Sweden: Bargains: Stamps - Scott #1-16  
These bargain-priced stamps are attractive, but most have lesser centering or perhaps hidden flaws. You can save a tremendous amount of money when you add such stamps to your collection. Each stamp is one of a kind, so please let me know if I may substitute a different example (that looks as good or better, for the same cost) if the stamp you order has sold. If you have any doubts, all are available for approval viewing. This is just a small sampling, thus if you are seeking stamps of this quality and price level from any of the Scandinavian countries, just send along your want list -- I will be happy to send bargains on approval. Scott numbers have been used unless otherwise stated.

1 [1855 3 Skilling Banco] FIRST STAMP OF SWEDEN. Used with typical Average-Fine centering, but with expertly done repairs that most people would not be able to detect, and a couple slightly shorter perf tips at top. There is a very faint brownish line just barely showing through to the front from ink transfer from the original mailpiece. Otherwise completely genuine. Neat and crisp STOCKHOLM 23 April 1958 cancellation. WONDERFUL INTENSE COLOR! The vast majority of #1 on the market are either damaged or repaired (even if not so described). Facit 2018 value for sound examples is SEK 45,000 = $5850! This is a nice looking example at a very reasonable price. Accompanied by 2018 Jay Smith certificate with "lifetime guarantee".

2, 1868 Official Reprint. [1855 4 skilling banco blue Coat of Arms] Mint F-VF centered example, but gum that is either disturbed (probably) or regummed. These are typically found without gum. Lower left corner perforation tooth rounded and two very slightly shorter perforation teeth. This is Type "g" (of the nine types of the 4 sk reprints). There were two reprintings in 1868; they differ only very slightly in appearance and are hard to separate. Between the two printings, a total of 1885 reprints were printed, of those only 209 were Type "g". Assuming the more common of the two 1868 reprintings, the Facit 2020 value is SEK 4000! Very attractive and fresh looking.

Scott Classic #2e, Facit #2j2 [1855 4 skilling banco, Grayish Ultramarine] Used with centering that is technically Average (very typical for this color), but has a much better overall appearance. Crisp CARLST(AD) 21 September 185? cancellation (this printing issued September 1857). Much better and more clear impression than usual. Has the horizontal banding (almost as if laid paper) that is typical for this printing. Very attractive and very reasonably priced. Facit 2020 value SEK 4500!

4 Orange [1855 8 skilling banco] Used with Fine centering (just clears at top). Extremely thin paper -- it is amazing that this delicate stamp has survived 165 years! Under magnification, traces of original gum can even be seen. Has a couple blunted perfs and a short perf at lower left, but overall the perforations are much better than typically seen. Neat cancellation and unusually strong and bright color. A proper example that has not been altered or "improved" in any way.

7 [1858 9 öre Coat of Arms] Used VF+ centered example with wonderful perfectly upright and fully dated 8 January 1864 FALKÖPING postmark, but just slightly off to the right. Faint corner crease, not visible from front (otherwise would easily sell for $375). Beautiful appearance of a stamp that is not often seen with such a nice postmark.

7 [1858 9 öre Coat of Arms] Used with F-VF centering. This issue is usually found damaged or "improved", but this example has no defects whatsoever -- it is just "enthusiastically canceled". Nice centering for the issue, excellent dark lilac color, perfect perforations, and complete, upright STOCKHOLM 12 May 1868 cancellation. This would easily fetch $190 if the cancellation were lighter.

12a Dark Carmine, "1855 Perforations" [1858 50 öre Coat of Arms] Mint VF, but without gum (typical). Great "1855" perforations (variable tooth size and blind perfs) and incredible color! (The carmine colors, Scott #12a, were perforated on an older machine with many bent or missing teeth, resulting in an irregular perforation appearance. These are referred to as "1855 perforations" in the literature. The machine was replaced in 1865.) The Facit 2015 value (with gum) for the Carmines ranges SEK 6000-8000 (12/14 US$900-1200). Very pretty!

15 [1866 17 öre GRAY Lion] Used with F-VF appearance, but has been reperforated (but not repaired). Very well centered STOCKHOLM cancellation and an additional red postmark that is probably a London PAID transit handstamp (this stamp was typically used on mail leaving the country). Would otherwise be about $600 for this centering. Quite attractive and offered at a very low price for such a nice looking example.
