LUXEMBOURG.

The telegraph stamps of Luxembourg were introduced on 1 January 1883 and remained in continuous use with the same design and colours
throughout, until 1 October 1940. This otherwise orderly series is however complicated by the existence of no less than six different perforation types,
including compounds, from 11 to 14. Information on the dates of these perforation varieties seems to be lacking and attempts to correlate them
with those of the postage stamps of the period add little. The fact that perforation 14 does not appear in postage stamps until 1938 suggests that
the perf. 14 x 11½ varieties may correspond to the last couple of years of issue while the most common variety, perf. 11 x 11½, may correspond
to the 1906 to 1920 period when this particular combination prevailed. What is needed is an analysis of perforation versus date of use
from a large number of used copies but I have not, unfortunately, had access to such a stock. Information would be welcome.
