Thoughts on these 1866 Danube Steam Packet Company stamps?

Post by Global Administrator »



These were in a huge brass bound leather Gibbons WWI IMPERIAL world album I just bought, and clearly have been on the page for a century.

Huge Cat in Michel if genuine - does anyone have any info on them? Gum has the appearance of great age, and 2 different perfs here. The key 17c is very nice.

Will be a very cheap set for someone!

Appreciate any input. 8-)

Hi Glen,

The two stamps on the left side, including the key value, are fake. You can see unilateral horizontal lines of the letters f and t. Originals cut the vertical lines both sides.

The same issue seems to be valid for the pale 10 kr, though less visible

As for the 10 kr on the right lower corner, it looks better, but the appearance of the perforations make me suspect it is a reprint.

I also found this web page as a concise resource:

Hope this helps
