1920-1922 KING CHRISTIAN X ISSUE
PERFORATED 14 x 14½
"178" Numeral Cancel
Stamp has a small 1.5mm sealed tear - center bottom - otherwise sound.
The "178" Numeral Cancel in Circle has an interesting history. It
started out in 1905 as a 22mm circle Type 1a aboard first, the SS Laura,
and then, the SS Bothnia. After several iterations it became an 18mm
circle Type 2 as is seen here. At the time of this King Christian X
issue in the early 1920's, this Type 2 "178" was being used in Ystu-Garðar
and is priced at 1000 SEK or about $150 USD.
