    Iceland 1904: Berne UPU Reprints, "I Gildi / 02-03" complete set of 18 including the seven Official values, reprinted on thicker paper with New Large Crown watermark, perf 12¾ x 12¾, the superb and fresh set with thick browned gum, unmounted og. Extremely rare (Facit = 14'000 Skr.).
    Note: With the issue of the "I Gildi" stamps the despatch of the new issue to the UPU Headquarters in Bern was overlooked. By the time the P.O. was alerted to this supplies of the issue had been exhausted. Denmark reprinted the issue with the new watermark and the stamps were sent to Iceland for overprinting and thereafter forwarded to the UPU. Whilst Facit states an issue date of 1904, these specimens were distributed with the circular dated January 31, 1905.
