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.

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 1858-1976 Collection Balance in Lindner Albums: 1858-1976 Balance of a substantial collection, about 700 different plus some minor duplication, mint and used. On Lindner-T hingeless pages in 3 padded wine red 18-ring Lindner binders. The older issues are mostly used; from 1949 onward all mint with many complete commemorative sets and with most of the later issues NH. Much of the "duplication" is actually for early color shade varieties and for booklet issues represented (per the album) by pairs or right and left halves. As to be expected, there are a few minor quality problems in the early issues, but overall quality is generally F-VF or better with the mint post-WWII issues virtually all VF. Scott 2017 retail totals over $2325 (19th century $1425+ and 20 century $900+). The Lindner pages and binders are in excellent, very gently used condition; they would retail new for about $800! I get a lot of requests for Lindner albums. (It appears that one page for the 1920s Lion issues is missing; Lindner can supply individual pages.) A worthwhile base for a Sweden collection, well suited for continuation and expansion in its present housing!

Sweden 1858-1994 Collection in Scott Specialty Album (1855-2013): Collection of about 1725 different 1858-1994 stamps and souvenir sheets, mint and used, neatly mounted in Scott Specialty album. Better than usual quality and centering: Older issues are F-VF or VF; from 1931 onward, virtually all are VF. The 1981-1994 period is all mint, lightly hinged, and appears to need just a few definitive issue stamps for completion of that era. While some of the older used stamps have been removed, there are still strong runs of issues, many complete sets, lots and lots of great, useful stamps. The Scott 2.5-inch 2-post binder is in excellent, gently used condition and has a Scott "SWEDEN" label affixed. The like-new Scott pages are complete, from 1855 through 2013, including back of the book pages. Supplements can be obtained from Scott if you want to continue. Scott 2018 retail totals over $1900, of which over $1140 of that is in the mint 1981-1994 issues. A very clean and neat collection, well suited for continuation in this album.

Sweden Collection Balance 1858-2000 in Stender Albums (1855-2016): Balance of a substantial Sweden collection, containing over 1100 different (not counting different perforation sides on booklet stamps) 1858-2000 stamps, mint and used. Earlier mostly used; later mostly mint, with much NH. Many sets have both the right and left sides of the booklet stamps, as Swedish stamps are typically collected; some arranged as singles, others as intact pairs, and there are also a few complete booklet panes. More well filled in the 1891-1980 period; scattered stamps before and after. A considerable amount of the value is in the Mint 1940s-1960 and NH 1960-1988 issues. With the exception of a couple of classics (not counted in the value), quality is virtually all at least F-VF or better with a very high percentage VF (and certainly the post-1940 stamps are virtually all VF). Neatly mounted, with the mint stamps in black Showgard mounts, on Stender PAGES WHICH ARE COMPLETE 1855-2016 (through the 2016 supplement -- subsequent supplements are available directly from me). The pages and mounts are in nice condition, thus the collection COULD BE CONTINUED IN THIS ALBUM. The album binders are of three different types/eras: early is in the traditional pre-1980s yellow and blue Stender Sweden binder (now scarce, but still sought by some folks); the middle section is in a generic brown Stender binder; the final binder is the latest version of the BLUE Deluxe/Superb binder. The album pages alone would cost over $200 if purchased new! SPECIAL OFFER NUMBER ONE: For $90 (normally $113 and about to increase) I can replace the first TWO binders with new blue Deluxe/Superb binders that match the new-looking third binder. NUMBER TWO: If you choose Number One, for an additional $85 (normally $97.50 and about to increase) I can add THREE matching blue dust covers / slip cases. NUMBER THREE: You can get a 10% BONUS on purchases of more Swedish stamps by paying (at time of ordering this collection) any additional amount between $200 and $3000 and you will receive a merchandise credit of that amount plus 10% more, for your future purchases of Swedish stamps from JSA. While this is a collection remainder (many stamps removed), the stamps that are present are very nice and this would serve as an excellent base for future expansion or for starting a Swedish collection.

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.

Sweden 1996 Cover Lot: 18-Inch Stack: Huge group of Swedish ca.1996 SMALL-SIZE domestic covers sent by individuals to contests operated by newspapers. Tightly packed, this is an approximately 18-inch high stack! That is approximately 900 covers. The covers have all been extremely neatly opened and the contents removed (thus the stack is ALL covers, not contents; that is unusual for contest mail). There is very little variety of stamps; the vast majority of the covers are franked with just two or three different stamps in the then-current Animals series. The catch is that virtually all of the covers have indistinct cancels that do not easily show the full town name. While many are from a wide range of small towns/villages, it will take some work to determine the town/village names for some of them (and the majority will never be known). In this time period, the majority of postmarks were machine cancellations of several different types and regional centers (the regional cancels are actively collected for their different pictorial designs). However, some in this lot are the traditional small-town/village hand cancellations -- if you can determine the name. While having this many SMALL-SIZE covers in one pile may make them look common, this is not normal for Sweden; most of their covers tend to be larger size. It does not look like there is a single junky cover in the lot! If you enjoy a challenge, you will love this lot! You only need to pick out a couple dozen useful covers to make this lot worthwhile. Priced at LESS THAN A PENNY PER COVER; the stamps on the covers are worth much more than that! Please be sure you have carefully read this description. Only shipped within the U.S.
