43, Facit #43vm2, NK #39Y Vertical Watermark (in NK watermark position 6) [1882 20 øre Brown, Unshaded Posthorn, 21 mm Frame, Vertical Wtmk] Mint Fine-centered 6-BLOCK with FIVE STAMPS NEVER HINGED (top center stamp lightly hinged). Provenance: From the Norm Gary collection (identified by Norm Gary as plate positions 36-38/46-48), then the Jay Smith stock, then the David Carnahan collection, and now the Jay Smith stock again. This is a very scarce multiple! Facit 2022 Classic prices NH singles at SEK 4500 EACH, Hinged singles at SEK 1300; and an all-hinged FOUR-block at SEK 9,000 (or a 1.73 multiplier of four Hinged singles to a block). NK 2018 uses a block multiplier of 2.777 for this stamp and records only TWO unused 6-blocks (total for both vertical and horizontal watermark; hinging status not reported) as well as 7 larger unused units. The total Facit value for the six singles in this block is SEK 23,800 and as a block it can be extrapolated to a value in the neighborhood of SEK 40,000. An extraordinary and important Mint (mostly NH) multiple from the 21 mm Posthorn issue. Such multiples are seldom offered, typically only once every one or two generations. An extraordinary item at a very reasonable price.

This cancel on this stamp is scarce -- from 1930-1931 this stamp was only sold at Nordkap and Oslo, and then through 1935, this stamp was only being sold at a few additional locations: Bergen, Trondheim, Hammerfest, and on board the Hurtigruten Bergen - Kirkenes ships. Pre-1936 uses at other locations are seldom seen as the stamp would have to be brought in by the sender.

Group of four stamps with PARTIAL 4-RING NUMERAL CANCELLATIONS. Because this type of postmark was used mostly in very small places, such as remote farms, country stores, remote seasonal tourist hotels, and on ships, etc., even examples with incomplete numbers are seldom found (even in completely unsorted used stamps of the era). Sometimes, using various clues, the partial numbers can be deciphered. This group consists of stamps from the 1890s to 1930: Scott #50 (defective), #51 (F-VF), #86 (VF), #150 (crease). Whether or not you can decipher any of these, they are remarkably scarce.

123 [1927 35 øre olive-brown Standing Lion, typographed] NEVER HINGED with VF centering, but with a couple blunted perforations (typical for the printings of this stamp that had "pointed tooth" perforations). The 35 øre olive-brown is the scarcest (Mint, Hinged or NH) stamp in this definitive issue -- it is a key stamp missing from many collections, especially in NH condition. There were ten printings of this stamp resulting in several obvious differences in color and gum. This example is a scarcer Dark Brownish Olive with Yellowish Crackly Gum. Such nice examples are quite hard to find. Facit 2022 NH value SEK 3200 [about $380 4/2022].

J7 Dull Lilac, Facit #L13b, NK #P13b [1922 4 øre Postage Due (1927 printing)] Used with XF centering, with 1929 town cancellation, probably Oslo. This printing /color was made in 1927 but use of postage due stamps ended before these were distributed, however they were sold to collectors. Canceled examples are known -- and are sought after -- but they did not serve postage due use. Examples with 1920s year dates are scarce.

Faint soiling in upper right corner, light bend (not a crease), and with a tiny corner crease (only visible from the reverse) in the upper left corner. Despite that description, this is a very attractive example. This is a very scarce stamp in uncanceled condition. If one could find it, an example of this centering with original gum would cost at least $500.

(19 variety), Facit #19ab, NK #19Ic [1872 4 sk Posthorn, Dull Violet on Thin Grayish-White Paper (1872)] Used with F-VF+ centering. Only small part of cancellation present, leaving the stamp face-free; on this printing an undated cancellation is not a problem -- supplies of this printing (color and paper) were exhausted long before 1877 when the currency changed (and Mint examples are four times the value of Used, unlike the 1875 printing). The centering of this color is very often only Average or Fine -- this example is much nicer than usual. A very attractive example with much nicer overall appearance than usual for this printing. Quite exceptional. The scarcest printing (color and paper) of all the possibilities.

