6 [1873 4 skilling, Perforation 12.5] Used with XF centering and huge, even margins all around, but with small, hidden faults (faint crease at lower left corner; crease and small tear at upper right corner). This is a terrific-looking stamp and it really does require a 10x magnifier to see the problems. The very thin paper used for these stamps results in most examples having such problems. This example has the usual rough perforations that are so typical of the Perf 12.5 stamps -- that is normal and expected, not a defect. The cancellation is very light, but it is an almost perfect, upright REYKJAVIK cancellation of the proper type for this stamp, used in the correct time period. Strong color and nice white paper -- an outstanding looking example! This 4 skilling Perforation 12.5 stamp is among the rarest regularly issued stamps from Iceland. It is usually one of the last regularly issued Icelandic stamps obtained by most collectors. This example is much, much nicer than is usually seen! Facit 2024 value with a normal cancellation is SEK 19,000 and Scott 2024 value is $2250. A very attractive example of a greatly under-appreciated stamp that is missing from virtually all collections.

The stamp is beautiful, with wonderful color and freshness on the front, and otherwise has not been hinged. Otherwise NH of this centering would be $185.

139, AFA #106x [1921 "10 aur." surcharge on 5 aur green King Christian X] Mint, very lightly hinged, with VF centering. AFA Specialized 2016 (most recent edition) lists this plate variety on the underlying stamp as #86x, but they forgot to list the plate variety with the overprint (I have notified the editors). The variety is from plate position 9, and also exists on some other stamps in the issue, consists of broken green background lines on either side of the portrait, roughly in line with the mouth, resulting in white areas. This variety is rarely offered and is quite difficult to find with nice centering.

Neat, partial (H)AFNARJF(ORDUR) postal cancellation; it is unusual to find this stamp canceled outside of Reykjavik. By comparison, the same stamp with F-VF centering would be $425! A key stamp, with a postal (not revenue) cancellation, that is missing from most Used Iceland collections.

221 Line Perf 14x14, irregular corners (F#245C4) [1940 10 aur green Fish, Line Perforation 14 x 14 (1941) ] NEVER HINGED BLOCK OF FOUR with XF-Superb centering. Wonderfully fresh example with great color, perfect line perforations, and pristine gum. This "C4" line perforation was made by separate perforator tool strokes to make the horizontal vs vertical perforations, thus the four corner teeth are random in shape and appearance. Furthermore the perforator tool was worn out with bent hole-punches, thus the thickness of the teeth / spacing between the holes can vary. This line-perforated stamp is hard to find with nice centering. Examples this nice are rarely offered -- and blocks are rarely seen -- but then any examples of this perforation are very scarce! A key stamp in the Fish set; very hard to find NH and well centered.

221 Line Perf 14x14, irregular corners (F#245C4) [1940 10 aur green Fish, Line Perforation 14 x 14 (1941) ] NEVER HINGED with XF-Superb centering. Wonderfully fresh example with great color, perfect line perforations, and pristine gum. This "C4" line perforation was made by separate perforator tool strokes to make the horizontal vs vertical perforations, thus the four corner teeth are random in shape and appearance. Furthermore the perforator tool was worn out with bent hole-punches, thus the thickness of the teeth / spacing between the holes can vary. This line-perforated stamp is hard to find with nice centering. Examples this nice are rarely offered, but then any examples of this perforation are very scarce! A key stamp in the Fish set; very hard to find NH and well centered.

20, Facit #19, AFA #17 INVERTED FRAME [1892 100 aur brown and lilac Numeral, Perforation 14 x 13.5] Mint, moderately hinged, with F-VF centering. [The Bicolored Numeral stamps of Iceland do have frame differences (the quantity of vertical background lines broken by the upper right or lower left corner triangles that identify the frames as upright or inverted. By chance the quantities are even; the plate consisted of 51 upright vs 49 inverted frame stamps, thus there is no price premium. For details, see this article with illustrations on my website. However, this difference is unknown to most collectors; if the difference was more obvious and better known, the extant quantity of stamps would be divided in half, with each half being assigned different catalog numbers -- half as many stamps (of each number) would result in higher catalog values / prices for each of the two types.] This example is very fresh and bright, with nice centering, and perfect perforations. Priced just as a basic stamp with this centering.

Each sheet contained 51 normal frames and 49 inverted frames. For details, see this article with illustrations on my website. This is a wonderful example of "fun fact" kind of item that few people even know exists! Priced just as a basic NH stamp with this centering.

