This stamp constitutes a significant contribution in acknowledging the history of Greenland. This anniversary stamp is the first in the series of a total of three stamps.

This stamp constitutes a significant contribution in acknowledging the history of Greenland. This anniversary stamp is the second in the series of a total of three stamps.


Lou wrote: It has annoyed me for years that Scott lists the wrong IDs for two of the stamps on stamps. When the first two stamps were issued, I identified them as Q3a and Q4a, since, as per Scott, those stamps were issued in 1905 and the 2005 stamps commemorated the stamp centenary; again, per Scott, Q3 was issued in 1916 and Q4 in 1937!  I questioned the new issue editor when their lists came out, and they replied with their standard answer--that they always used major #s for their IDs.

There is nothing more inconsistent than Scott's consistency, so I think you and I should have the right IDs.

50th Anniversary EUROPA Stamps

2004 Inside #471: Greenland #438O

For many years Greenland has issued stamps of the EUROPA-series. The idea of a joint stamp issue was first conceived in the beginning of the 1950s, when the ”Coal and Steel Community” (namely the Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, France, West Germany, and Italy) decided to issue an annual special issue with a common design. The first stamp of the series was issued in 1956. This year Greenland issues a commemorative stamp for the 50th anniversary of the EUROPA-stamps that depicts the award-winning contribution of the series from 2004.

75th year jubilee of the American Issue - Mint - Souvenir sheet

Scott: #????P

Issued: 07.05.2020

75th Anniversary, American Issue

[American Edition, type D] Inside #???? (in margin): Greenland #13O

[American Edition, type D1] Inside #???? (in margin): Greenland #14O

Type G Inside #????: Greenland #17O (Change)

[American Edition, type H] Inside #????: Greenland #18O (Change)

The American Issue refers to a set of Greenlandic stamps that were designed and printed in New York, as the German occupation of Denmark had made transportation from Denmark to Greenland impossible. 

The original stamps were designed and printed by the American Bank Note Company in New York after advice from the Greenlandic leaders, and the three new stamps issued in 2020, each display one of the proposed original designs, which was ultimately scrapped for something else. The three stamps depict a kayak with blue and red frame respectively, and a common Eider with a brown frame, and although these were part of the original proposal for the American Issue, they were ultimately replaced, in favor of stamps featuring an image of the Danish King Christian X on horseback. The image of the King that was used for the stamp, is the image shown above the three stamps in the new souvenir sheet.