From a letter that was either uncanceled or was posted aboard a Norwegian ship while in transit to the port city of Hull. While 383 cancellations are not "rare" on Norwegian stamps, strikes this complete are unusual. Nice color and overall quality.

(Scott #40a) Facit/NK #53IVb-v5v6 [1890 10 øre 20 mm Posthorn: Plate IV Bright Red, Horizontal Watermark, Yellowish Paper] MAJOR RARITY: Used F-VF centered 4-BLOCK from sheet positions 89-90/99-100, containing cliche types 1-1/II-III or 1-1/2-3 (depending upon era of catalog publication): Types II/2 and III/3 are POST CARD CLICHES put into emergency use to replace damaged sheet stamp cliches. The post card cliches are about 1 mm taller and have different details of the small "10". According to the keeper of records of these blocks (to whom the existence of this block was previously unknown), this is ONLY THE SECOND RECORDED IVb (red) BLOCK containing these positions/types (both are blocks of four). There are also two known IVc (dull carmine) blocks that contain these positions/types, one block of six and the other a block of ten. My interpretation of private comments suggests that this also may be in the nicest quality of the four recorded blocks containing these post card cliches. There are NO defects. This block is from the Norman Gary collection; he was a long-time specialist in the 20 mm issues. I purchased his entire collection some years ago. I do not know when or where Norm obtained this block (he often made notes, but not in this case). As far as I can determine, it has been out of sight for at least 50 years and maybe as long as 70 years. He may have been the original discoverer of this block. The two bottom stamps, even as singles, are quite scarce, listing at SEK 1000 and 1800 in Facit 2021. However, in a block is quite a different matter. Facit assigns a 233x multiple to the value of a PLAIN used block of four -- blocks of this issue are truly quite scarce. Of course, that multiple does not directly scale up to an equivalent value just because the block contains the rare post card cliches, however, this is apparently ONLY ONE OF TWO KNOWN IVb used blocks containing these very scarce cliches! For provenance, I have left the block mounted on a piece of Norm Gary album page. An extraordinary block, in outstanding quality. This would certainly be an extremely important item in an exhibit or collection of the 20 mm Posthorn stamps.

(Scott #40a) Facit/NK #53IVb [1890 10 øre 20 mm Posthorn: Plate IV Bright Red, Horizontal Watermark, Yellowish Paper] Used F-VF/VF centered 4-BLOCK from sheet positions 56-57/66-67 (per Norman Gary) with cliche types 1-2/1-1 (new cliche numbering). HORTON 9 January 1891 postmarks. NO defects. This block is from the Norman Gary collection; he was a long-time specialist in the 20 mm issues. I purchased his entire collection some years ago. I do not know when or where Norm obtained this block (he often made notes, but not in this case). As far as I can determine, it has been out of sight for at least 50 years and maybe as long as 70 years. He may have been the original discoverer of this block. Though this printing is common as single stamps, blocks are quite scarce. Facit assigns a 233x multiple for the value of a PLAIN used block of four!. Per NK, only 24 used 4-blocks, and 11 larger, of this printing have been recorded -- that is quite a small quantity for a stamp of which millions were printed! A handsome item! Facit 2021 value SEK 3500 (about $420 as of 9/2021).

(Scott #40) Facit/NK #53V [1891 10 øre 20 mm Posthorn: Plate V Dull Carmine] Used SUPERBLY centered 4-BLOCK. Though this plate had only one basic cliche type, Norman Gary identified it as having cliche sub-types 1-2/3-4 (likely old-system numbering, probably superceded) -- ALL FOUR SUB-TYPES IN ONE BLOCK! Three of the stamps have very minor creasing which is really only visible from the reverse. There is a small amount of sensible reinforcing at the right and left. Quite handsome, with CHRISTIANIA 2 November 1891 parcel post postmarks. Norgeskatalogen records only 15 used 4-blocks (and two used 8-blocks) -- that is a tiny quantity considering that nearly 6 million Plate V stamps were printed! However, the presence of all four sub-types in a single block likely puts this block in a completely different category! This block is from the Norman Gary collection; he was a long-time specialist in the 20 mm issues. I purchased his entire collection some years ago. I do not know when or where Norm obtained this block (he often made notes, but not in this case). As far as I can determine, it has been out of sight for at least 50 years and maybe as long as 70 years. He may have been the original discoverer of this block, or at least the significance of containing all four sub-types. Though this printing is common as single stamps, blocks are quite scarce. Facit assigns a 200x multiple for the value of a PLAIN used block of four!. A very beautiful and scarce item! A normal used 4-block is listed by Facit as SEK 6000 (about $720 as of 9/2021) for normal centering -- with Superb centering, this may be the nicest looking known block!

