Scott #2374 [2000 Slania 1000th Stamp Engraving: Detail from painting "Great Deeds by Swedish Kings" by David Ehrenstrahl; souvenir sheet] COMPLETE PACK containing the ISSUED S/S, BLACKPRINT, and FDC. ALL THREE ITEMS SIGNED BY SLANIA. The normal pack has gotten hard to find, but it has been a very long time since I have had an example with all three items signed by Slania. All fresh and VF, NH. The normal complete pack ($75), as well as the normal S/S and FDC (the blackprint is usually only available as part of the complete pack) are offered HERE. This issue was the pinnacle of Slania work -- it has to be seen to be believed! Only one signed example available. ---

A remarkably nice example of the original stamp (NOT a reprint): original gum is quite scarce; such nice centering is very unusual; and such nice color and perforations are unusual; and examples without faults or repairs are very unusual, especially in mint condition.

23b DOUBLE PRINT [1876 20 on 20 öre Ringtype Perf 14] Used F-VF with neat, upright GRENNA 4 August 1877 cancellation (plus small part of another strike). One printing of the 20 öre was so light in Pale Orange olor as to be almost useless (though some were released and used) and thus they were run through the press again to print in a darker color. Facit lists three possible color groups on top of the Pale Orange; This is Facit #23c, the Dull Red, however, this red of this example is much softer or more pale than typically found (the colors were hand-mixed as needed and were not consistent). The red (top) color is shifted a little farther than usual from the underlying color, making this example a little more obvious than usual (clearly visible, but as always more visible with a 10x magnifier). Such obvious examples are scarce -- and especially when in such nice quality and with a nice postmark.

Unusually clean and bright color and paper (often gets dirty), upright but partial postmark, and perfect perforations -- a beautiful example! The Scott listings for 34a lemon yellow vs 34c citron yellow need revision and clarification; I have just (5/26/2019) discussed this with the responsible editor. If my proposal is accepted, this will be listed as 34c (citron yellow) and 34a will simply become yellow.

Q1 "1.93" VARIETY, Facit #97v1 [1917 1.98 Parcel Post surcharge] Used VF/Superb 3-Strip with variety stamp on right stamp. The "8" of the overprint is significantly deformed and nearly looks like a "3". Facit calls it the 1.93 variety and places it as position 33 in the sheet. I have had so few examples (maybe 5?) in the last 46 years that I suspect that the damage to the overprint plate occurred sometime during the printing process and only exists from part of the printing. To the best of my knowledge, this variety was first reported by David Anderson (deceased) of Minnesota back in the 1970s or 1980s and through his almost-maddening perseverance the variety was confirmed as constant and became catalog listed. This variety example would be the nicest used single that I have had or seen and the only one I have had or seen in a used multiple. The stamp is much harder to find (mint or used) than the modest catalog value suggests; and in a used multiple it is extremely scarce.

Q1 Possible "1.93" VARIETY PRECURSOR, Facit #97v1?? [1917 1.98 Parcel Post surcharge] Used Average-Fine example showing damage to the "8" in the overprint, with part of the metal cliche breaking away; when fully broken away, I think this would look like the "1.93" variety. If my observation is correct, this would support my theory that the overprint plate damage occurred during the printing and thus only some of the sheets show the variety. This is the only such potential precursor example, mint or used, that I have ever seen or know about.

397 FLUORESCENT, Facit #300v1 [1968 Fluorescent Printing of the 1948 1.40 kr dark green 3-Crowns] Used Superb with fully dated 14 February 1969 light cancellation. An unannounced (accidental?) 1968 printing on bright yellow fluorescent (under long-wave UV light) paper. This variety (and also some faintly fluorescent varieties of other stamps) was accidentally discovered around 1978 by a staff member of the Rolf Gummesson stamp dealer firm who was checking some other stamps under UV light and noticed these. In 1968-1969 this denomination was needed for foreign postal money orders (thus the stamps were spread widely on items sent outside of Sweden -- and the destination post offices tended to keep such forms as the receipt for making the payment -- which helps to explain the rarity of used examples). The supply of mint stamps was long exhausted before this variety was discovered; only by chance might a collector have obtained a mint example (of a 20 year old stamp design) from the post office in 1968. Rare in mint and quite hard to find used, especially undamaged and with nice centering. This is a top quality example in the 99th percentile.

397 FLUORESCENT, Facit #300v1 [1968 Fluorescent Printing of the 1948 1.40 kr dark green 3-Crowns] Used Superb with light corner cancellation. An unannounced (accidental?) 1968 printing on bright yellow fluorescent (under long-wave UV light) paper. This variety (and also some faintly fluorescent varieties of other stamps) was accidentally discovered around 1978 by a staff member of the Rolf Gummesson stamp dealer firm who was checking some other stamps under UV light and noticed these. In 1968-1969 this denomination was needed for foreign postal money orders (thus the stamps were spread widely on items sent outside of Sweden -- and the destination post offices tended to keep such forms as the receipt for making the payment -- which helps to explain the rarity of used examples). The supply of mint stamps was long exhausted before this variety was discovered; only by chance might a collector have obtained a mint example (of a 20 year old stamp design) from the post office in 1968. Rare in mint and quite hard to find used, especially undamaged and with nice centering. This is a top quality example!

