International Postage Meter Stamp Catalog/Denmark

DenmarkEdit

The first Denmark meters appeared in 1925. All stamps have “DANMARK” in the frank except some of the Postage Due stamps. The stamps have a letter prefix which in most cases identifies the meter manufacturer. A few anomalies exist where the letter prefix of one manufacturer is found on stamps that appear to be from a different manufacturer’s machine.
Stamps with slogan showing the name of the manufacturer, “SERVICE MASKINE” and a number are from meters loaned to mailers while their machines are out of service for repair.
Denmark has one native meter manufacturer: Portos.
Danish frank designs are standardized by the government. So far there have been four main designs plus additional distinctive designs used for various Post Office services.
A - Frank with simulated-perforation borders
B - Frank with single, straight-line border
C - Horizontal frank with straight-line borders at right and bottom, open at top and left
D - Open design without outer frame lines, “POST” in oval at top
PO - Special stamps for Post Office window/counter use
PD - Special stamps for Postage Due

Parcel Post Freight stampsEdit

Meter stamps used by Danish railroad (and possibly steamship) companies to frank freight receipts have “DSB” in the design.
Little information has been reported about these issues, and no attempt has been made to catalog them here.
Readers with information about these issues are invited to contribute to the catalog.
