Collections: Scandinavia: Scandinavia  
I am constantly buying large and small collections and have built up quite a stock of nice, clean Scandinavian country collections. If you are considering getting into a new area and would like a "starter collection" (whether small or large), let me know about your interest. Also, if you are seeking used binders or used empty albums to match what you currently have, again, let me know. Here are a few samples of collections. The listings below are included by happenstance. If you are seeking a particular country or type of material, please let me know. Payment plans are available. I guarantee your satisfaction.

Due to the low prices, variations in weight, and different mailing methods, distances, and destinations, shipping cost varies and is additional for items in the Specials Collections listings unless otherwise mentioned. When ordering please include a note in the shopping cart comments section indicating if you prefer faster/costlier or slower/cheaper delivery so that I may more quickly quote the shipping costs and options for you.

Collections and lots are not normally sent on approval. If you have questions about an item, please inquire before ordering. Special return and refund limitations typically apply to such items. Please see the "Order Info" page for details.

Each item is one of a kind; orders will be filled in order of receipt. Payment by MasterCard or Visa suggested, but I will hold items for 10 days pending receipt of check if you prefer.

SLANIA-ENGRAVED Collection Balance Including Literature: Extensive mounted collection balance of over 500 different stamps, souvenir sheets, and booklets, engraved Czeslaw Slania. Mostly Mint (virtually all Mint are NH), but some used. Virtually all VF. Heaviest in Scandinavia with strong representation of Denmark, Faroe, and Sweden, with numerous other countries also represented. Includes better items such as Sweden Scott #1351a, the booklet of four 50 kr Gyrfalcon, and the 2000 "1000th Slania postage stamp engraving" souvenir sheet. There have been stamps removed, thus we call this a collection "balance". The collection is mounted, mostly with neat stamp mounts, on computer generated album pages which contain a great deal of useful information and many highly enlarged illustrations, but you will probably want to remount the stamps into your own album because the owner also added personalized comments about his own collecting. Also included is the Harold Short "Engraving Art of Czeslaw Slania" 2001 edition which lists all the stamps to that point as well as private prints, the Boxers, stamp cards, commercial engraving work, etc., plus various other informational articles. A wonderful jump-start toward this popular collecting area, or a useful addition to an existing Slania collection... at a great price! [Contained in large, but ordinary, 3-ring binder. Shipping cost would be slightly less without the binder if you prefer the binder to be omitted.]


SLANIA-ENGRAVED Small Collection Balance: Collection balance ("balance" means that somebody has removed some stamps) of well over 700 Slania-engraved stamp and souvenir sheets, mint (mostly NH) and used. Nearly all VF. Over 500 are different, with modest duplication (mint and used of some issues accounts for part of the duplication; otherwise the duplicates are inexpensive and do not affect the overall value). Strongest in Scandinavia and Poland, including much Denmark, Faroe, Iceland, and Greenland -- however NO Sweden. Plus other countries represented include France, Great Britain, Monaco, U.S., and UN. Arrange on black stock pages with clear pockets so that all the Slania engravings are fully displayed. A nice introduction to the art of this master engraver, and a suitable start for an expanding collection of this ever-popular topic! [The pages are in an ordinary 3-ring binder which does not have to be mailed if you do not need it; omitting the binder might reduce the mailing cost.]


Scandinavia Collection to 1979 in Scott Specialty Albums: Collection of about 2250 different to 1979, mint and used, nearly mounted on Scott Specialty pages in two serviceable green 2-post binders (one inscribed Scandinavia, the other says Germany). All 8 countries all time periods represented. The strongest countries are Denmark (548), Finland (461), Norway (439), and Sweden (532). There is considerable value in NH commemorative sets of the 1960s-70s. Quality varies: there are some scattered minor faults, mostly in the 19th Century; overall quality is mostly F-VF or better with much VF in the later issues. Scott 2016 retail well exceeds $2900 (Denmark $950+, Finland $400+, Norway $675+, Sweden $475+, etc). A pleasing collection well suited for continuation in these albums.