O4, Facit #TJ4a [1882 3 aur Official, perforation 14 x 13.5, First Printing: Dull Orange-Yellow under daylight and Dark Brown under long-wave UV light, Thin Paper] Used with Superb centering and neat, light, correct corner cancellation. Perfect perforations and nice color. PLATE VARIETY: The top frameline has a large break about one-third from the left side. This variety is not shown in the handbook by Regeling, thus the plate could have been damaged and quickly repaired or the break could have appeared very late in the first printing (and repaired before the second printing), thus not known to Regeling. Facit 2022 value for normal quality examples of the first printing is SEK 1500! That does not take into account the variety; though this variety is not listed by AFA, it is more prominent than most that are listed and those have a value premium of about 65%!

H3E likely exists with any of the three panes upright or inverted. I have only had this one example of a H3E booklet in 49 years. From the Garson collection. [The most complete and specialized listing of Icelandic booklets was in the Facit 2006 catalog.] The Facit value of this H3E booklet was SEK 24,000 in 2006. The current 2022 Facit (with less specialized listings) still shows a value of SEK 24,000 (approximately $2400 in February 2023)! That being said, it does not seem that the Facit editors have actually reviewed this pricing in many years. While the missing corner of one 5 aur stamp is a defect, other than that problem, the booklet and the stamps are wonderfully fresh. The stamps in the booklet are scarce in NH condition; the individual selling prices of the stamps totals right at $1000!

Facit #H5G Panes respectively, Fish 5 aur mounted by top margin, 10 aur green bottom margin, 25 aur red top margin. : 1940 complete booklet with Light Blue cover; Cover type G (front cover with words "um alt land" and NOT "um allt land"). 5 aur Brown Fish (Scott #219c [1939-40]) pane of five; 10 aur Green Fish (Scott #221b) pane of five, and 25 aur RED Fish (Scott #224b) pane of five. H5G exists with any of the three panes mounted by top or bottom margins. I have only had this one or two examples of a H5G booklet in 49 years, but likely that the other I may have had would have had different top/bottom margin mounting combinations. From the Garson collection. [The most complete and specialized listing of Icelandic booklets was in the Facit 2006 catalog.] The Facit value of this booklet was 24,000 in 2006. In 2006, the six listed versions of the H5 booklet ranged in Facit value from SEK 12,000 to 18,000, with only this H5G being at the SEK 18,000 level. The current 2022 Facit catalog (with less specialized listings) does not break out the pricing of the six possible H5 versions; instead it shows only a single value of SEK 18,000 now -- which would be for the most common version which was valued at SEK 12,000 back in 2006. From that we can extrapolate that a properly updated Facit value for H5G would probably be in the range of SEK 22,000 to 24,000 now (approximately $2200 to $2400 February 2023). The Facit editors do not seem to have actually reviewed this pricing in many years. The booklet is in VF condition and the stamps in the booklet have centering that ranges from F-VF to VF -- all the stamps are wonderfully fresh. The stamps in the booklet are scarce in NH condition; the individual selling prices of the stamps totals $1865 for F-VF centering (even though some of them are better than F-VF)! The value of the contents fully supports the current H5 "generic" Facit value, to say nothing of the extrapolated current H5G Facit value. This intact booklet early booklet is extremely scarce and is rarely offered in any condition.

