I just finished cataloging several Norway stamps with lions on them. That was quite tedious! Some of them have 4-5 different varieties: different perfs, watermarks, sizes, etc.

re: Post Horn Stamps

Now your next challenge will be the Norwegian post horn issue. A series that has been running for more than 125 years, with many more different types than the lions. :-)

re: Post Horn Stamps

If I could just know how to sort them, that would be a big help. I could tell shaded from unshaded. The other nomenclature I found online kind of baffled me. Do you know of any web page that would help a beginner in this area?

re: Post Horn Stamps

I have a 16 page pdf-booklet in Norwegian that shows just how to sort them. It has lots of illustrations that will guide you through the Post Horn jungle. If interested, let me know by private message.
