My only official stamp of Norway. Whats an official stamp? Well, simply, a stamp used for sending official mail (mail by government agencies). This one is from 1933-34. There are 12 stamps of different denominations from 2o to 100o in this series. My only hope is to have all the stamps from the series some day.
