Can't find this one. Seems to be from Denmark with 1875 Postmark from Banholm. Banholm appears to be part of Finland. Revenue? Thanks for your help.

I think/assume it is a Danish railway parcel stamp issued by the Lolland-Falster Railway. But don't pin me down on it.

I have been looking into this a bit more and I might be right. Before 1885, Banholm was the name of the town that is now called Bandholm. It was the terminal station of the Banholm-Maribo railroad, established in 1869.

The line was closed in 1952 and the station is now a small railroad museum

The building plan for Banholm station (note the spelling)