UNLISTED booklet similar to Facit #H4 EXCEPT CONTAINING 5 aur OVERPRINT ON 35 aur Jochumsson. : 1939-1940 complete booklet with Light Blue cover; Cover type G (front cover with words "um alt land" and NOT "um allt land"). 5 aur OVERPRINT on 35 aur Blue Jochumsson (Scott #212) pane of five -- NO ICELANDIC BOOKLET IS LISTED AS INCLUDING THIS STAMP!; 10 aur Ultramarine (NOT Gray Blue) and Carmine Flag (Scott #228) pane of five, and 25 aur RED Fish LINE PERFORATION VARIETY (Scott #224 variety, Facit #248C4) pane of five with plate number "2" in margin (one stamp with small natural paper inclusion). The 5 aur and 10 aur panes are upright (mounted by left margins) and the 25 aur pane is inverted (mounted by bottom margin). Prior to this, I had only previously seen one Icelandic booklet from this era with a plate number showing in the margin as it is on this 25 aur pane. This is the only example of any booklet containing the 5-on-35 aur Jochumsson stamp that is known to me. One of the definitions of what makes a booklet a "different major catalog number" is the stamp or combination of stamps in the booklet. By that definition, this booklet should have its own major catalog number in Facit. I have reported this booklet to the Facit editors. This booklet is from the Garson collection. [The most complete and specialized listing of Icelandic booklets was in the Facit 2006 catalog. This booklet was not listed in that edition, nor in any later edition.] Assuming that this booklet is not unique (but it is certainly very rare) -- though it is possible that it is unique -- I estimate a catalog value should be in the range of SEK 35,000 ($3500) based on the high values of the other 1939-1946 booklets which are known to exist in at least modest quantities. However, if this booklet is unique, the value could easily be much higher. The booklet is in PRISTINE condition and the stamps in the booklet have centering that ranges from VF to XF -- all the stamps are wonderfully fresh. The 25 aur RED stamps variety with the scarce line perforation in the booklet are quite scarce in NH condition, selling for $269 each; the total of all the individual selling prices is over $1345.

Facit #H7H/I VARIETY. Panes: Fish 5 aur mounted by top margin, 10 aur gray bottom margin, 25 aur brown-red bottom. : 1945 complete booklet with Dark Greenish Blue BACK COVER and Light Blue FRONT COVER. This booklet has COVER TYPE COMBINATION: Front Cover Type H and Back Cover Type one of I through L (as noted below, there are Facit listings problems in I-K vs L). The front cover has "SOFFIUBUD" 29 mm wide; words "um allt land" and NOT "um alt land". The inside front cover (side 2) has the star between two loops and NOT just a star. Those are all characteristics of Cover Type H. However, the back cover has: above "Simar: 4690-5690" and below "Simar:5690-4690". To add to the fun, the front cover is dark greenish blue (which Facit says is the color for Cover Type "I") and the back cover is light blue (or blue) which Facit says blue is the color for Cover Type "H". [At the same time, to confuse things further, there appears to be either a textual typo or an image error in Facit 2006 for the back cover of Cover Types I-K vs Type L (in regard to the "Simar" features).] I have previously encountered cover variations (combinations of front and back covers), in addition to the interleaf combination variations footnoted by Facit. I do not know if this booklet is a scarcer, unlisted variation, or if this is just showing up an error in Facit. Regardless, the Facit listings need further work. 5 aur Brown Fish (Scott #219 [1941-46]) pane of five; 10 aur GRAY Fish (Scott #222) pane of five, and 25 aur BROWN-RED Fish (Scott #225) pane of five with PLATE NUMBER "2" in margin. Prior to this, I had only previously seen one Icelandic booklet from this era with a plate number showing in the margin as it is on this 25 aur pane. This booklet likely exists with any of the three panes mounted by top or bottom margins. From the Garson collection. [The most complete and specialized listing of Icelandic booklets was in the Facit 2006 catalog.] Facit only lists this combination of stamps as being in Cover Types H and I (and M and N, but this is neither of those). The 2006 Facit values of H7H and H7I are SEK 7500 and 7000 respectively (Approximately $750 and $700 in February 2023) -- and in 2022 Facit generically valued the most common H7 variation at SEK 7500. This example, not quite fitting either of those definitions may be a scarcer, more valuable unlisted variety. The Facit editors do not seem to have actually reviewed this pricing in many years. The booklet is in PRISTINE condition and the stamps in the booklet have centering that ranges from F-VF to VF -- all the stamps are wonderfully fresh. The intact booklet early booklet is scarce as listed by Facit, but this unusual combination of cover types and colors is likely to be much scarcer as the people hand-making the booklet were likely in a short-duration transition between old and new supplies of front and back covers.

This exact variety is not AFA-listed, but it could be a precursor stage to the listed variety AFA 69x (AFA value DKK 300) in which the corner is further rounded and the D is open on the right. Attractive and interesting.

1 [1873 2 skilling] Mint, without gum (as usual), with Average centering (fairly typical) and nice overall appearance. The perforations are just into the lower part of the left frame line, but otherwise very close to being Fine. The horizontal perforations, especially at bottom, are rougher than the side perforations as normal and expected for this issue. Other than a slightly rounded lower left corner perforation, this stamp is without defects and is a nice example of the first Icelandic stamp, with great color and fresh appearance. Facit 2022 value (with gum) is SEK 9500.

