I was searching for an image of a "Closet-Huset" counterstamp. I didn't find one but did stumble across this discussion on Samlerforum in 2009 that included input from Jorgen Somod concerning the "Corset-Huset" issue. Unfortunately, there was no translation available to me so I'm not sure if this material has already been covered in the thread. Anyway there might be something of interest in it, so thought I'd post a link.

I'm not going to translate all that, but it goes mainly that it was a common jeton for lokummer (Danish for the private place) also then being being called a closet hus (corset). Soemod.
