2012 Queen Blackprint Faroe Version [Scott #572: 40th Anniversary of Reign Queen Margrethe II] of the engraved portions of the stamp design. 3-Way joint issue of Denmark, Faroe, and Greenland. While the engraving of the blackprint is the same for the three countries, the penciled notations are different. All three are signed by the artist Mikael Melbye and the engraver Martin Mörck. Denmark has X/1500 and DK notation. Faroe with X/700 notation. Greenland with only the signatures. Only 700 of the Faroe version were issued. Scarce; I have not noticed any other dealer offering this!

2013 Faroese Boat. 2013 "The Traditional Faroese Rowing Boat" Souvenir Folder containing the 1) NH souvenir sheet; 2) an imperforate color-print of the offset-printed areas; and 3) an imperforate black-print of the engraved areas. Individually numbered edition of only 3000 -- thus only 3000 each of the two imperforate items can exist! The front cover of the souvenir folder is actually signed by designer Edward Fuglø and engraver Martin Mørck. Text in English and German. This folder is now quite hard to find; this is the only source of the two imperforate items!

2017 "The Seven Swans" Fairy Tale BLACKPRINT of Scott #688a souvenir sheet (containing both stamp designs). Imperforate, NH VF. This stamp issue is designed in a Chinese style by Li Yunzhong and engraved by Martin Mörck. (Some of the Scandinavian post offices have been doing a lot cooperative and training work with Chinese stamp artists and engravers.) Issued in a limited quantity and probably many sold to Chinese collectors. This has interest from Faroe collectors, Mörck collectors, China-related collectors, and collectors of Chinese art, etc.

2018 "Bird Fowling" BLACKPRINT design of the 44 kr stamp of the set, Scott #698. The design pictures birds being caught by net, from a small boat below bird cliffs. Imperforate, NH VF. Engraved by Martin Mörck. Only 1500 printed; they were included in the 2018 Year BOOK, but the post office stated that only 400 examples would be sold separately (i.e. not in the year book). I believe that many collectors missed this issue. In addition to being sought by collectors of Mörck engravings, it is of thematic interest to bird and watercraft collectors.

2019 "Old Watermill" BLACKPRINT design of the 35 kr stamp of the set, Scott #???. These little-known artifacts of Faroe life were already in use in the late 1700s. They were entirely built in the Faroes, except the millstone had to be imported due to lack of the suitable type of rock in the Faroes. They were mostly very small -- this one shows the height of the building is not much more than a man. Imperforate, NH VF. Engraved by Martin Mörck. Only 1500 printed; they were included in the 2019 Year BOOK, but the post office stated that only 400 examples would be sold separately (i.e. not in the year book). I believe that many collectors missed this issue. In addition to being sought by collectors of Mörck engravings, it is also of thematic interest to a varied range of collectors (mills, falling water, architecture, traditional clothing, engineering, etc.).
