re: A little help please

I don't think it is a revenue. Usually they feature a value. They usually dont feature a person's name on them either.

I believe it just might be a revenue stamp... I am going to check with a member of my stamp club, who specializes in Norway ..

Silence in the face of adversity is the father of complicity and collusion, the first cousins of conspiracy..

I think it is an advertising label for the Moestue printing business or for the almanac they printed for years rather than a revenue..

re: A little help please

These are "Almanac Fee Stamps", which "represent the payment of a fee to the University of Oslo that held the monopoly on the production of almanacs and calendars in Norway."
This is according to "The Revenue Stamps of Norway" by Bjørn K. Wang, published in 2007. It notes that although the text on the stamp references almanacs, most copies are from calendars. Apparently only one publisher had the contract to publish almanacs and calendars at any one time. Moestue had the contract starting in 1913 at least through 1987, when the use of these stamps was discontinued. Stamps dated 1988 were printed and some do exist.

re: A little help please

May sound like a riddle but here it is.
I'm trying to ID some Slovakia stamps, can't find the listing so I go to the index in Scott 2017 Cat. it sends me to Vol 6, not there, so I check the index again, this time it send me to Vol 2, not there either, carefully I check Czechoslovakia after their split, it send me to Vol 5, can't find it, the index says Vol 2 and Vol 6. Those anyone knows where Slovakia is? and I don't mean in the map.
