11, 18 [1865 2 sk Crown and Scepter, Perf 13 x 12.5; 1870 4 skilling Bicolor, Perf 14 x 13.5] (VF, F-VF) on 4 February [1871 per the contents] folded cover with at least partial business accounts contents. RAILWAY cancellation 3-ring 216 and dated side postmark "J.JERNB.P.SP." (Jydske Jernbane Post Spedition). To Haderslev (Slesvig / Schleswig), with GERMAN "WAMDRUP / [date] / FLENSBURG" railway transit postmark on reverse (VAMDRUP, in southern Denmark). Also with two German "AUSG." (outbound) transit postmarks. [Though the German railway postmark was applied to mail from within Denmark to Schleswig/Slesvig, I have been unable to find any listings of this postmark -- or of similar types/uses -- in either the Danish or Schleswig postmark literature. That seems like a glaring omission!] According to "DAKA Danmark 1999" the 6 skilling postage rate from the Danish Kingdom to Schleswig was in effect from 16 July 1865 up through the currency change after the end of 1874 -- and in 1999 assigned a value of DKK 1800. The stamps and overall cover are in excellent condition. A very nice and colorful example of mixed issues -- seldom seen.

19 Print 3 (Facit 23c) and 18 Print 9 (Facit 22f) [1870 8 sk and 4 sk Bicolors, Perf 14 x 13.5] (Fine appearance but with typical small defects for such covers) on October 12 ca.1873 cover to the U.S. The cover has contents, a letter dated 27 August 1873; the letter is from the same sender as the cover, but may or may not be the correct letter for this cover (note the date mismatch, but perhaps mailing was just delayed). There are only a very limited number of significant correspondences in this time period from Denmark to the U.S.; this letter is not from a correspondence that I recognize or recall having previously encountered. Addressed to "Mr. Christian Bernhardt, in care of Mr. T.F. Morse, in Lima Center, Washtenaw County, State Michigan, North Amerika". The stamps have #211 3-ring numeral cancellations which correspond with the dated side postmark of København Nørrebro, with "KIOBENHAVN N.B." serif-style. As of the 1996 København cancellation catalog (by Bendix), This cancellation was only recorded in use through 14 November 1873, thus strongly indicating that this is an 1873 cover. A clear boxed "Franco" (paid) handstamp on front and a boxed "Via Tydskland" (via Germany) handstamp on reverse. U.S. Chicago transit handstamp indicating "PAID ALL" on front, on its way to Michigan. Despite the handstamp indicating that the letter was sent via Germany, DAKA 1999 Klassisk Danmark indicates that the 12 sk rate was via Danish mail and that the 12 sk rate ran to the end of 1874 (thus this has to be either 1873 or 1874 use). Daka 1999 assigns a catalog value of DKK 3200 (approx US$500 2/9/2022) for this destination, rate, and stamp combination. The stamp printings were confirmed by Bicolor expertizer Lasse Nielsen, with his ID on the reverse of the cover. Skilling Bicolor covers to the U.S. are quite scarce (and often in rough condition because of the difficult transit, but also because the recipients were often living in difficult circumstances). Before the approximately 17,000 Danes who immigrated to Utah in 1850 to join the LDS community (mail to them is rare), there were extremely few Danish immigrants; just a few dozen people per year, thus extant covers are rare. After 1850 the annual quantity increased, but it was not until 1882 that large numbers of Danes annually immigrated to the U.S. Thus pre-1882 mail from Denmark to immigrants in North America is quite scarce. A handsome cover appropriately showing the "furrow lines" resulting from its difficult life.

19 Print 4 (Facit 23d) and 16 Print 9 (Facit 20i) [1870 8 sk and 2 sk Bicolors, Perf 14 x 13.5] (F-VF and Fine centered respectively) on 15 December 1874 PARCEL LETTER, with a parcel tracking label, from "KIOBENHAVN" with #1 3-ring cancellations and dated side postmark, to Lerchenborg near (just south of) Kallundborg. As was the case for much of Europe, "parcel letters" then (and later "parcel cards") accompanied parcels; a matching numbered label was affixed to the parcel; the postage stamps were placed on the envelope or card rather than on the parcel. The 12 skilling franking pays the rate for a single parcel weighing 2 pund (yes "pund"); 1 April 1871 through 31 December 1874 (6 sk for the basic parcel fee and 2 sk for each pund). The envelope has been expertly repaired, but this example is much nicer looking than most parcel letters from this early period. The 2 skilling Print 9 was put in use in October 1874 -- the 8 skilling Print 4 in July 1874 -- thus, with the postal rate ending at the end of 1874, this is a) an 1874 use and b) could only have been used thus for no more than three months! The stamp printings were confirmed by Bicolor expertizer Lasse Nielsen, with his ID on the reverse of the cover. The Printing 4 is the scarcest printing of the 8 skilling stamps; the AFA Specialized 2016 value is DKK 2800 for a single used stamp and DKK 3500 for the most common on-cover use (approx US$450 and US$560 respectively). A very nice example with fresh stamp colors and overall excellent appearance.