(Scott #44) Facit/NK #54IV [1892 20 øre 20 mm Posthorn: Plate IV Blue] Used SUPERBLY centered 4-BLOCK with neat BERGEN 22 August 1892 cancellations. Very fresh and attractive with strong color. The lower right stamp has a couple shorter perfs at the upper right. Otherwise the block is in perfect condition and has strong perforations. Norgeskatalogen records only 15 used 4-blocks (and seven larger) -- that is a tiny quantity considering that over 2.9 million Plate IV stamps were printed! Due to postal rates at the time, it was uncommon to need/use blocks for postage except perhaps for parcel post, but parcel post uses typically damaged blocks. This block is from the Norman Gary collection; he was a long-time specialist in the 20 mm issues. I purchased his entire collection some years ago. I do not know when or where Norm obtained this block (he often made notes, but not in this case). As far as I can determine, it has been out of sight for at least 50 years and maybe as long as 70 years. He may have been the original discoverer of this block. Though this printing is common as single stamps, blocks are quite scarce. Facit assigns a 300x multiple for the value of a used block of four!. A very beautiful and scarce item! A used 4-block is listed by Facit as SEK 6000 (about $720 as of 9/2021) for normal centering -- with Superb centering, this may be the nicest looking known block!

66 [1907 2 kr King Haakon VII, First Design] Used with Fine centering, but heavily canceled. There is a circular, but heavy, town cancellation (perhaps FOSS?) and also a straight-line postmark of another town. The straight-line cancel looks like some parcel postmarks used in Norway (but not normally on the stamps) and also looks like some Danish parcel postmarks (again, not normally on the stamps) -- this may have been used on a parcel to Denmark. The stamp is in sound quality, but is priced appropriately for the appearance -- otherwise this centering would be $59.

Design similar to and related to Scott #B24 [1941 Norwegian Legion] ca. 1941 ESSAY by Harald Damsleth (who was also the artist of the issued Scott #B24) for the "Norwegian Legion" semi-postal issue. Design in horizontal format; cliche 32 x 17 mm, in orange red, on gummed 105 x 90 mm paper. Original drawing is in the Norwegian Postal Museum. Very seldom offered and in extremely strong demand from collectors of WWII-era material. [The Norwegian Legion was formed by Nazi sympathizers to fight alongside the Nazis against the Allied forces. Originally expected to have a more "glorious" role in Northern and Western Europe, the Legion ended up on the Eastern Front where they suffered greatly. This essay has always been scarce, but I suspect that many people in Norway would rather forget this chapter of Norwegian history, thus they are very seldom offered or displayed.]

17b (Gray Blue) VERTICAL WATERMARK, Facit #17avm [1872 2 skilling gray blue Posthorn] Used F-VF with light, but correct, single-ring cancel with 1873 date, and with red crayon marking, typically from use on a foreign letter which would have received various rate and routing markings. This red marking is not a defect, but it does lower the price from about $490! The gray blue stamp with normal horizontal watermark is already very scarce (Facit SEK 2000) with a cancellation showing use in the proper period. Examples of this vertical watermark variety are extremely scarce with a proper cancel (Facit SEK 3800)! Note that some albums have separate spaces for these vertical vs horizontal watermarks. An excellent example of a seldom-offered stamp.

