This stamp looks very familiar, but can't seem to find it in a catalog. The closest found is Scott number 136, but obviously this is not the same. Any help appreciated.

As a side note: My arm is coming along fine and I was actually able to type this using both hands on the keyboard, not withstanding plenty of mistakes as usual. I started Physical Therapy last Friday and what a difference it has made is such a short time.

re: Mysterious Denmark stamp

Welcome back to the keyboard, Mike! My wife is a trained occupational therapist and the lines between their work and physical therapy are very blurred. I've learned to appreciate the work of both groups. I hope your PT continues to go well!

re: Mysterious Denmark stamp

Good to see you up and about Mike. I don't have a catalog but stampworld says it was printed in 1915. You should be able to find in in Scott by year. Probably one of those entries in the catalog without pictures.

re: Mysterious Denmark stamp

Tom, I'm actually seeing an OT, but I told them I was retired and didn't need Occupational Therapy. After she got it she gave me a weird look. LOL It is truly amazing how much has been accomplished in so short a time. My therapy takes about one and a half hours, three times a day and some of the exercises are painful to say the least. No Pain, No Gain!!!!

Speaking of therapy, it's that time again.

re: Mysterious Denmark stamp

Hi Mike,

This may help,

It looks like: 1915 SG number 187 catalogue value used £50.00 GBP. But the frame is missing. Nice find!

re: Mysterious Denmark stamp

Mike,
It appears to be the Scott 136, with the Type "c" overprint (see Scott no 79) , as opposed to the type "e" overprint pictured adjacent to the listing for 136.

Glad to hear your recovery is going well. Been there, done that. LOL...no fun, except in retrospect.

re: Mysterious Denmark stamp

Benque,
Thank you, you are correct. In Scott's it pictures the "Official" stamp w/overprint and I of course didn't see the listing for 136, where it says the stamp is "a6". It's hard to see the forest for the trees. Just another half hour spent looking for this.

Thank you all for the words of encouragement and since I'm doing so well I think we, the dogs and I, will go to the park tomorrow, on the bike. But there will be no hot-dogging, just serious bike riding.
Mike

Be careful out there on that bike or the OT may need reinforcements!
