Sweden: Seals: Various Charity Seals  
The term "seals" generally refers to "Charity Seals", which as a broad term includes Christmas Seals. Charity seals are typically fundraising seals issued by organizations, just as Christmas Seals, but not associated with Christmas. There have been a wide range of Charity Seals issued in Sweden, but, other than Christmas Seals, Swedish Charity Seals are far less often seen than from Denmark and many other countries. There are many Swedish Charity Seals that I know to exist, but which I have never seen, or of which I have only seen one or two examples in 46 years. Used examples are usually quite scarce and seals used (tied by postmark) on cover or card are extremely scarce.

All items are available for viewing on approval. I do have much more material in this category; this website only shows a small sample. Even if the items you seek are not currently listed, please tell me about your interests so that I may advise you when they become available.

"Jernvägsmännens Helnykterhets Förbund / PERSONALENS VÄL!" (Railway Personnel Temperence Wellness Society) charity seal picturing locomotive with coal tender, railway light, and railway flags. Light green on white paper. Mint XF, hinged, from lower right corner of sheet (with straight edges). I have previously seen an example of this seal, but it seems to be very scarce and I have not been able to find any references for it. Based on the appearance and the language use, I believe it dates from the 1890s-1910. This is the only example I have recorded having in 46 years. An important item for a railway thematic collection.

"SVENSKA UNDERBEFÄLETS RIKSFÖRBUND" (Swedish Military Officers Royal Society) and "FÖR VETANDE OCH UPPLYSNING" (for knowledge and understanding). This society seems to be for the training and education of mid-level military officers. I believe this to be a charity seal, perhaps purchased by the membership, but it could also be a label. Yellow frame and some parts of the design, blue center design and text. Yellowish-white paper. Pictures allegorical "lady of knowledge" giving knowledge understanding to a young officer. Tiny "249 in bottom margin; perhaps the 249th design of the printer. Mint F-VF. In 46 years, I have not previously seen an example of this seal and I have not been able to find any reference to it. Based on the appearance, I believe it dates from around 1910. This is the only example I have recorded having in 46 years.
