60 Type I, Facit #56I [1891 20 öre Oscar watermarked; no horizontal engraving lines behind ear] Used with Superb centering and a F-VF 22 September 1891 HÖÖR (changed to HÖR in 1911) pre-November cancel that confirms that this must be a Type I. The Ultramarine color is distinct, but exists for both types -- Type I does NOT have horizontal shading lines on the back of the head behind the ear (Type II does). This stamp is scarce with such nice centering and is rarely seen thus AND with a confirming-date postmark. Certainly scarcer than 1 in 1000 examples.

60 Type I, Facit #56I [1891 20 öre Oscar watermarked; no horizontal engraving lines behind ear] Used with VF centering and an 8 August 1891 pre-November cancel that confirms that this must be a Type I. The Ultramarine color is distinct, but exists for both types -- Type I does NOT have horizontal shading lines on the back of the head behind the ear (Type II does). This stamp is unusual with a clear confirming-date postmark.

75 [1911 20 öre Oscar, Engraved, UNWATERMARKED] Used with F-VF centering and neat 18 December 1911 FALUN cancellation. This 20 öre stamp on UNwatermarked paper was issued 22 August 1911, thus examples canceled after that date are sought after as being "somewhat confirming on the face" of the likely lack of watermark. While a cancel after the issue date is not proof positive that there is no watermark, the watermarked stamp (Scott #60) is very uncommon used that late. In addition to the lack of watermark on Scott #75-76, the paper texture is slightly different as well. An attractive example -- such nicely canceled examples are hard to find.

76 [1911 25 öre Oscar, Engraved, UNWATERMARKED] Used with F-VF centering and pleasing 30 October 1911 "SÖDERH..." cancellation (likely SÖDERHAMN). This 25 öre stamp on UNwatermarked paper was issued 3 May 1911, thus examples canceled after that date are sought after as being "somewhat confirming on the face" of the likely lack of watermark. While a cancel after the issue date is not proof positive that there is no watermark, the watermarked stamp (Scott #61) is very uncommon used that late. In addition to the lack of watermark on Scott #75-76, the paper texture is slightly different as well. An attractive example -- such nicely canceled examples are hard to find.