The cancellation is light and attractive; it is easy to overlook that it is a DANISH (KØ)BENHAVN postmark -- typically from mail posted on board a small ship that did not have its own postal workers. Danish cancellations on Swedish stamps are unusual by this time period; I do not recall ever seeing one on this stamp. Clear KPV watermark. Much nicer than usually seen, with excellent centering; usual perforations for this stamp. Even in normal quality, this is a scarce stamp: 2018 Facit value about $48 for normal centering.

The Ultramarine color is distinct, but exists for both types -- Type I does NOT have horizontal shading lines on the back of the head behind the ear (Type II does). This stamp is scarce with such nice centering and is rarely seen thus AND with a confirming-date postmark. Certainly scarcer than 1 in 1000 examples.

The Ultramarine color is distinct, but exists for both types -- Type I does NOT have horizontal shading lines on the back of the head behind the ear (Type II does). The catalogs indicate that Type II came into use sometime in November and do not indicate a specific date, thus this 6 November date could perhaps be confirming of Type I. A very attractive example.

8 Dark Blue [1858 12 öre Coat of Arms] Mint, original gum, with XF-Superb centering and extremely lightly hinged. This is an earlier printing with the "1855 perforations" (more irregular than the "1865 perforations" used for later printings). Incredible, intense color, wonderful centering, extremely nice perforations for an earlier printing, and with excellent gum. The impression can best be described as proof-like; it is something to behold. Mint examples of this workhorse stamp are seldom found in such nice quality.

11 Rose Brown (Scott 2018 Classic #11b) (Facit #11g) [1858 30 öre Coat of Arms] Mint, NEVER HINGED, original gum, with F-VF centering. Accompanied by a 2012 Helena Obermüller-Wilén certificate stating that it is mint with original gum, never hinged ("postfrisk"), with a SFF grade of 3,3,5 and with the comment that translates to "A very beautiful and fresh example". Wonderful delicate color, perfect perforations, and perfect gum (with the expected "pooling" of the later printings). While mint examples of this workhorse stamp are offered in the market, they are usually dingy and shopworn, and rarely NH -- NH examples are very scarce. Facit 2018 value SEK 9000 for least costly printing. An outstanding example with freshness rarely seen!

B1 INVERTED WATERMARK, Facit #105cx [1916 5 öre ovpt on 2 öre First Semi-Postal issue] Used Fine+, with almost complete "HALMSTAD Lbr" (letter box) smaller-town cancellation. Clear (without fluid) inverted wavy-line watermark. Facit 2018 value SEK 800 ($105 8/2018 with a typical cancellation). Examples of even the basic stamp with smaller-town cancellation are very unusual; they are extremely scarce on the watermark varieties. The specialist will appreciate just how scarce this item is!

B1 INVERTED WATERMARK AND KPV WATERMARK, Facit #105cxz [1916 5 öre ovpt on 2 öre First Semi-Postal issue] Used with VF centering. and almost complete, but inverted, "HAPARANDA" smaller-town cancellation. The cancel is a bit heavy, but there is no doubt about its use! Clear (without fluid) inverted wavy-line watermark AND KPV watermark. Facit 2018 value SEK 2400 ($310 8/2018 with a typical cancellation). Examples of even the basic stamp with smaller-town cancellation are very unusual; they are extremely scarce on the watermark varieties. This watermark-double-variety is extremely scarce -- one might even say rare. In 45 years I believe I have had one mint example, but this is the only used example! The specialist will appreciate just how scarce this item is both with the watermark variety and the smaller-town cancellation! By the way, Haparanda is located at the northerly extreme of the Swedish coastline, and is the eastern-most community. As the key to the primary land route to Finland, it has great historical importance.

1 [1855 3 Skilling Banco] FIRST STAMP OF SWEDEN. Used with typical Average-Fine centering, but with expertly done repairs that most people would not be able to detect, and a couple slightly shorter perf tips at top. There is a very faint brownish line just barely showing through to the front from ink transfer from the original mailpiece. Otherwise completely genuine. Neat and crisp STOCKHOLM 23 April 1958 cancellation. WONDERFUL INTENSE COLOR! The vast majority of #1 on the market are either damaged or repaired (even if not so described). Facit 2018 value for sound examples is SEK 45,000 = $5850! This is a nice looking example at a very reasonable price. Accompanied by 2018 Jay Smith certificate with "lifetime guarantee".

This is a scarce variety, listed by Facit at SEK 400, but even at that value it is still seldom offered. Furthermore, the stamp has a nearly perfectly centered and complete ÅRE 12 June 1881 cancellation. Outstanding in all respects!

