Sweden A19 Scott 164 or 165 20o with a WM but it is a type that I cannot ID. Anyone seen this?
Sorry for the quality. Sometimes Irfan is crystal clear and then --




Thanks for looking and commenting.

UPDATE -- After asking this there is another post with almost the same inquiry. It "seems" to answer my issue but the referenced link specifically does not include Scott 164 or 165. Hmmm?

At that time Swedish stamps were printed on paper with sheet watermark. That appeared only on some stamps. Most of the stamps were without watermark. They are doublelined letters like yours. They have higher value than stamps without watermark.

You need a catalogue such as Facit Special for these watermarks. I cannot see from your photo if it has also wave lines. Without watermark this stamp has CV of 5 SEK. With watermark letters it has CV 17 SEK. If it has wave lines and letters, the CV is 2500 SEK. CV's are from 2011 Facit Special.

Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately no wavy lines.

In that case it is a variant of non watermarked version. (It comes from a sheet where most stamps don't have any watermark.)
