(24) Facit/NK #24IIbv WITHOUT PERIOD (Type 9) [1877 5 Ýre Shaded Posthorn, Horizontal Watermark, BLACKISH BLUE] Used Average with pen-cross cancellation. This color is very scarce, undervalued in all the catalogs. Furthermore, though the catalogs give a 1.5 to 2 times multiple for the Type 9 (without period after FRIM) stamps, they are in much, much greater demand than that multiple suggests. Lower right corner perf rounded, but easily compensated for by an obvious plate variety "lower right frame line corner open". Very scarce stamp in several respects.

Horizontal Watermark, Thick Paper, Intense Ultramarine [1877 5 Ýre Shaded Posthorn; Plate III; 1878-onward] Used with Fine centering and neat 1882 Christiania local post cancel. This color is one of those not really listed by the catalogs. Much more intense (and attractive) than the usual color shades.

24, Facit #24IIIcc, NK #24IIIb-Opg., with period.

This example shows the re-engraving exceptionally well and the color is lighter / greener and more coarse / grainy than usually seen. An outstanding example.

28 [1877 25 Ýre Shaded Posthorn] Used with VF centering and remarkably strong color for this stamp. 98% of examples are very pale (it is not that most are faded, they were just very pale from the start). Darkly colored examples such as this are quite scarce. The cancellation is not clear, but it is fairly light. The perforations are excellent for this issue (the cancellation is partly on the perforations, but all perforations are present). Attractive and unusual example.

29 Deep Blue Green, Clean Print [1878 35 Ýre Shaded Posthorn] Used with Superb centering but extremely faint, nearly invisible, ironed out corner crease. With Superb 2-ring (no bridge) CHRISTIANIA 6 October 1887 cancellation. This dark color with a clean print is not listed in the catalogs; it is much scarcer than the typical range of color shades. As beautiful an example as one could hope to find.