2 [1873 4 skilling, Perforation 14 x 13.5] Mint, without gum (as usual), with Fine centering, but color either faded or just very light. This stamp does have thin paper as expected, but the thin paper "is on the thickest side of thin" that I have observed on the skilling stamps. As a result, the perforations are much better (cleaner and more complete) than usual. A nice looking stamp at a very low price.

7 [1873 16 skilling, Perforation 12.5] Used with VF centering and neat, clear, upright, serif-style genuine and proper (REYK)JAVIK cancellation. [This specific cancellation type is genuine and proper on this stamp; this is NOT a type of cancel that was used after the stamps were no longer value for postage.] A beautiful example of a stamp that is quite scarce in properly used condition, but it has two tiny margin tears and one tiny margin thin speck. The intense color is terrific and the perforations are much better and cleaner than usually found on this stamp. Without the quality problems, this example would fetch $675! Most collections of Used Icelandic stamps are either missing this stamp or contain an example canceled after the period of validity. An attractive example offered at a very attractive price! Facit 2022 value SEK 5,500 and Scott 2022 value $650.

3 INVERTED WATERMARK [1873 8 skilling] Mint with original gum, very modestly hinged, with F-VF centering and three huge margins. Also with AFA-listed plate variety AFA #3y "cut off lower right corner" from position 43 in the plate of 25 cliches which was struck four times to print a full sheet; thus this variety is from sheet positions 43, 48, 93, and 98. Only 1600 stamps with this plate variety originally existed, but only a few sheets (quantity unknown, but scarce) had an inverted watermark, thus possibly only a few dozen of this variety originally existed with inverted watermark -- and far fewer still remain in existence today. Perfect perforations (quite remarkable for the 8 sk stamp!) with fresh color and great overall appearance. An attractive example of a scarce watermark variety. Even without taking into consideration the scarcity of the inverted watermark and/or the plate variety, this is a remarkably nice example of the 8 skilling stamp. The Facit 2022 value is SEK 4,000 for Mint Hinged with inverted watermark, plus the value of the plate variety (the AFA premium is about 25% for the plate variety alone).

170 COIL, Facit #194C4R Light Greenish-tinged Gray Blurred Printing; Perf 13.75 x 13.75 Line, Cut top/bot, Cut sides (vended). [1935 5 aur Gullfoss Waterfall] Used VF example showing straight-cuts at top and bottom (from making the coil strips) and straight cuts on the sides (from dispensing from a coil vending machine). Very light cancellation. An exceptionally nice example. As of 8/2022, I have only recorded coils in this color as having cut tops and bottoms (from making the rolls) and cut sides (from a vending machine). [The coils, perforations differences, and color / paper differences of the Gulfoss stamps are not well known. They are scarce and many were discarded over the years by collectors who thought they were just defective (trimmed) stamps. Generally, the Gulfoss stamps had up to four perforation types: C1 and C2 are 14 x 13.75 two types of comb, C3 is 14 x 13.5 comb, and C4 is 13.75 x 13.75 line perf. As a comparison / measuring tool, the 60, 65, and 75 denominations only exist in C4 (13.75 x 13.75 line perf); in some cases, line up those up against the perfs of other stamps, rather than using a gauge. There are various further color shades (sometimes also with tell-tale difference in impression clarity) and paper color differences that are not listed in the catalogs. Coil rolls of 500 stamps were made by gluing together (using the trimmed side margin of one sheet to attach to the back of the next sheet) sheets of stamps at the sides (vertical edges) of the stamps and then either tearing or cutting the strips apart along the top and bottom margins. The tearing vs cutting seems to be (?) consistently applied depending upon which batch (color shade) of stamps, etc. Stamps were both dispensed from vending machines (thus have cut perforation tips at the sides) or torn off rolls by postal clerks (thus have torn perforation tips at the sides); I am not sure if vended strips were possible (instead of just singles), resulting in a mix of cut and torn sides.] Per Facit, the 5 aur COILS exist with C2 and C4 perforations, with the C4 having at least two color shades (per JSA). Sort out those C2 and C4 perfs by matching with the top and bottom of the 60, 65, and 75 denominations (if NOT a match to top and bottom to the 60, 65, and 75, then you have a C2 perf in this case). The 5 aur C2 coils seem to be much scarcer than Facit suggests; as of 8/2022 I have not definitively recorded any examples, but I may have had them in the past and did not know it. Facit states that entire printing of C4 was made into coils, however I have recorded multiple examples of each of two colors of the 5 aur with C4 perforations that have been made into coils, thus there were at least two C4 printings (and thus I cannot be 100% sure that no 5 aur sheet examples exist with C4 perforations).

