Official Stamps

Besides the normal postage stamps with 'PORTO' overprint (issued in 1921, see under normal postage stamps), special postage due stamps were issued in 1921. They have the inscription 'DANMARK PORTO'. The following values were issued: 1 o orange, 4 o blue, 5 o brown, 7 o green, 10 o green, 20 o green, 25 o red, 25 o violet, 1 K blue, 1 K brown and blue and 5 K violet. The value 10 o green also exists with 'GEBYR GEBYR' overprint. Example:


'Officialy Sealed' labels

The first 'Official seal' was issued in 1878, it has inscription 'POSTVAESENETS OVERBESTVRELSE KONTORET FOR BEHANDLING AF UNBESORGEDE POSTSAGER KJOBENHAVN' with a crown in the center in the colour brown with a green background pattern. Similar stamps were issued in 1890 and 1915 (smaller design), these stamps have inscription 'GENERALDIREKTORATET FOR POSTVAESENET' (both in colour brown). Pictures of these stamps can be found at http://www.poseal.com/.

Non issued stamp

I think the above stamp is a proof of Denmark: head of the King to the right in a circle, inscription on top 'POST, right 'F.R.M', left 'K.G.L.' and '8 RBS 2 1/2 SCH. C.' at the bottom. The colour of this proof is brown. There also seems to exist another proof, with the head of Mercury, (4 RBS 1 1/4 SCH. C.):
