Denmark
1962-1965

Czeslaw Slania engraved 236 stamps for Denmark. Additionally, there were two different designs of Queen Margrethe II's portrait, which resulted in 32 stamps of the same design but in different colors and face values (1st design) and 10 stamps (2nd design).

He started working for the Danish Postal Authorities in 1962 and continued until 1989. On the first 11 pages of this section, you will see examples of all the regular issues, including the Souvenir Sheets for the International Stamp Exhibitions in Copenhagen during the 1970's and 1980's. On the 12th page you will see all of the so called, Queen stamps.

After Slania started engraving stamps for the Danish Post Office, he often visited the printing house in Copenhagen. Here he became friends with the Director of the printing works, Mr. Ricardo Sundgaard, and a postal clerk, Mr. A. Rasmussen.

 

These two persons received a very special honour from Slania in 1965, when he engraved the stampfor the centenary of the first mercantile college in Denmark. 

The stamp shows an open accounts book, and Slania has engraved the names of his friends in it. In the middle of the left page you'll find the name A. Rasmussen, and on the last entry of the right page, the name R. Sundgaard, as shown on the blow-up on the left. You will need a strong magnifier to read the names. 

Slania would later say: 'I thought I would be forced to redo the whole engraving, but the Danish Postal Authorities also had a sense of humor, so a new engraving never came into question'. Mr. Rasmussen and Mr. Sundgaard felt honored by Slanias' gesture, and much later would state that if Slania could make fun of them in this pleasant way, then he must certainly have felt at ease with the Danish Postal Administration.
