I presume these to be locals, and one revenue.
(Including the "Adam and Eve" local)
Any information welcomed.

I would especially be interested in
1. The significance (if any) of the Viking in the 3 ore blue
2. If the peculiar cancellation "Veille bypost" is a little swallow, or something similar?

Thanks

1) Horsens Telefon og Bypost, local in Horsens, Denmark. This stamp is #16 in the Christensen/Ringstrom's "The Private Local Posts of Denmark" yellow-green (shades noted)issued Feb. 1, 1887, Perf 11 1/2.
Value .20 in 1974 when published.
This post was operated by S. Melgaard from 1886-90. Your stamp was canceled with type 6 cancel, which are small rectangles shapes all over the stamp a rarity level of 5 out of 10.


This was the 2nd post under the name Horsens, an earlier post operated from 1883-84, those stamps lack the "Telefon og" phrase.

2) Randers Bypost og Pakke-Expedition in Randers, Denmark. This stamp is listed as #20, Lithography process in sheets of 100, Perf. 12. Blue. The catalogue lists your Viking as simply being a Knight.
However, the Knight is supposed to be the legendary Niels Eddesen who was assassinated in 1340 by Count Gerhard, the Tyrant. Issued in Sept. 1887. Value listed at $1.00.
The cancel is to weak to ID.

This post was operated by S. Christensen from 1886-89.
An earlier version of this post existed in 1885-86 as simply the Randers Bypost then sold to Christensen.

3) Veile Bypost og Pakke-Expedition in Veile, Denmark. This post operated by K. Helms from 1887-1912, when at his death his wife continued the service into 1916.
The 2 ore stamp is either #2 (yellow/$1.), #3 (orange/$7.) or #4 (lemon-yellow/$5.). I'd go orange but I'm not there.
Lithography in sheets of 100 with Perf. 11 1/2.
Everything holds true for the 5 ore, red, which is #8, however, the value
is left blank I believe this is a publishing error.
In Rowcroft's "Catalog of Local Post Issues" published in 1960 lists the 5 ore as #6, valued at .15.
For each issue there are 5 plate types.
The cancel used is cancel #1, star, rated 4 of 10.
The type of bird is not listed in either catalog, but it appears to be a pigeon, not a sparrow.

4) Viborg Bypost og Pakke-Expedition from Viborg, Denmark operated from 1886-90 by Kreston Mathiasen, operated as Viborg Bypost till 1887. Your stamp is listed as #9 issued July 6, 1887, perf 11 1/2, value listed at .30. Cancel is type #1 with a 4 of 10 rating.

This stamp does show Adam & Eve under the tree of knowledge, which is a reproduction of Viborg's city arms.

This post was turned over to Jens Iversen in 1890 lasted another year.

Your last stamp is a revenue.

Warrehouse, my "local" hero
Thanks very much indeed,
I'll be sticking your replies in my
album if I can print them out and they look suitable.
Great info.

You are now in print
Purists would disagree, I follow the Richard C Witt, cinderella example, and like my stamps on simple quadrille, with lots of gossip, gotta have lots of gossip.

They're hinged and stored away in Denmark,
Thanks for your help.

Rod222,
I am actually planning a gazetteer/atlas listing all postage stamp issuing entities.
The America's, Oceania & Australia & Antarctica are nearly done listing & cross referencing. That why I was interested with your Austaralian Railways books, I need to cross reference that info.

Have a Great Down Under!
Mike

Your wife is a stamp collector!
How lucky are you!
..and we are lucky in this age, rattle the text off on the screen
and you have the page printed in a cat's meeouw.
Sometimes it is tragic to see beautifully hand written pages
of yesteryear appear at auction with the results of "pickings" from others.

Beautifully created pages, india ink, and some colour,
dog eared and torn...all that previous work, seemingly wasted.