Intentional Albino Plate Impressions: Lot of 4 items. Starting with the 1962 installation of a new printing press for steel-engraved stamps, Norwegian stamp plate making changed. For certain stamp issues, ranging probably from 1962 (and certainly from 1967) through at least 1987, the sheets of some stamp issues show partial albino engraved impressions of the stamps in the sheet selvage, usually 15-25 mm from the printed stamp design. This is an intentional (but not sure why) artifact of the plate making process and is not an error. Though the albino impressions are hard to see, they are obvious under oblique lighting. I cannot remember ever seeing any dealer offers of such items. They are an interesting aspect of the printing process. Group of four items, all full corner margin pieces: Scott #503 upper left block (1967), 524 upper left block and lower left single (1969), and 911 lower right pair (1987).

1 DOUBLE FOOT [1855 4 sk Lion, position D40: doubling of right foot of lion (on our left)] Used Fine with four clear margins. Close margin on left near bottom, but it does not touch; otherwise small margins all around. Extremely light circular town cancellation, so light that at first glance you might think it is an uncanceled stamp. The stamp color is a lighter-than-typical blue. The impression is extremely crisp and clear. There are no defects or repairs. Accompanied by a Roger Calves (well-known French / worldwide expert) 1992 photo certificate and by a 2018 Jay Smith photo color certificate with lifetime guarantee. Lightly canceled examples of Norway #1 are quite unusual; I have never before seen such a lightly canceled example of the Double Foot variety. While one would certainly wish for larger margins, the small margins are more than made up for by the clarity of the impression and the lightness of the postmark which allows the variety to be perfectly visible. This major variety is one of the touchstones of Norwegian philately; the stamp that every young Norwegian collector hopes to someday own. Facit 2018 value "from SEK 20,000".

Stunning appearance! Priced at only the break-up value of the four stamps! Very low price as a block!

Unusually white paper. The upper left stamp has a small spot on it. NK states that used blocks are scarce (the largest known to exist are 6 and 8), and prices used blocks at 50 (FIFTY) times the value of a single stamp -- and NK is conservative! I have not recorded having another example in 45 years. Without the spot, this very scarce block would certainly fetch at least $400 and perhaps more with this centering.

515/516 ORIGINAL ARTWORK [1968 Aasmund Olavssund VINJE] The original 1967 artwork of the K. Løkke-Sørensen design for this important 1968 stamp issue commemorating the 150th anniversary of the birth of Aasmund Olavssund Vinje. A beautiful 100 x 135 mm painting, in shades of brown, on illustrator board (115 x 145 mm). The design is almost identical to the issued stamps except that the denomination is 90 and is on the left instead of right. There is also a design error in the painting (corrected on the issued stamp) -- the artist used the initials OA instead of AO. Signed by the artist at lower left and dated "67". Vinje was a proponent of the use of the Nynorsk [New Norwegian] (Landsmål) language. This is the second Norwegian stamp issue to use the Nynorsk "NOREG" country name! (The first was the 1951 Arne Garborg issue.) Provenance: This was in the William Benfield collection (so marked on the reverse). Benfield bought it from auctioneer and stamp dealer Irwin Heiman (Metro Stamp Company), February 24, 1973 (see note on back of the Benfield album page; the reference to Memphis was because Benfield lived there at the time). I purchased it from Benfield in the late 1980s (?) as part of the Benfield non-Danish essay-proof collection. I sold it to a member of the Vinje family located in the U.S. (early 1990s?). That family later sold it to a western U.S. stamp dealer who noticed that the description was from me and the dealer sold it to me in July 2014. I then sold it again to collector MXZ in September 2014 and repurchased it from MXZ in September 2017 with other parts of his collection.

Scott #51a, NK #68, Facit #68 [1896 10 øre Carmine, Knudsen Print, Perf 13.5 x 12.5] Mint F-VF+ (bottom two stamps NH) 4-block with perforation "error" Type 1 on the left side stamps (does not add to the cost). This block is from the Norman Gary collection; he marked the four cliche types as 2-3/4-1 (but the standard numbering for the types may have changed since he determined them). Wonderfully fresh and attractive -- nice multiples of this "workhorse" denomination are really quite scarce; these stamps were almost completely used up in normal postal use. Even NH stamps are scarce. The break-up value of this block is about $420 (and I do have clients seeking the single stamps) but I cannot bring myself to break up such a nice and scarce block.

