(A full sheet with watermark 'wavy lines')

For the specialist; the values 1, 3, 7, 10 and 18 kr have also been printed on paper with watermark wavy lines, they are much cheaper uncanceled than canceled (because of the introduction of the Mark in 1876 they became obsolete)! The other watermark of this serie is lozenges.
