Dear R ,thanks for the E-mail .I will make the changes as you suggested . I wanted you to see the whole collection before we put a price on it .E-mail me back ,I don't know how to email scans of pages so I put it back on here were you can see it .

These cancellations are collected both by the numbers and by the stamp issues ,so duplicate of the cancel in my collection is not the only factor in price but which time period stamp it is on .

Surprise that nobody here knows about this highly collectible area of Iceland philately .

Found a book for sale on this subject but it covers only half of the number cancels on this subject and they want $90.00 for the book . E-bay has a section on these but most are cancels of low quality and hard to read .

There is a recent SCF discussion on these cancels. See topic "Iceland 3 Aur Stamp Info?".

Facit's Special (Scandinavia) Catalog gives a complete listing (with values) and explanation of these number cancels. If you borrow a copy of this catalog from the APRL, then you will have the complete story at your fingertips.

Interesting, never knew there was a pattern to Iceland cancels. Nice collection!

FYI, with their very-helpful staff and internet / communication resources, I have found that you can get most of what you might want without traveling.

Just received the FACIT 2022 Scandinavia classic specialized - great resource, bilingual Swedish/English, covers up to 1951. Quick shipping from Nordfrim. Among many other things, has info on numeral cancels for Denmark, Iceland & Norway.

I've been using Facit for some time on a sideline of the numeral cancels of Denmark, but only on the 1864 4sk. Several of the numbers are really tough to find that late yet are relatively easy for the 4sk browns from the earlier years.
