CATALOG NUMBERING KEY

 

POSTAL CARDS

This is a cross reference between the numbering in the most common catalogues on Danish postal stationery: Ringström, Oluf Pedersen, Michel and Higgins & Gage.

The short text is only a help to make sure that the numbering is right. This text alone does not make you able to descide the numbering of your own postal cards. Because of copyright laws the full text from the catalogues can not be shown.
