Iceland : Early 20th Century Stamps 1900 to 1949

This period in Icelandic postal history produced many interesting and attractive issues.  The 19th century numeral stamps were retired in 1902, and then strangely brought back again overprinted I GUILDI, meaning ‘’still valid’’.  The beautiful Parliamentary issue of 1930, a set of 15 regular stamps and 5 airmails showing scenes taken from Iceland’s history, were designed and produced in Austria and presented to the state as a gift.