16 Print 4b (Light Gray and Light Greenish Blue) (Facit 20d) [1870 2 sk Bicolor, Perf 14 x 13.5] (Fine) on November 1873 folded PRINTED MATTER rate circular (a business announcement) from KØBENHAVN to NYKØBING, with receiver postmark on reverse. The stamp printing was confirmed by Bicolor expertizer Lasse Nielsen, with his ID on one of the back flaps of the folded cover. Very fresh and attractive; all elements in excellent quality.

Denmark #238E [1939 25 øre brown Caravel Type II] pair and two singles (VF, but some "hidden" creasing from envelope) on 16 June 1943 airmail cover (with Danish-style light blue airmail label) to Harald Yden of Skäralid, Sweden. (information about the Yden family can be found on the web.) Mailed by Rigmor Pedersen from FUGLEFJORD with two clean and nice strikes of the small starless cancellation (Daka #06.02). Dated THORSHAVN side cancellation. The cover bears a RARE, and very neatly struck, violet handstamp "O.A.T." (Onward Air Transmission). [OAT markings were applied to indicate that the mail should be carried onward by air, if possible, even if previous part(s) of carriage had not been by air. The handstamp was usually only applied to the top letter in a bundle, thus their scarcity and great interest to collectors. Daka states in regard to mail to/from the Faroes: "relatively rare on cover".] This cover is also very unusual in that it is not censored, thus makes the routing to Sweden difficult to determine. However, Daka illustrates this exact style of O.A.T. marking, either in red or purple, as known on mail exchange with the United States -- with a valuation of DKK 8000 (around $1300). on philatelic covers, but this is certainly "genuine ordinary postal use", part of larger correspondence (I have other covers from the correspondence). [Daka also lists O.A.T. use to Sweden with an oval marking at DKK 10,000 (around $1650).] The 100 øre postage properly pays the 20 øre letter rate and the 80 øre airmail surcharge. The description by a previous owner stated that the letter was sent by a Danish seaman interned in the Faroes. However, Rigmor (the sender) is typically a female name and I cannot find any record of any internments in the Faroes of Danish seamen. I pass this information along for further research, but I do not claim this to be from an interned seaman. An exceptional cover from a very chaotic period in Faroese postal history.

Denmark #238D x3, 230 [1940 20 øre red Caravel Type II; 1938 10 øre violet Wavy Lines] (some creasing from envelope and gum soaks) on undated airmail cover (with Danish-style light blue airmail label) to Harald Yden of Skäralid, Sweden. (Information about the Yden family can be found on the web.) Mailed by Rigmor Pedersen from FUGLEFJORD with two clean and nice strikes of the small starless cancellation (Daka #06.02). The cover does not bear the usual Thorshavn dated side cancellation, thus no dating is present. The total 70 øre franking puzzles me; the surface rate was 20 øre, leaving 50 for airmail, but I am not aware of an airmail surcharge that low in this era. The cover bears a PC 90 British censor tape (examiner 7485). That examiner number is not found in the Bermuda censor lists, thus suggesting that this censorship was done in the UK. With no evidence of transit at Bermuda or the U.S., and without German censorship, I believe that the only available routes to Sweden would have been via the "blockade mail" -- secret and very dangerous night time flights between Scotland and Sweden, over the North Sea and over German-occupied Norway; OR via UNDERCOVER MAIL through Lisbon, Portugal. [A 9 April 1943 cover from the same correspondence(!), from Sweden to Faroe, with the same examiner number, and a transit postmark of Lisbon is known. Also an unrelated 1941 cover from England to the Faroes with the same examiner number.] The description by a previous owner stated that the letter was sent by a Danish seaman interned in the Faroes. However, Rigmor (the sender) is typically a female name and I cannot find any record of any internments in the Faroes of Danish seamen. I pass this information along for further research, but I do not claim this to be from an interned seaman. An exceptional cover from a very chaotic period in Faroese postal history. Hopefully more can be determined (from the censorship or possibly other clues) about the date and the routing.