13a, Facit #14a (Print 1: Light Violet, Blurred Print on Thin Paper) [1876 20 aur light violet Numeral] Used with VF centering and appearance, but with minor faults: tiny pinhole, ironed out filing crease, and rounded upper left corner perf. Neat and correct AKURE(YRI) town cancellation. This printing was on such thin paper that examples are usually defective. This stamp is missing from most Iceland collections. Offered at a very low price. Facit 2022 value SEK 4400.

42 [1902 40 aur Christian IX] Used with Superb centering and substantially complete F┴SKRUđSFJÍRđUR (Type B1b) 29 August 1918 bridge-style cancellation. While this is not a "scarce" cancellation, it is seldom seen so complete on individual small-size stamps. Also because this cancel device started in use in 1906, it is quite unusual on the Christian IX stamps. The cancel strike is sideways, but this is the only way that the full town name and full date could possibly fit on the stamp! An outstanding example of stamp that can be quite hard to find in such nice quality and also very hard to find with nice small town cancellations.

44B [1904 5 kr Christian IX] Used with Fine centering and small part of corner cancellation leaving the portrait "face free". Great color, perfect perforations, and excellent overall appearance. However, there is not enough of the cancellation present to guarantee that it is a proper cancellation, thus instead of pricing at the normal Used Fine price of $145, I have priced it at the lower Mint Hinged price. Still a very nice looking example.

44B [1904 5 kr Christian IX] Used with VF centering, however with worn appearance and color somewhat faded. While I think that this stamp may have been genuinely used on a high-value (registered, insured, or parcel) letter leaving the country, the cancellation either confuses the issue or makes the stamp much more rare. The cancellation is a type (with "9-4 E" hours indicator) that was not used in Iceland in this era. It appears to be a Danish postmark with a "K." at the bottom (for the "K°benhavn K" post office). That is typical type of Danish cancellation found on Icelandic "fishing boat mail" - mail that was either mailed at sea, or was accepted at the dock in Iceland right before leaving port, and was handed over to the Danish post office upon arrival at a port in Denmark. What makes this example especially interesting in that regard is that a Danish cancellation on this high denomination stamp is "quite rare". However, without more research, I cannot vouch for the cancellation. If it were not worn and faded, and if it had a certificate, it would be valued at multiple times the normal Used value.

Though year date not showing, very nice strike for this type of item -- and VERY UNUSUAL on one of the provisional surcharges. An ordinary example of this stamp with this centering would be $24, but "99%" of those are the usual Reykjavik or other larger-town cancellations. While the catalog value of the postmark is not high, it is surprisingly seldom seen.

11 PERFORATION ERROR, Facit #12d variety, AFA #8.7y variety, Clear Carmine Red, Thick Paper [1876 10 aur Numeral, Perforation 14 x 13.5 (1895 printing)] This perforation "error" variety -- blind perforation in 5th horizontal hole -- is one of four possible varieties resulting from missing horizontal row pins in the perforating machine -- they are constant varieties on the 7th (1895) printing of this stamp (and the 1895 printings of the 3 and 6 aur stamps). Each of the different perforation errors affects that vertical column in the sheet. Additionally this example has one of the several versions of the AFA #8y plate variety: "Chunk missing from upper right frame line". Similar, but different versions of this variety exist in the sheet; at least two different exist with this particular perforation error. Mint with F-VF centering with only modest hinging, but small thin spot in hinge area. Very attractive appearance with brilliant color. Mint examples of the perforation errors can be quite hard to find. A normal example of this mint stamp, without the thin spot and with this centering would be $204 -- the perforation errors are much scarcer.

Wonderful, intense, ultramarine color and perfect perforations. This ultramarine printing is quite scarce with any gum at all. The Facit 2022 value for with gum is SEK 7000! To further emphasize the point, Facit does not even attempt to price never hinged. A wonderful looking example. If an example with this centering had full gum (hinged), it would fetch $590.

This must have come from a recently broken block. Such freshness and overall quality is rarely offered. Facit 2024 value for NH is SEK 3000 (about $300 6/2023), but it is very hard to find an example!

