This catalog is divided into two major time periods. The Danish period is before 1976 and the Faroe period from 1976 on. The author has collected Faroe meter markings for thirty years.

A number of the marks are illustrated. The tables are presented by meter manufacturer and list the meter number, the advertising slogan, the using firm’s name, the town, period of use, and a value in Danish kroner.

The Danish period tables are for the Hasler, Francotype, Frama, Krag, Neopost, Pitney-Bowes, Satas Eksport, and Postalia machines. For the Faroe Islands postal independence period the same meter manufacturers are listed with two additional sections—post office meter mark boxes and post office meter marks.

This handy priced catalog will help beginners to get started and provide information for the advanced collector who is seeking completion.
