I just got this from a dealer in Italy. Of course I wanted to check the watermark to verify it. I discovered it was not Sc Wmk.181, wavy lines but some letters that looked like "1G" or "1O". which is not identified in Scott. I have watermarked dozens of Sweden stamps and have never seen this one. Does anyone have any information on this? I don't generally collect watermark varieties but the only way you can tell the difference between the 1920-26 Heraldic Lion issues is the watermark. I'm not familiar with Italian and I suppose it is indicated in the description of the lot. Any Italian experts out there that can help me on this variety. Thanks! Wolf-==-

Could it be "IG" from KUNGLIGA POSTVERKET? That appears to be the marginal watermark.