10 [1863 24 skilling Lion] Mint with VF+ centering and great color. Has major plate variety and retouch: Break in left frame line and background by RK, BACKGROUND OBVIOUSLY RETOUCHED in that area. Cliche Type 4. Though the illustration is not great and there is no direct pointer from the illustration to the text, the 1963 Handbook appears to show this retouch as being Plate III, Position 20. It is surprising that such an obvious variety and retouch is not include in the NK listing of varieties on this stamp. There were eight plate settings of this stamp; this retouch only exists in one position of one setting. Extremely scarce.

13 Red Violet Clear Print, Facit #31b, NK #13a [1868 "3 SKILL 3" Lion Coat of Arms] Used Average-Fine centered example of the very scarce Red Violet color with light, fully dated 1871 cancellation. Very fresh appearance with intense color. This stamp is much harder to find than the catalog values suggest. A VF example would be about $350!

(24), Facit #24IIb, NK #24IIb [1878 5 øre Posthorn, Dull Blue, Horizontal Watermark, Not Re-Engraved] Used with Average centering and slight aging. Of the "basic" Facit listings for #24, this is the scarcest printing/color. This printing/color is usually very poorly centered. A F-VF example would be around $175.

41 [1883 12 øre Green] Used Superb looking example with very neat cancellation, but with a couple faults so small that 99% of people would not find them: Two very tiny thin spots near center and another in bottom margin, shorter perforation tooth where cancellation crosses bottom margin, and upper right corner tooth has been creased. This stamp looks terrific -- much, much better than most examples in the market. Without the insignificant problems, this would easily fetch $600+.

2-5 [1856-1857 Oscars] The set of the four 1924 OFFICIAL REPRINTS of the Oscars. Mint VF with partial/disturbed gum still present as a result of extremely careful removal from their page in the 1924 handbook (examples with full, undisturbed gum should not exist in private hands). These 1924 reprints have color shades different from the scarcer 1914 reprints; these 1924 colors are: Dull Yellowish Orange (instead of Dark/Bright Orange); Dark Silvery Gray (instead of Greenish Light Gray); Blackish Blue (instead of slightly greenish Dark Blue); Dark Brownish Red (instead of Light Brownish Red). I have only had three or four sets of these in 40 years and this must be the nicest looking set that I have had, and probably the only one with any gum remaining.

543 INVISIBLE GUM (Facit #928v2, NK #941II Hs5 Paper) [1983 50 kr Olav V, 1991 printing with invisible gum] NH VF. This is an extremely scarce stamp, probably destined to become the scarcest, most valuable post-1960 Norwegian stamp. By coincidence, this new printing was put on sale a few days after King Olav died; net sales were between 100,000 and 120,000 [Facit says "ca. 125,000"], however, most were used for postage. At the time this invisible gum printing was released, extremely few collectors knew that it was a new printing on a new paper (and which was also a new engraving type) or even that any new printing of this stamp had been released! From my personal experience at the time, I can say that the Norwegian "stamp department" staff was not even aware that this stamp was somehow different and/or that this fact was significant to collectors. This invisible gum stamp is missing in Mint NH condition from virtually all Norwegian collections!

1558 S/S "Posten / Bring" Standard officially issued Personalized Souvenir Sheet of two stamps.
View REPRESENTATIVE Image
VF: Norway has the distinction of creating what I believe to be the first souvenir sheet of "Standard Personalized Stamps" containing more than one stamp design. This was issued in autumn 2008 and contains two stamps (same frame design) with two different logos for Posten and Bring. The designs mark the division of Norway Post into two parts: Posten - what we think of as the standard "post office" and Bring - a package delivery, freight, and logistics company (similar to USPS in the U.S., but owned by the government). Only 275,000 (Scott says 375,000) of this souvenir sheet were printed and distributed free of charge to people in Oslo and other cities around Norway, sometimes in post offices, but also given away to people on the street. Because the souvenir sheet was NOT sold to collectors and distribution was wide, but one to a person, these souvenir sheets are extremely difficult to obtain. This is listed by Scott, but not yet by Facit or NK -- many collectors still do not know that it exists. [233002]
