Lot 1237

Scandinavia: Iceland, 1897, Crowned Numeral surcharged, small "þrir" on 5a green (Scott 33A), paying the printed matter rate and tied by 11 Nov 1897 Reykjavik c.d.s. on a printed bilingual circular—Icelandic & English—detailing the reasons for the issue of the 3a on 5a surcharges (#31-33A); it is addressed to Hafnarfjördur with that town's crown-in-circle receiver; the stamp is Very Fine, the circular has a heavy file fold that is mostly separated. A most unusual postal history item.
Facit 36.
Estimate $300 - 400

The bulletin explains that, due to a 16-day delay in the supply of stamps from Copenhagen, the Post Office had run out of 3a stamps. To make up for the shortage, they arranged to overprint sheets of the 5a green with a small red "3" and the word "þrir" (meaning "three" in Icelandic). The stamps so overprinted were put on sale on November 1. However, upon observing the overprinted stamps in use, it was determined that the "3" and "þrir" together were rather unattractive. Accordingly, they decided to use only the word "þrir" on the remaining 5a sheets. Postal officials were instructed to "cancel the stamp as well as they cancel all other stamps…"
