To continue with some of the interesting perfins of the world, below are two not-so-ordinary shaped perfins from Denmark. To make things even more interesting, there is a nearly 90 years difference between these two stamps. At least in Denmark, the perfin culture seems to be still very much alive and kicking.

Denmark perfins

The first stamp, 15 ore violet (Michel #46A, cat 1,50€), was issued in October 1905. This danish definitive series (with and/or without hearts) is one of the longest running ones next no Norwegian posthorns.  I haven’t quite figured what the perfin says, but it looks like stylized “C&C”.  If somebody knows, I’m more than happy to know more about the history of this perfin.

The 5 kr blue (Michel #1030,cat 0.50€) definitive stamp was  issued in 1992. It shows a portrait of Queen Margrethe II. This time the perfin is a wavy line made of two lines.

As far as I know,  approximately 1050 private or public firms have used perforated stamps in Denmark.