Such attractive and fault-free examples as this one are really scarce -- much scarcer than the catalogs suggest. Facit 2017 value is SEK 2,200 or about $260, for normal quality and SEK 6,000 or about $720 for "top quality". This is an outstanding example, better than any I have had in quite a few years!

537 Fluorescent Paper Variety, Facit 332Av1 [(1958) 5 kronor Palace coil] NH VF SINGLE, with small light bends, of this rare variety. This is one of the rarest, if not the rarest, of a small group of Swedish definitive stamps that had new printings on paper that contained "gold flecks" of fluorescent matter, printed sometime in the late 1960s or early 1970s. These paper varieties were not known to exist until staff members of major Swedish stamp dealer Rolf Gummesson discovered them in the 1980s. By that time, the stamps were no longer in use and these mid-period-of-use printings had long ago been consumed in normal postal use and had subsequently been reprinted again on normal paper. The only mint examples available to philatelists today are those that were by chance purchased by collectors who happened to get them when ordering stamps from the Swedish post office stock list while those printings were current (which I know from my own experience to mean sometime before 1973). The fluorescence consists not of a coating, but of many tiny golden specks embedded in the paper; view under long-wave UV light in a completely dark room. The appearance is both of tiny gold highlights and a general faint yellowish glow. While viewing, compare to other stamps of the time period. (Viewing of used off-paper stamps may not be reliable due to their soaking in water.) This printing of this design is also distinguished by a delicate light greenish blue color and glass-smooth extremely-shiny gum. I am only able to offer examples of this stamp every few years. No stamp dealer seems to have a stock of them; Gummesson located a few examples of this stamp in mint condition, but sold out very quickly. Facit listed this stamp, and most of the few others in this category, for a number of years, but for unexplained reasons dropped the listings some years ago. (However, Facit also does not list many important "whitened paper" varieties of later stamp issues for no good reason.) A rare stamp listed by some of the European catalogs and always strongly sought after. The bends on this example are probably from collector handling and can only be seen from the back of the stamp; most collectors would not have even noticed them; they may flatten out with time. Normally $290 for NH VF.

O4 [1874 6 öre violet Official, Perf 14] NH with Average centering. This is the Bluish Violet color (Facit #TJ4d) which is a bit scarcer than some of the lilac colors even though the catalog values are the same (very few of the early official stamps show variation in catalog value by color even though they really should). While the centering is only Average, that is fairly typical of this issue. Wonderfully fresh and with crisp appearance. Facit 2016 NH value is SEK 5500 ($740)!

A very attractive accent piece; used blocks of the high values are seldom seen. Priced mostly for the right two stamps.

Sweden NH VF Year Sets 1996-1998: Group of three NH VF complete year sets: 1996, 1997, 1998. These are the stamps that would be needed for a Scott album or any other album, or self-made pages, that focuses on singles and not on full strips/panes with duplicating stamp designs (but most of these are in pairs / strips / blocks as appropriate). This is NOT what would be required for a European album such as Stender, Lighthouse, Lindner, Safe, Davo, etc. (The difference is that these sets do not include any duplication of stamp designs, such as from the left vs right side of a pane, as the full official year pack does and is required for the European-made albums. In most case, this means that these year sets have just a couple less stamps than the full official year pack.) These sets DO include a foreign-issued same-design joint-issue stamp, where such exists (not all years). Attractively presented on black Hagner 3-ring stock pages (the good ones, made in England). The three year packs for these years would be $276! Shipping cost is additional for this item.

12a Dark Carmine, "1855 Perforations" [1858 50 öre Coat of Arms] Mint VF, but without gum (typical). Great "1855" perforations (variable tooth size and blind perfs) and incredible color! (The carmine colors, Scott #12a, were perforated on an older machine with many bent or missing teeth, resulting in an irregular perforation appearance. These are referred to as "1855 perforations" in the literature. The machine was replaced in 1865.) The Facit 2015 value (with gum) for the Carmines ranges SEK 6000-8000 (12/14 US$900-1200).

175 [1925 25 öre Gustaf V Profile] NEVER HINGED F-VF with black coil counting number on reverse. Such counting numbers are rarely offered and they are not listed in any catalog; their scarcity suggests that they were only imprinted every 100 stamps or even less often (I do not recall seeing in the literature any confirmation of the frequency in this time period). Facit 2013 value for the plain NH stamp is SEK 450 = US$70!

48 Colors [1886 50 öre Ringtype, with posthorn on back] Group of 7 used stamps, all VF or better centered, with all-different colors/shades and/or papers. The star of this group is a VERY UNUSUAL "SOOTY CARMINE" that I cannot recall previously seeing -- the color does not match any catalog listing I know of and is not represented in the color page from the 1970s/1980s SFT. It is probably a variation of Facit #48e Dark Violetish Carmine, but it is quite unusual.

13 Type II, Facit #14B [1863 3 öre Lion] Used F-VF with neat cancellation. Unusual plate variety: "several breaks / white spots in top frame line, near left corner and above RIG". I have not previously seen this obvious variety or any report of it. I suspect that the cliche was quickly repaired, thus making this variety quite scarce.
