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! Shipping cost is additional for this item.

"SVENSKA BATALJONEN / SAAR" 5 January 1935 postmarks on Scott #119 Type I and 175 [1925 10 öre Lion violet coil; 1925 25 öre dark blue Gustaf V Left Profile] (F-VF) on REGISTERED COVER. COMMERCIAL USE from a battalion member to a branch of Sveriges Riksbank (Swedish Royal Bank) in Gävle, Sweden -- addressed simply to the bank, not to any person, thus extremely likely to be NON-philatelic use. The reverse bears wax seals with the senders monogram as would be the practice when registered mail contained currency, and in fact, under the registry label is a manuscript notation that the envelope contained 100 kr (the postal clerk would have normally actually counted the currency and recorded in the post office record how much was present). A very "ordinary" looking cover which is the beauty of a proper non-philatelic use! (The stamps were first issued in 1925 but were still in common use at this time.) The Swedish Saar Battalion was part of an international peacekeeping force during the Saar Plebiscite, deciding if the Saar area would become part of France or Germany. With only 261 battalion members and less than two months deployed (23 December 1934 through 17 February 1935), any examples are unusual and non-philatelic uses are quite scarce. An outstanding example.

"SVENSKA BATALJONEN / SAAR" 2 February 1935 postmarks on Scott #77, 80, 81, 82, 83, 88, 91 [1910//1918 5, 10, 12, 15, 20, 40, 65 öre Gustaf V In Round Frame] (Fine//VF) on REGISTERED COVER. Overfranked (167 öre total), perhaps consisting of all available values (?) of this issue. Assumed to be philatelic use, but still a spectacular combination franking of this stamp design. Envelope top-back flap missing.

CORRECT POSTAGE RATE (15 öre domestic letter to 20 grams plus 20 öre registry fee). With correct rate, stamps just issued 20 days before, etc., this looks like it could be non-philatelic use.

"SVENSKA BATALJONEN / SAAR" 14 February 1935 postmarks on Scott #B32, B33, B36 [1928 5, 10, and 25 öre Gustaf V 70th Birthday / Cancer Semi-Postals] (VF) on REGISTERED COVER. Franked with 40 öre when only 35 was needed (15 öre domestic letter to 20 grams plus 20 öre registry fee), but that was not unusual with the Cancer semi-postals. Addressed to a Post Assistant in Malmö to a home address, but nobody was home when delivery was attempted, so the cover received a violet 2-line handstamp "Avhämtas å postkontoret..." stating that the letter could be collected at the Malmö 7 branch post office. It is "rare" for Saar covers to bear additional postal markings. The semi-postal issue is always unusual on any type of cover, especially on Saar covers. With the slight over-franking, there is no way we can know if this was philatelic use or if simply a non-philatelic letter to a friend. Mailed on the 14th, just 3 days before the last possible date of the 17th. A simple, clean, correct-looking cover, but with some nice interesting features. The Swedish Saar Battalion was part of an international peacekeeping force during the Saar Plebiscite, deciding if the Saar area would become part of France or Germany. With only 261 battalion members and less than two months deployed (23 December 1934 through 17 February 1935), any examples are unusual. Very attractive!

"SVENSKA BATALJONEN / SAAR" 9 February 1935 postmark on Scott #241 [1935 15 öre sheet/bklt stamp Riksdagen (Parliament) 500th] (F-VF) on attractive cover with CORRECT POSTAGE RATE (15 öre domestic letter to 20 grams). Bears very clear violet, 2-line handstamp "Zur Erinnerung an Die Abftimmung / im Saargebiet am 13. Januar 1935" (A reminder of the vote in the Saar region on 13 January 1935). I have not previously seen an example of this handstamp and I am not sure why this handstamp would be on a February cover, but it does make it a very special cover. With correct rate, stamp just issued 30 days before, addressed to a woman, etc., this looks like it could be non-philatelic use. A simple, clean, correct-looking cover. The Swedish Saar Battalion was part of an international peacekeeping force during the Saar Plebiscite, deciding if the Saar area would become part of France or Germany.

"SVENSKA BATALJONEN / SAAR" 16 February 1935 postmark on Scott #244 [1935 15 öre coil Riksdagen (Parliament) 500th] (F-VF) on attractive Saar picture post card ("Saarbrucken Winterbergdenkmal"). The 15 öre franking overpays the applicable domestic rate (10 öre domestic post card), but is the correct rate for a foreign post card, which the sender may have had in mind. The card has a simple one-word message (Greetings) and could certainly be non-philatelic use. Canceled on the penultimate day of this postal service. This is one of only two Saar Battalion post cards I can recall having in 46 years. The Swedish Saar Battalion was part of an international peacekeeping force during the Saar Plebiscite, deciding if the Saar area would become part of France or Germany.