66 INVERTED WATERMARK [1902 40 aur Perf 14 x 13.5 with Black I GILDI overprint] NEVER HINGED with Fine centering. Wonderfully fresh and bright. This is one of the scarcest inverted watermarks of the non-rarity I GILDI overprints -- I have not recorded having an example in the last 25 years and I do not recall having an example in the 24 years before that. Neither Facit nor the AFA Specialized list a price for this inverted watermark stamp in NH condition -- Facit does list NH values for other inverted watermark stamps in I GILDI overprints (AFA does not provide any NH prices for any inverted watermark stamps). Facit 2022 value for HINGED is SEK 1600 [1/2022 $190] and AFA Specialized 2016 (most recent edition) value for Hinged is DKK 1200 [1/2022 $205]. In Facit, other I GILDI stamps with inverted watermarks have a 40% to 150% premium value! This stamp is very scarce with inverted watermark and "rare" thus in NH condition.

2, AFA 2y SMALL CLICHE [1873 4 skilling, Perf 14 x 13.5] Mint, with full original gum (unusual), extremely lightly hinged, with XF centering and brilliant color. This is a wonderful example of a little-known, but major variety. The height of the design is only about 19 mm instead of 20 mm -- this is been listed by AFA with little fanfare, but it is not listed by Scott and is otherwise seldom mentioned in the literature... despite this small cliche appearing in 8 positions in the sheet! Regardless of the variety, this is an exceptional well-centered and large-margined example, that looks NH without a magnifying glass. The perforations are absolutely perfect -- extremely unusual for an example of the Skilling stamps. The combination of the quality and the variety make this a truly exceptional "GEM" example that defies any catalog valuation. AFA Specialized 1996 (most recent edition) value for the mint variety in ordinary quality is DKK 2000 = $330 [12/2021], compared to DKK 1200 for the normal type. However an example such as this -- the finest I have seen of this variety in 48 years -- commands a significant premium. Only 8000 of this variety originally existed -- surely only a small fraction of those remain today -- and likely not more than a few dozen of the original quantity of the variety could have looked this nice -- perhaps this is the finest remaining example? A superlative stamp for a superlative collection.

2 [1873 4 skilling, Perf 14 x 13.5] Used with a perfectly centered REYKJAVIK cancellation, but that was applied after the end of the skilling currency period, i.e. "after-canceled". The cancellation is a genuine postmark type, just applied after the period of validity of the skilling stamps. Other than some of the relative angles of the lettering, this cancellation Type (Facit) G1b looks almost identical to the correct-period cancellation Type D2 -- see the Facit Classic for illustrations of the difference. Fine centering, strong color, and with extremely nice perforations for a skilling issue (the horizontal perforations are almost always rough). Accompanied by an 1998 APS certificate stating "Used, genuine in all respects" -- not mentioning the cancellation (I was not an APS examiner of this stamp at that time). An unusually well-centered strike of this cancellation, but appropriately offered at a very low price. (For comparison, Scott 2022 value for a correctly canceled Used stamp is $900.)

15 Golden Yellow [1882 3 aur, Small 3, Perf 14 x 13.5] Mint with VF centering and large margins, but no gum and with a small crease that could perhaps be flattened out. This is a complicated and controversial stamp color; it was the subject of an extensive article, by expert Lasse Nielsen, in one of the Danish journals around 2013-2017; I cannot find my copy of the article at this moment. For many years Facit did not list this color, but they do now as Facit #8v3. Facit describes it as being on "thick soft white paper from Printing 2 or 3, not yet determined which". I agree with that except that in my opinion, the paper is "medium (but close to thin), very crisp (not soft), and it is white." AFA lists this color as #12.3b, being from Printing 3b and describes the paper as "medium". Regardless, this is an extremely scarce stamp. Facit and AFA only price it (as they always do) with gum, but the three Mint examples I have recorded having in the last 25 years have all been without gum; I do not think I have had an example with gum in my 48-year career. Facit 2022 value is SEK 8000 = $960 [12/2021] and AFA Specialized 2016 (most recent edition) value is DKK 6000 = $1020 [12/2021]. Well centered examples of this color are "rare". Despite the small crease, which is hard to see, this is by far the best looking example of this stamp that I have had in 48 years. It is really stunning with wonderful centering, brilliant color, and perfect perforations. An exceptional stamp that will help to build an exceptional collection.

