O20 (VF) [20 öre Blue perf 13 Official] on 1906 cover to the U.S. A remarkable INCORRECT AND/OR ILLEGAL USAGE of a Swedish Official stamp. These stamps were not valid on mail outside of Sweden (except sometimes to Denmark or Norway). The address and handwriting shows every indication of being "emmigrant mail". Also there is no return address and the Halmstad Lbr cancellation indicates that the letter was deposited in an letter box, typical for emmigrant mail. There are stick-pin holes in the cover and a manuscript number in the lower left corner, perhaps suggesting that it was attached to paperwork as part of an investigation of the mailing. Much emmigrant mail of the era was sent unpaid (without return address) because the American cousins could supposedly better afford to pay the postage. Quite remarkable and the only such example I have seen in 29 years.
