TJENESTE-FRIMAERKE: Denmark, officials (1871-1924) [Service stamp].
TJANESTE-FRIMARKE: Sweden, officials (1881-1919) [Service stamp].

I think that your stamp is the Denmark one.

I found that much out. I was checking my Scott and I see a few it could be but I am not sure it depends on the watermark and perf.

Hope this helps some. I am still new at WW and learning myself. I have about 3 or 4 sites I have to use still to get some of these.

Neat stamp, I like the pyrmids in the corners.
And the coat of arms of course.

Nice Cancel. I would not have said that a year ago.

Oh crapola - what kind of people am I hanging out with?

LOL, I didn't even notice the cancel,other then it got in my way of reading it... I guess I'm still fresh meat.
did notice some BAR cancel's on some stamps I did earlier, they were worth like 3 times more with them.
