Bonjour



This stamps should be the number 1 or 2 according to the Facit catalogue.
The problem is they shox 4 burelages, but my stamp the burelage is is pointilled.



Do you have a more complete catalog or documentation?

Have you checked whether the design was used for postal stationery and whether your example might be a 'cut-square?'

To add to my confusion. Scott is blurry but also appears to show the "wavy" lines as "dotted." Actually except for Facit all of the stamps I have looked at are dotted. I have been interested in DWI and I have a lot to learn. This is good. Spiro forgeries. Jay Smith stamps site is good!

They are all dotted. Taken from DWI wiki.

DWI Sc #1 has yellow, brown or white gum. What color gum is on Sc #2-4? What color gum does your stamp have antoin?

@redwoodrandy,

I think OP was talking referring about to the wavy lines in the margin and within the frame lines. You can best see those below the value.

Thank you NSK. I see it now especially in the "wavy" margin in the copy I showed while the OP copy is "lacy."

Bonjour
Thank you for your answers.
The Danish stamp which has been taken over for the Danish West Indies is the dotted N 4 (Facit).
It exists with a corrugated burelage under the No. 7 (FACIT)

There is no picture of the burelage . Facit just say dotted sprandels and wayvy-lined sprandels.

Thank you for showing the "yellow" gum. Very helpful. Only #1 has yellow, brown or white color I have learned. #2-4 have only one color I am informed. Not sure what that color is? White?

The northeast corner of the original picture appears to show a faded or very light cancellation mark. The white adherances on the back also suggest it was attached to some type of paper. I am a bit surprised by the reference to the colour of the "gum."

In the op's stamp the burelage is there;albeit not very noticable.
These stamps suffered during their transport to the West Indies;thus were re-gummed upon arrival.The thick gum (brown or yellow) soaked into the paper..

I don't know if it is a cancellation mark but you get gum on the back. I have another stamp who is clearly cancelled, but it gets brown gum on the back:



not a nice cancellation!
