Collections: Scandinavia: Sweden  
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.

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!

Sweden Collection Balance 1858-1979 in Scott Specialty Album: Substantial collection balance of over 775 different, mint and used 1858-1979 stamps, on Scott Specialty pages in green 2-inch 2-post Scott Specialty binder. This starts with a nice representation of the 19th century including Scott #6, 8-12, 24-27, etc., followed by a modest selection of early 20th century. Next is a strong range of mint 1951-1979 issues with many mint commemorative sets, some LH, but much NH, and then the collection concludes with a useful back-of-book section. Quality varies greatly as usual in the earliest issues; the 20th century is virtually all F-VF or better, with the mint 1951-1979 period all VF. The 2-inch binder is gold stamped "SCANDINAVIA / FINLAND" on the spine. The pages and binder are in fair condition -- some folks would be happy to continue using them while others would choose to replace them. The Scott 2019 retail value totals well over $1850! You should be able to remove many numbers from your want list with this one!

Sweden Collection Balance / Remainder -- High Catalog Value with lots of Colors and Cancels: An interesting balance / remainder of a Swedish collection on Scott Specialty pages. When this came to me there had already been stamps removed by the previous owner and then I removed a few more that caught my interest (but I certainly did NOT remove everything of value). There is still a lot left to recommend this collection, at the correct price. The stamps run from 1855 to the mid-1930s, including extensive Postage Dues and Officials: Scott #2//192, J1//J22, and O1//25. (There are NO semi-postals, airmails, or stamps after Scott #192.) In the early stamps, there are a LOT of high catalog value stamps with DEFECTS (often hidden) -- it is obvious that the original collector was more interested in the variations, colors, postmarks, etc., than seeking out perfect stamps. The identification (perforation, watermark, etc.) of the stamps is 98% correct, which is unusual (I have NOT counted any that were not correctly identified). There are some complete and readable TOWN CANCELLATIONS and many others not well centered, but from identifiable small towns and villages. There are many COLOR VARIATIONS. In total there are about 495 stamps.The total Scott 2020 catalog value is approximately $2563, but of course Scott value is for VF stamps in undamaged quality. This is a great Sweden starter collection for the person who wants a lot of catalog value for a low price; for the person who wants to fill in a lot of early spaces and is not overly concerned about quality; or for the person who seeks color varieties and postmarks more so than quality. I am probably making this sound worse than it is, but I just do not want to mislead anybody. The price is certainly right!

Sweden NH Selection 1960s To Late 1990s BELOW FACE VALUE: Somewhat disorganized selection of NH VF Swedish stamps ranging from the 1960s to the late 1990s. A few hundred stamps in singles, pairs, blocks, strips, etc. There is some "duplication" but if you like pairs, strips, and blocks, then most will not be duplicates. Commemoratives and definitives, including many engraved by Slania. There are a few items with bends, bu they have NOT been counted at all. Face value of the NH VF stamps in excellent quality is about SEK 1520 which currently is about $180 -- again, that is only for NH VF stamps. If you do not need all the stamps in the group, you can trade them or sell those off, or send them to a friend in Sweden to use as postage. Regardless of the price, this is offered at a small fraction of retail value.

Sweden Commemorative Cancellation Cover Collection 1946-1961 (320 Different Covers): Four cover albums containing approximately 320 covers bearing special commemorative (often pictorial) cancellations between 1946 and 1961. Though not complete, this group comprises the majority (I would guess 80-90%) of the commemorative cancellations of the period. Unlike most such types of covers, these do appear to have been actually mailed with the majority of them to Switzerland, including a couple forwarded showing Swiss markings. The vast majority are cute, very small-size covers, about 4.25 x 2.75 inches. There is a tremendous range of topics represented by the cancellations (and the stamps), including sports, skiing, medical, scouting, philately, railway, music, etc., etc., etc. When seen in dealer boxes at stamp shows these are often priced at $1-5 each, and often with higher prices for some topics. This is a terrific basis for a collection or even for individual resale to thematic collectors. Priced at less than 50 cents each!

Sweden METAL Handstamp Town Postmarks on 1996-97 Covers: Starting early in 1996, Swedish postmarking dramatically changed to virtually all mail being canceled at (then) 19 regional "Postterminal" centers. Only some letters handed to postal clerks were postmarked at local post offices. Suddenly small town and village postmarks became "rare". Additionally, use of small-size envelopes is very limited -- perhaps less than 5% of all mail. Of a large archive of small-size envelopes I purchased, fewer than 5% were handstamped and only half of those were readable (net is less than 1% of all mail). This offer is for 50 DIFFERENT METAL TOWN POSTMARKS on 1996-97 covers with the then-current animal series. ALL covers are small-size and neat, with readable to superb postmarks.
