TRAINS on CINDERELLAS
Danish Railway Personnel Charity Stamps

DANSK LOKOMOTIVPERSONALETS HJÆLPEFOND

Here are images of all the stamps I can find from the set of Danish railway personnel charity stamps,
one of which I showed at the top of the main Trains on Cinderellas page.

According to Christoffersen's catalogue of Scandinavian Christmas seals and charity stamps,
these were issued every year from 1914 through 1957, each year with the same design,
differing in color and of course date. The denomination was 1KR from 1914 through 1947,
then 1.5KR from 1948 trhough 1957.

They were printed in sheetlets of nine stamps, one stamp wide by nine long.

They funded medical care for railway personnel and their families.

Thanks to Jay Smith for some of these images. Most are of stamps I once owned.

06/23/2020 - Collector Rod McAllister sent images of five more:
Two with lovely cancels for 1931, plus 1944, 1947, 1955, and better copies of a few others. Thanks Rod!