Denmark #238D 4-strip + single [1940 20 øre red Caravel Type II] (some creasing from envelope and gum soaks) on 4 December 1942 airmail cover (with Danish-style dark blue airmail label) to Harald Yden of Skäralid, Sweden. (Information about the Yden family can be found on the web.) Mailed by Rigmor Pedersen from FUGLEFJORD with three strikes of the small starless cancellation (Daka #06.02). Dated THORSHAVN side cancellation. The 100 øre postage properly pays the 20 øre letter rate and the 80 øre airmail surcharge. The cover bears a PC 90 British censor tape (examiner "5,409"). That examiner number is not found in the Bermuda censor lists, thus suggesting that this censorship was done in the UK.

Denmark #282 [1942 20 øre red Christian X] (top perfs worn) on 27 July 1943 cover to Harald Yden of Skäralid, Sweden. (Information about the Yden family can be found on the web.) Mailed by Rigmor Pedersen from FUGLEFJORD with blurred strike of the small starless cancellation (Daka #06.02). Dated THORSHAVN side cancellation. The 20 øre postage properly pays the 20 øre Nordic letter rate. However, "Luftpost" [Airmail] was written on the envelope -- after mailing, this was crossed out in blue crayon and also officially marked out by a handstamp of two red bars. The red bars indicate either "not paid for airmail" (as in this case) or "airmail not possible". The red bars marking is extremely scarce from the Faroes. The cover bears a PC 90 British censor tape (examiner "5,409"). That examiner number is not found in the Bermuda censor lists, thus suggesting that this censorship was done in the UK. With no evidence of transit at Bermuda or the U.S., and without German censorship, I believe that the only available routes to Sweden would have been via the "blockade mail" -- secret and very dangerous night time flights between Scotland and Sweden, over the North Sea and over German-occupied Norway; OR via UNDERCOVER MAIL through Lisbon, Portugal. Especially interesting, but only anecdotal without more markings, other proof, or similar examples, is that the cover is a) vertically folded down the center and b) on the reverse bears the handwritten note "Sendt til Hgör" [?] 29/8". This is typical of folded envelopes that are known to have been sent via UNDERCOVER MAIL, fully prepared for mailing as this is, and enclosed in an outer envelope (in this case would have likely been via Portugal or via New York). In such a case, the outer envelope would have been opened in Portugal or New York, this cover marked with the red bars, and this cover sent on its way from neutral Portugal to Neutral Sweden. However, to my knowledge, there was no surface mail connection (which is all the 20 øre paid for) between Portugal and Sweden, thus I am not sure how this would have been handled. From New York to Sweden, it could have been carried to northern Russia and then on to Sweden. The description by a previous owner stated that the letter was sent by a Danish seaman interned in the Faroes. However, Rigmor (the sender) is typically a female name and I cannot find any record of any internments in the Faroes of Danish seamen. I pass this information along for further research, but I do not claim this to be from an interned seaman. An exceptional cover from a very chaotic period in Faroese postal history.

Denmark #282 pair, 224 [1942 20 øre red Christian X; 1938 5 øre wine-red Wavy Lines] (F-VF) on 7 May 1945 [the date in the website image is hard to read, but I am confident of it based on close examination] cover to Harald Yden of Skäralid, Sweden. (Information about the Yden family can be found on the web.) Mailed by Rigmor Pedersen from FUGLEFJORD with three strikes of the small starless cancellation (Daka #06.02). THORSHAVN dated side cancellation. The 45 øre postage properly (per Daka 2017) pays the total 45 øre air letter rate to Denmark; the Nordic rate was typically the same, so very likely correct to Sweden. Bears a British-style airmail label that was typical of this short post-war period. Germany capitulated on 5 May 1945. Normal airmail service from the Faroes, via the UK, resumed on 7 May 1945. THIS APPEARS TO BE A FIRST DAY OF RESUMPTION OF NORMAL MAIL SERVICE FROM THE FAROES TO THE REST OF THE WORLD. The cover bears the later-style (repeated text and crown) PC 90 British censor tape (examiner 3680). Censorship in this region continued for a few months after the war. This cover is particularly important as it represents the FIRST DAY OF THE CLOSING CHAPTER OF THE IMPACT OF WWII ON FAROE MAIL. The description by a previous owner stated that the letter was sent by a Danish seaman interned in the Faroes. However, Rigmor (the sender) is typically a female name and I cannot find any record of any internments in the Faroes of Danish seamen. I pass this information along for further research, but I do not claim this to be from an interned seaman. An exceptional cover from a very chaotic period in Faroese postal history.