The 25 öre franking overpays the applicable domestic rate (15 öre domestic letter to 20 grams), but is the correct rate for a foreign letter to 20 grams, which the sender may have had in mind. This stamp is very scarce on cover; Facit 2020 value is SEK 450 for a ordinary cover use. A very simple and clean, ordinary looking cover that could certainly be non-philatelic use.

"SVENSKA BATALJONEN / SAAR" 23 January 1935 postmark on Scott #240 [1935 10 öre sheet/booklet stamp Riksdagen (Parliament) 500th] (F-VF) on attractive Saar picture post card (a beautiful castle tower: "Mettlach (Saar). Alter Turm"). 10 öre is CORRECT FRANKING for the domestic post card rate. This stamp is somewhat scarce on cover or card. The card bears a message stating that the sender has sent 2 letters, 2 korsband (printed matter; likely newspapers), and 2 view cards. This is likely to be non-philatelic use; non-philatelic January uses are quite a bit scarcer. This is one of only two Saar Battalion post cards I can recall having in 46 years. The Swedish Saar Battalion was part of an international peacekeeping force during the Saar Plebiscite, deciding if the Saar area would become part of France or Germany.

"SVENSKA BATALJONEN / SAAR" 13 January 1935 postmark on Scott #239-247 COMPLETE SET [1935 Riksdagen (Parliament) 500th complete set] (Fine, F-VF, VF) on attractive cover. It should be noted that 13 January covers exist with a backdated cancellation, but those have a straight-top "3" of 13 in the day -- this has the correct rounded-top "3" of 13 in the day. While there is certainly no doubt that this is a philatelic use, it is possible that this is actually a first day use of this set of stamps in Saar -- it likely took that long for the stamps to reach these soldiers. These stamps were issued on 10 January in Sweden -- I have not recorded use of this stamp issue earlier than 13 January in Saar; please let me know if you are aware of any earlier uses. The fact that an entire set was used supports the idea that this may be a Saar-use FDC. The Swedish Saar Battalion was part of an international peacekeeping force during the Saar Plebiscite, deciding if the Saar area would become part of France or Germany. With only 261 battalion members and less than two months deployed (23 December 1934 through 17 February 1935), any examples are unusual. Very attractive!

"SVENSKA BATALJONEN / SAAR" 18 January 1935 postmark on an unusual combination of 10 stamps including the watermarked Scott #212 with a SUPERBLY CENTERED CANCELLATION, from six different issues, on attractive cover. The watermark of the UPU Kongress 10 öre, Scott #212, can be seen by holding the cover up to a strong light while looking through from the inside to the front -- it is very clear. This watermarked stamp in this centering (with a normal cancel) would be about $50 off-cover, but with a Superb cancel about $100, and with a Superb SAAR cancellation, who knows what it could achieve! The price of this cover is essentially the price of this single, off-cover stamp with this cancellation. Either this was philatelic or the sender was just having fun. The Swedish Saar Battalion was part of an international peacekeeping force during the Saar Plebiscite, deciding if the Saar area would become part of France or Germany.

"SVENSKA BATALJONEN / SAAR" 16 February 1935 postmark directly on the cover (not on any stamps), with 8 different 1927//1934 SAAR STAMPS in the range Scott #120//144. The Saar stamps are canceled two days later on 18 February at "MERZIG (SAAR)" with tourism-promotion cancellation pitching "Romantic Saar". I guess with the civil strife settled down a bit and the next war still a couple years away, it was time to go to a nice bed and breakfast place in Saarland. 17 February was the last day of the Swedish postal operations in Saar. I am not sure why this had the Swedish postal marking, but no Swedish stamps, and then two days later received the Saar postal markings on Saar stamps. This is the only example I can recall seeing in 46 years of a Swedish Saar Battalion postal marking on a cover that was actually apparently carried out via the Saar postal service instead of the Swedish military postal service. The cover is a bit wrinkled if you look closely, as if somebody was carrying it in their rucksack. I cannot prove anything, but my sense of it is that this is a genuine non-philatelic use -- however I could be very wrong. The Swedish Saar Battalion was part of an international peacekeeping force during the Saar Plebiscite, deciding if the Saar area would become part of France or Germany.

"SVENSKA BATALJONEN / SAAR" 15 February 1935 postmarks on the complete coil set of six different 500th Anniversary of Swedish Parliament (Riksdagen) stamps, Scott #242-7. Affixed to a piece of local stationery "Merzip-Saar" and neatly individually canceled with VF or better strikes. The Swedish Saar Battalion was part of an international peacekeeping force during the Saar Plebiscite, deciding if the Saar area would become part of France or Germany. We know that there were at least a couple philatelists in the Swedish contingent; fortunately as they created some interesting items that would otherwise not exist. With only 261 battalion members and less than two months deployed, any examples are unusual. Very dramatic and interesting! These cancellations would fetch $12-15 each if cut into six pieces.

