Here is an image of a stamp depicting the Frihedsstøtten, a column in Copenhagen which commemorates the 150th anniversary of the abolition of Stavnsbåndet, a form of serfdom imposed on male farmers in Denmark which had been introduced in 1733 by King Christian VI of Denmark-Norway; this stamp was engraved by Johannes Britze and issued by Denmark on June 20, 1938, Scott No. 262, Facit No. 285. Also, here are a couple of photos of the column and its base.