(Information about the Yden family can be found on the web.) Mailed by Rigmor Pedersen from FUGLEFJORD with 5 nice strikes of the small starless cancellation (Daka #06.02). Dated THORSHAVN side cancellation. The 100 øre postage properly pays the 20 øre letter rate and the 80 øre airmail surcharge. Light blue Danish-style airmail label. The cover bears a PC 90 British censor tape (examiner 6803; style "51/2191. D.P.").

Slesvig: 7, 8, 9 [25 pf orange, 35 pf brown, 40 pf violet; Zone 2, without overprints] (Fine, F-VF, VF) total franking 100 pf, on 12 March 1920 REGISTERED, EXPRESS cover from "FLENSBURG / *2*" to Hamburg, Germany, with receiving postmark on reverse. For postal rate purposes, Germany was considered "domestic, not local" (and not foreign). Through May 5, 1920, 100 pf exactly paid the domestic letter rate to 20 grams; the registration fee was 30 pf; the express fee was 50. Fresh and attractive, with a very colorful combination of stamps.

Slesvig: 14 [10 mk; Zone 2, without overprints] (Fine) on 15 March 1920 REGISTERED small-size cover from "GLÜCKSBURG / *(OSTSEE)a*" to Kiel, Germany. Without receiving postmark on reverse, but top back flap missing, so the postmark may have been there. While this is a philatelic use, there is no practical way that this stamp could have been properly postally used on a reasonable sized cover! Most use of the high denominations were for parcel mail and very large, heavy registered packages. This stamp on a postally used parcel card or package front would be hundreds of dollars. Very attractive and seldom offered as a solo franking on any type of cover.

17 (three other stamps missing) [1871 3 Skilling Bicolor] (Fine with a couple short perfs) on 1871-1874 cover (envelope) from KJØBENHAVN to PHILADELPHIA, U.S., via NEW YORK. Unfortunately a misguided early collector has neatly removed three other stamps from the cover. Otherwise a very neat and attractive cover with clear cancellations (year dates were not included in the typical cancellations of the era) with a Danish boxed "Via Tydskland" and Philadelphia receiver on the reverse, and a Danish boxed "Franco" [fully paid], "KJØBENHAVN KB" side cancellation, and red "NEW YORK / PAID ALL" on the front. Two insignificant mounting stains on the reverse. Wonderful handwriting including the notation "fr. [by] Danish - U.S.A. Postbag" that I have not previously encountered. This cover is not from a correspondence that I have previously encountered and appears to be a one-off or limited correspondence with Frank A. Gray in Philadelphia -- Gray is known to be an early stamp collector (see https://siegelauctions.com/exhibits/Belasco.pdf). The Scott 2021 value for the most common color of #17 is $110. The most basic use on cover would fetch around $200. However, a cover to the U.S. with the all the stamps present would typically be $500 and on up to $1000.

"NEPA / HORSENS 1936" SET OF TWO 10-BLOCKS (each w/five pairs) on pair of registered 6 September 1936 airmail flight covers to the U.S. As part of the stamp show, a special first flight between Horsens and København was arranged with a special handstamped cachet in red. These covers bear that cachet, a separate airmail receiving postmark, and the special stamp show NEPA cancellations. Sent by registered mail, with airmail within Europe (and then supposedly sea mail to the U.S.), via Hamburg, Germany. Additional postage added to each to bring the total postage of each up to 75 øre. Stamp show overprint in RED in blank gutter above Scott #246 and in VIOLET above Scott #248 [1935 5 and 10 øre H.C. Andersen] The gutter results from the special sheet layout used to make booklet panes. The "overprint" pictures a white horse in front of a tree, the symbol for the city of Horsens, Denmark. The special booklet-making sheets from this stamp issue could be purchased by the public; the stamp show organizers printed their overprint, by typography / letterpress without official cooperation. A very popular, unusual in philately, and sought-after item. Though these NEPA items are seen from time to time, they are uncommon. A recent small find of these blocks seems to indicate that the overprinting plate printed only five at a time; each of the five positions has small, but unique, characteristics. I have not found any examples that do not match one of these five positions. In 46 years, I have seen only two sets of these 10-blocks on covers. NH 10-blocks are scarce and sell for $270/set; however Used are much, much scarcer!

