| The 1875 issues|
The first printings of the ØRE-values from 1875. 1st print of 8 øre and 50 øre vary in colour. 5 øre, 20 øre and 100 øre are not represented on this page. They were issued somewhat later.
SK and øre (two currencies) combined
In the centre a unique 2 SK lettercard sent March 1875 (?) from a town just north of the border (handed in to a railway P.O.) with a 4 øre stamp (2nd printing) added = 8 øre, which was the low rate for the so-called "border letters". Lettercards were at that time treated like letters.
