Under the Versailles Treaty of 1919, Schleswig was divided into two zones. On 10th February 1920, Zone 1 (North) voted 75% to join Denmark, which it did on 9th July. On 14th March, Zone 2 (South) voted 80% to remain part of Germany.
A second set of 14 stamps (Sc15-28, SG29-42) to the same design but denominated in Danish currency and overprinted "1.ZONE" was issued for use in the North on 21st May 1920.