The unusual FOUR COLOR FRANKING is remarkably unusual and rather spectacular, but even scarcer is that the cover was posted by a Danish naval officer using his official stationery, on board the Danish H.M.S. FYLLA (patrol ship 1920-1933) while the ship was visiting Reykjavik. Identifiable Danish naval mail, even domestic use, is extremely unusual in my experience; I have not previously seen or had such from Danish naval ship mailed from Iceland. Correct 20 aur letter rate franking to Denmark. A wonderful item in multiple respects!

Stampless cover, unpaid, with "6" Postage Due, with 12 October 1856 STUBBEKJÖBING one-ring cancellations. No contents. Very ornate addressing and with bold red crayon "6" postage due marking. While unpaid letters were still accepted for mailing at this time, the practice had become uncommon and by now recipients were typically expecting the sender to pay the postage. This small town was the hometown of early Lutheran missionary Hans Egede, well known for his work in Greenland (he is pictured on Danish and Greenlandic stamps). Very attractive.

The ultramarine colors are seldom seen on cover. Also, early official covers with year-dated postmarks are quite unusual. The cover is sealed with an undamaged, embossed yellow-orange PAPER WAFER, reading "[crown] / FREDERIKSBORG / AMTSTUE" -- intact paper sealing wafers are quite unusual. A very nice and unusual cover!

1799 (May 13) pre-stamp folded cover with complete contents, a business letter to a wine merchant in Bordeaux, France. Datelined from Flensburg, Denmark (Schleswig-Holstein), and as typical transiting HAMBURG where a wonderfully clear "DÆNNEMARK" handstamp was applied (thus acknowledging Denmark as the origin country). From one of the few business archives that survived multiple wars. Examples of such use from Schleswig-Holstein is scarcer and very much sought after as Flensburg is now part of Germany. Excellent quality and very attractive for an item 220 years old!

This combination of stamps to make the 14 skilling rate is listed by DAKA 1999 at DKK 2800 (approx $475 then and now). Wonderfully bright colors. Very attractive.

18 [1870 4 skilling Bicolor] (F-VF+) on 20 September (1871 archival date) folded cover (no contents), with #72 (Thisted) 3-ring numeral cancel, with THISTED serif-style side postmark. To AALBORG with sharp receiver and "J. TVÆRB. P.SP.B." railway transit -- this latter postmark is both remarkably clearly struck (for this) and is in my experience significantly scarcer than most. A very nice railway cover.

Slesvig: 1920 Mint VF patriotic picture post card with very interesting artwork showing Danish coat of arms being covered over and German text Should Schleswig be torn up? Have we not been brothers for 1000 years...". The address side includes a reminder to vote on 14 March 1920, thus this is in regard to Zone 2 (southern Schleswig). I cannot recall previously seeing this card.

J15 [1922 10 øre Green Postage Due] (VF) tied by 26 July 1922 KJØBENHAVN cancellation on 24 July picture post card posted aboard the Swedish naval ship H.M.S. SVERIGE (apparently near Båstad, Sweden, at the time). There appears to have been a stamp affixed and canceled at lower right, but it must have quickly come off; there is a Swedish octagonal-boxed "T." handstamp, a blue manuscript Danish "10", and the Danish postage due stamp. If there had been a stamp that had fallen off, this should not have been rated as postage due.

Ha!). Swedish boxed "T 10 õre" (somewhat unusual) handstamp, blue manuscript Danish "10", and the Danish postage due stamp. The correct postage rate was 20 öre, thus the shortage was doubled. There was no return address, thus it could not be returned to sender for additional payment.

This solo use is somewhat scarce because this 3 kg postal rate did not start until 1 January 1919, but was again increased on 5 October 1919, however, this Wine-Red 50 øre was replaced with the Wine-Red and Black bicolored 50 øre on 2 January 1919!

The postal rate for a 5 kg parcel was 35; though this adressebrev does not bear any notations in this regard, it must have been a COD (cash on delivery; postopkrævning) parcel with 10-50 kroner payment due, which would explain the other 25 øre franking. The 50 øre stamp is quite scarce on cover.