The back bears an untied 4-strip of 1929 "Swedische Messe / Gotenburg" labels; it is possible that the labels were already in use in 1924 to promote this exposition, but this would be the earliest use I have seen (or maybe they were added later?) -- they have not influenced the price.

The reply card is unused, but has Scott #119 Type I affixed (undoubtedly by the original sender) to pay the return postage at the regular post card rate (the respondent was to write text, thus the reply would not qualify for the printed matter rate). The card is a solicitation by a children charity and is an early example of such mail; it could also fit into a charity seal collection. While postal stationery double / reply cards are quite common, this is the first Swedish example I can recall seeing (in 44 years) of non-stationery with reply postage affixed. Very scarce!

STOCKHOLM straight-line Type 3 cancel, used 1752-1770, (VF) on very attractive private folded letter, no contents, probably to Jonköping. Has penciled 1756 date on reverse, perhaps from an archival source. Addressed in an archaic, very difficult to read hand, but starts out "Royal Majesty...", probably to a government official (not the king himself). Very nice quality with neat black wax seal. Facit Postal VIII (2009) value SEK 1200 = $190 for normal quality. This is nicer!

13 Light Yellowish Brown [1862 3 öre Lion, Type II (1863)] SUPERB PAIR on 8 July 1872 PRINTED MATTER rate folded letter front-only. Archival crease, not affecting the stamps. The stamps are of an unusual color and Superb centering is really quite scarce for this issue. Off cover, the Superb pair of this color would sell for $50. (Note that this is just a front, not the full cover.) Priced only as the used pair of stamps! Beautiful.

58 [1891 10 öre Engraved Oscar] (VF) on 14 August 1908 picture post card (photo scene from town of Säfsjö) to the U.S., with RAILWAY cancellation "PKXP. No 2 A. INR. U.", Danish transit postmark (unusual on mail to the U.S.), and red U.S. New York "DEFICIENCY / IN / ADDRESS / SUPPLIED / BY / NYPO - I.D." handstamp. The so-called deficiency is that somebody could not read "Mass" as the state, even though it was right there. What makes this card especially interesting is that it is a HAND-DRAWN DIVIDED BACK card. Prior to 1 October 1907 divided back cards to the U.S. were charged at the letter rate. This sender was utilizing an earlier undivided-back card, dividing the back so that a message could be written without obscuring the picture on the other side. I do not recall previously seeing a Swedish hand-drawn divided-back card. This is an important type of item in the time line of the postal history of Swedish post cards.

J15 [1922 10 øre Green Postage Due] (VF) tied by 26 July 1922 KJØBENHAVN cancellation on 24 July picture post card posted aboard the Swedish naval ship H.M.S. SVERIGE (apparently near Båstad, Sweden, at the time). There appears to have been a stamp affixed and canceled at lower right, but it must have quickly come off; there is a Swedish octagonal-boxed "T." handstamp, a blue manuscript Danish "10", and the Danish postage due stamp. If there had been a stamp that had fallen off, this should not have been rated as postage due.

J15 [1922 10 øre Green Postage Due] (F-VF) tied by 25 September 1923 "KJØBENHAVN N." cancellation on 24 September (nice Swedish text-machine Gothenburg Exposition cancellation) underpaid envelope franked with 15 öre Sweden Scott #167 (or maybe 189?? Ha!). Swedish boxed "T 10 õre" (somewhat unusual) handstamp, blue manuscript Danish "10", and the Danish postage due stamp. The correct postage rate was 20 öre, thus the shortage was doubled. There was no return address, thus it could not be returned to sender for additional payment.

No Swedish postage due markings, thus was probably mailed on the ferry or train between Hälsingborg, Sweden, and Helsingør, Denmark. Blue manuscript Danish "20 T", and the Danish postage due stamp.

Iceland #117 [1920 15 aur Christian X, still in active use at the time] (F-VF) on 7 July 1934 Icelandic picture post card (real photo of Leif Ericsson statue) mailed aboard and WITHIN the SWEDISH cruise ship M/S Kungsholm, as it crossed the Arctic Circle, presumably after most recently having visited Iceland. Small spot near top. Canceled and handstamped with the seemingly full range (five different) of the official postal cancellations and handstamps available in the ship post office. Though I have handled hundreds of Kungsholm covers mailed at sea around the world, this is the first in 38 years that I can recall being mailed WITHIN the ship and probably one of less than five that have borne Icelandic stamps or markings.