15 PERFORATION ERROR, Facit #8e variety, AFA #12.5 variety, Brownish Orange, Thick Paper [1882 3 aur Numeral, Perf 14 x 13.5 (1895 printing)] This perforation "error" variety -- blind perforation in 5th horizontal hole -- is one of four possible varieties resulting from missing horizontal row pins in the perforating machine -- they are constant varieties on the 5th (1895) printing of this stamp (and the 1895 printings of the 6 and 10 aur stamps). Each of the different perforation errors affects that vertical column in the sheet. Mint with F-VF centering. There is some gum loss where a hinge was removed (and the gum went with the hinge), but it does not have a thin and does not show any defect in watermark fluid. Very attractive appearance. Mint examples of the perforation errors can be quite hard to find. A normal example of this mint stamp would be $72 -- the perforation errors are much scarcer.

11 PERFORATION ERROR, Facit #12d variety, AFA #8.7y variety, Clear Carmine Red, Thick Paper [1876 10 aur Numeral, Perf 14 x 13.5 (1895 printing)] This perforation "error" variety -- blind perforation in 5th horizontal hole -- is one of four possible varieties resulting from missing horizontal row pins in the perforating machine -- they are constant varieties on the 7th (1895) printing of this stamp (and the 1895 printings of the 3 and 6 aur stamps). Each of the different perforation errors affects that vertical column in the sheet. Additionally this example has one of the several versions of the AFA #8y plate variety: "Chunk missing from upper right frame line". Similar, but different versions of this variety exist in the sheet; at least two different exist with this particular perforation error. Mint with VF centering with only modest hinging. Very attractive appearance -- exceptionally well-centered example. Mint examples of the perforation errors can be quite hard to find. A normal example of this mint stamp would be $270 -- the perforation errors are much scarcer.

12 Grayish Brown, Facit #13d [1876 16 aur brown Numeral, perforation 14 x 13.5, 1891 printing] Mint, lightly hinged, with SUPERB centering. Excellent color, perfect centering, and perfect perforations. [This 1891 grayish brown "unclean color" printing can be hard to distinguish from the 1886 yellowish brown printing (color names per the catalogs). When directly compared, the 1891 color does look a bit grayish (and sometimes muddy), but in my opinion it looks more yellowish than the 1886 printing. If I had selected the color names, I would have called the 1891 yellowish brown and the 1886 either brown or reddish brown.] Such nice looking Mint examples of the 16 aur are quite hard to find. This must be the nicest Mint example of this stamp that I have had in 47 years!

The stamp centering is typical for the 50 aur. This smaller town cancel is quite unusual on the early Official stamps. Provenance: from the Roger A. Swanson collection, from of a page of six 50 aur stamps sold by Northland Auctions in 1995; subsequently in the Frederick H. Campbell collection, prior to my purchasing the group. Very pretty!

O9 [1895 50 aur Official, perforation 14 x 13.5] Used with Fine centering and with bold "(FRA) ISLAND" DANISH INCOMING SHIP MAIL CANCELLATION. Very attractive, but with expertly repaired and reperforated top margin. The stamp centering, clearing the perforations, is better than usual for the 50 aur. While this type of cancellation is commonly seen on regular Icelandic stamps of this era, Danish incoming ship mail cancellations are rare on Icelandic Official stamps. Early Official mail leaving the country is extremely rare; Official stamps were likely only accepted on mail going as far as Denmark. I cannot recall having, in the last 48 years, any examples of an Official stamp this early bearing such a cancellation. Provenance: from the Roger A. Swanson collection, from of a page of six 50 aur stamps sold by Northland Auctions in 1995; subsequently in the Frederick H. Campbell collection, prior to my purchasing the group. The scarcity of this cancellation on this stamp is demonstrated by a) that somebody would so expertly repair such a stamp and b) a high-level collector and prominent international exhibitor such as Swanson would include it in his collection.

O27b INVERTED OVERPRINT [10 aur perforation 14 x 13.5, INVERTED "I GILDI" overprint, Official] Mint, original gum, lightly hinged, with Fine centering. Wonderful color and very fresh. Accompanied by 1985 Lasse Nielsen color photo certificate (despite the age of the certificate this one is still perfectly reliable). This unassuming stamp is extremely difficult to find in nice quality, even with a normal overprint, and is missing from virtually all collections.

