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 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 1948-1982 NH Collection Balance on Scott Specialty Page Set (1855-1986): Collection balance of about 315 different, all NH VF, from 1948-1952. Neatly mounted with black Showgard mounts on a clean and fully usable set of Scott Specialty pages (two rectangular holes) that runs complete 1855-1986. Includes some complete commemorative sets and many of the booklet stamps are in pairs, as the Swedes collect them. There are some empty mounts where stamps had previously been removed. While not comprehensive, what is present is pristine and uniformly NH VF! Scott 2018 retail totals $317.30. This is also a sought after page set in excellent quality and would easily fetch $30 without any stamps.

Sweden 1855-1994 Scott Specialty Album With Stamps: Depending upon how you think about it, this is either an album with some stamps OR a small collection in a very nice album. Sweden Scott Specialty album with Specialty pages complete from the beginning in 1855 to 1994; the pages are in excellent condition. Contained in a like-new (really sharp looking with bright imprinting) Scott Specialty 2.5-inch 2-post binder; the binder is gold stamped "SCANDINAVIA / FINLAND" on the spine. Contains some stamps in very neat black Showgard-style mounts, including some NH stamps from the 1970s and 1980s. There are some empty mounts. The older used stamps were not counted in the evaluation. The price is based on $49 for the stamps (guaranteed to be a great value) and $39 for the album (which is probably much too low). This is an excellent buy for anyone seeking an nice housing for their 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 Picture Post Card Accumulation: Large group of 1960s-1970s picture post cards, about 185 cards. Most mint, but some used (the used have had their stamps removed). Plus three fold-out picture booklets. Wide variety of card images including LOTS OF TRAINS, canals and canal boats, art, cartoons, cities, etc. A very nice group either for the cards themselves or as accents to help illustrate a stamp or postal history collection.
