otherwise this is also the "bible" for Danish collectors and also includes specialized listings for Faroe, DWI, Slesvig, and Greenland. 752 pages. Hardbound. This is a must-have reference.

Highly recommended item!
AFA Iceland Specialized Catalog 1997 (AFA, SPF, Smith; 1997) Translated, revised, and completely updated listings from the 1995 (Danish) Specialized Catalog. In my opinion, the best Iceland catalog for issues to 1940. Stamps, plate varieties, cover and postal history pricing, postal rates, early cancels, etc. Completely in English. Though this was published in 1997, it is still (2013) the best available on the subject. Sturdy coil bound; can be opened all the way around and lays completely flat.