O2a IMPERFORATE Facit TJ2v1 [1873 8 skilling lilac Official, Imperforate] Mint, no gum, with large margins and Superb appearance. This imperforate has a watermark (which distinguishes it from being a proof); it was issued with gum, but this example is without gum. Huge margins and strong color (for this stamp), however, there is a curious horizontal line in the bottom third -- mostly only visible under 10x magnification -- that is either a paper inclusion, a removed pen mark (this stamp is not known used), or a repaired paper break. As a dealer, I have to assume the worst, but it is sure a nice looking example of a very scarce stamp! Facit 2020 value SEK 5000!

3 [1873 8 skilling] "Canceled", Average centering (perforations just barely touch the frame line). The cancellation appears to be a fake cancel, but if not at best it is after-canceled. A lightly toned spot in right margin, but otherwise without defects. Typical (for the 1873 issue) rougher perforations on top and bottom. A presentable example at a very low price. Scott 2021 value $325 for mint and $1150 for properly used (which this is not).

7 [1873 16 skilling, Perforation 12.5] Used with F-VF+ centering and neat, light, but absolutely completely genuine and proper cancellation. A beautiful example of a stamp that is quite scarce in properly used condition, but it has two defects: a repaired perforation tooth in the top margin and an almost invisible short crease ending in a tiny tear at the center-right margin. Without the quality problems, this example would fetch $675! Most collections of Used Icelandic stamps are either missing this stamp or contain an example canceled after the period of validity. An attractive example offered at a very attractive price! Facit 2020 value SEK 5,500 and Scott 2021 value $625.

11, Facit #12d (Print 7) Thick Paper, with Perforation Variety. [1876 10 aur, Perf 14 x 13.5, 1895 printing] Mint with original gum, VF centering! Catalog listed perforation "error": blind hole 4 on top and bottom; on this denomination, only exists on the 1895 printing. On this example, the rough perforation also shows that the perforator was really wearing out by this time. Also with unlisted plate variety: Bottom frame line with dent at center and thinning to the left corner. A very handsome mint example of this workhorse stamp of which supplies were exhausted in normal postal use.

172 COIL [1931 35 aur Gulfoss (Golden Waterfall)] NH F-VF coil single WITH splice on the left side of the stamp (viewed from the front). These coils were made from sheet stamps and have straight-cut perfs at top and bottom. The sheet margins were trimmed down and used to connect one sheet to the next, prior to slicing into coil rolls. Singles of the 35 aur coil are not uncommon; they were dispensed from the machines as singles thus pair or larger units (with or without splices) are quite uncommon. Very fresh and attractive. A normal NH F-VF coil single would be priced at $39.

172 COIL [1931 35 aur Gulfoss (Golden Waterfall)] USED VF coil single WITH splice on the left side of the stamp (viewed from the front). These coils were made from sheet stamps and have straight-cut perfs at top and bottom. The sheet margins were trimmed down and used to connect one sheet to the next, prior to slicing into coil rolls. Singles of the 35 aur coil are not uncommon; they were dispensed from the machines as singles thus pair or larger units (with or without splices) are quite uncommon. However, any USED spliced examples are "rare" because the splice would normally have fallen off when soaked. This example seems to have been carefully steamed off (much gum remains) paper and thus the splice survived. (If only the collector had left it on the cover...) Very fresh and attractive with a very light cancellation. This is the only USED, SPLICED off-cover example I can recall having in 46 years (and extremely few either mint splices or on-cover spliced examples). A Used VF (VF is scarce) coil single without splice would be priced at $59. This is "rare" used still with splice!

Exists from positions 5, 8, 9, 20, 55, 58, 59, and 70, thus there are small differences between them: THIS EXAMPLE SHOWS A SHORT, THICK LINE ABOVE THE R of RD.

35 variety, Facit #64v, AFA #36x [1902 4 aur Christian IX] NH VF-XF with the frame variety "AUP instead of AUR" from positions 95 in the sheet. This variety is the result of damage to the cliche, not because the engraver made a P instead of an R. However, any variety that changes the text of a stamp is of intense interest to collectors. This example is wonderfully fresh and bright. Facit 2020 value is SEK 1500 and AFA 2016 Specialized value is DKK 800. Seldom offered, in fact I have only had a couple examples of this variety in 46 years (and no others this nice!) which causes me to think the cliche damage probably occurred later in the printing process. I believe that this variety is significantly undervalued in the catalogs.
