Norway - Custom One Ring Cancel Stamp Album For Sale
This lot contains a custom made album for collecting the One-Ring cancellations of Norway. These cancellations were used from 1845 until the early 20th Century. They are an exciting collecting area from Norway that has attracted collectors for over 50 years.
The album contains 35 pages for the stamps as well as a color 2-page introduction about One-Ring cancellations.Those cancellations issued for traveling postal offices on trains and ships are separated into their own section as the final 3 regularpages of the album. Pages are printed on 65lb smooth finish, white card stock. They are standard US sized 8 1/2 x 11 inch pages. Each page will be in it's own sheet protector and all pages will be contained in a new 1 inch white 3-ring binder. The album can be ordered in either English or Norwegian language. I also offer additional pages where duplicates or new discoveries can be placed. These can be ordered at the time of purchase for an additional $1.50 per page with no additional postage costs.
***** No stamps are included in this item. It is for the album only. Stamps shown in the above illustrations are to simply show how the stamps will look in the album.
Over 1000 different cancellations and variations are covered by this album.Many of the cancellations are quite easy to locate, while others are very rare. That being said,onecan oftenfind rare cancellationsfor the price of a regular stamp without any premium for the cancellation.
Some postmasters were very good at making clear full impressions of the cancellation on stamps, others were not so good at their job, and the cancellations can be quite blurred and only partially struckon the stamps. The stamp on the cover shows the ideal for a cancellation from Norway. This is a stamp from my own collection. If you wish to have a different stamp on the cover, I can offer a wide variety of images, or you can supply an image of your own favorite stamp to place on the cover. Please let me know this at the time of your purchase.
Some of the various cancellations were repaired one or more times during their service. These different versions are shown separately on the pages so that each type can be collected.
A comercially produced album was available a number of years ago in this area, but has long since gone out of print. At the time it cost about $200 to purchase and was never easy to find. A number of new cancellation discoveries have been made since that album was issued that also makethe old albumsomewhat obsolete.
I have personally custom designed these pages to cover all of the currently known cancellations. They are listed alphabetically and then in order chronologically if there is more than one cancellation type from that location. Each listing has a set of dates that show approximately the dates that it was in use. Please note that thefirst date for each listing is based on when the cancellation was sent out to the using location. The ending dates are not as defined and are often estimates based on when newer cancellations were issued. Some cancellations may have been used for 10 or even 20 years longer than the indicated ending dates.
** Please note that this album is notintended to be a handbook or identification guide for these cancellations. I recommend using Norgeskatalogen 2008 as well as Norsk Filatelistika from 1969.Other important references are theDanielsen ship cancellation book and the Tiemer/Aanensen Railway cancel catalogs. Some older editions of Norgeskatalogen also cover a good deal of this material.
