Notes
1. Although Scott #2 and SG4, the 4 rigsbank skilling stamp is #1 in some catalogue numbering systems. It is also much cheaper to buy, which is why it appears here. Incidentally, the Danich currency in  1851 was 96 rigsbank skilling = 1 rigsdaler. In 1875 this changed to 100 ore = 1 krone. Even better news, a FICC colleague advises that, 'Denmark #2, 4 R.B.S. brown, issued April 1, 1851. #1 issued a month later, May 1, 1851. #1 is a local stamp for use in Copenhagen'.
