you can see that time
has left no trace on me :-)

Det Kongelige Klasselotteris Bancobreve 1753-1851:
Pr. 23.09.2014 er hele 412 bancobreve beskrevet i Kapitel 16! incl. de
bancobreve, der er vist i de øvrige kapitler.

Søllestedmærkerne:
Registreringen af de utakkede Søllestedmærkers vandmærkeplaceringer
viser med al tydelighed, at der kun har været et enkelt ark utakkede
mærker. Endnu mangler skanning af de sidst afstemplede Søllestedmærker,
mærkerne nr. 15, 16 og 17 - har du et af disse, må du gerne henvende dig!

Tolererede fejl:
Her beskrives en faktisk ny type fejl (bl.a. i Fr. IX, 20- og 25 øre rød
stålstiksmærker), som jeg tidligere har forvekslet med fejl, som
stammede fra et slidt kromlag på trykcylinderen:

Aarhus-meteoritten:
Den 2. oktober 1951 faldt en meteorit i Risskov. Inden trak meteoren
et spor over himlen, og dens passage ved Marselisborg Hospital, hvor
jeg boede, blev set af bl.a. mig. Her er lidt historie om meteoritten:

Muonionalusta-meteoritten:
For omkring en million år siden splintredes en stor meteor i luften
over nordsverige. Der er fundet rigtig mange meteoritter fra dette fald,
men bemærkelsesværdigt er det, at en enkelt person har fundet en
betragtelig del meteoritter og solgt dem via et skandinavisk
auktionshus i Stockholm. Jeg har forsøgt at lave en oversigt over
lige netop de meteoritter, som denne person har solgt.

er et stort fransk frimærketidsskrift, der i oktober 2013 bad mig

i anledning af en fransk udstilling, Le Salon philatélique d'Automne.
Udstillingen fandt sted i dagene 06.-09.11.2013, og temaet var den

About me
I am a retired Electrical Engineer - I am also educated as a mechanic. I retired on 1 April 2003 and since then I have had a lot of fun with my hobbies! I am a member of the Danish Philatelic Federation (after eight years "on board" I retired in 1996). Further, I am also a member of Dansk Posthistorisk Selskab - The Danish Postal History Society - where I was "on board" 1988-1999. I have spent a lot of time studying Danish Postal History which you can see from all the articles you can find on my home page.
    Since 28.01.1977 I served as a Danish juror and since 1987 as a F.I.P. (Federation Internationale de Philatelie) accredited juror (Traditional Philately - but I judged also postal history exhibits). Now I am retired from both positions as I on 31.01.2007 had served as a Danish juror for 30 years (and two days!) - it was time to leave and let the youngsters take over :-)

FIP Literature Commission
I retired as a member of the board of FIP's Literature Commission in 2008 but I invite you to take a look at our activities on our homepage.

Danish Postal History and Philately
Actually, I have a lot to tell you about Danish Postal History and Philately. For example, the Danish flag you see to the left of my picture is what we in Denmark call a "Postflag", which is a "Splitflag" with the logo of the Danish General Post Office in the upper left red square. This "Postflag" is mostly used by ships in regular postal service. The logo below is the old GPO logo used before World War Two. I'll tell you the story of the GPO logo and the Danish "Postflag" some time in the future!

So, until then - please enjoy what I continuously since 01.08.1995 have tried to "pollute" the web space with:
