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.

"Jernvägsmännens Helnykterhets Förbund / PERSONALENS VÄL!" (Railway Personnel Temperence Wellness Society) charity seal picturing locomotive with coal tender, railway light, and railway flags. Light green on white paper. Mint XF, hinged, from lower right corner of sheet (with straight edges). I have previously seen an example of this seal, but it seems to be very scarce and I have not been able to find any references for it. Based on the appearance and the language use, I believe it dates from the 1890s-1910. This is the only example I have recorded having in 46 years. An important item for a railway thematic collection.

"SVENSKA UNDERBEFÄLETS RIKSFÖRBUND" (Swedish Military Officers Royal Society) and "FÖR VETANDE OCH UPPLYSNING" (for knowledge and understanding). This society seems to be for the training and education of mid-level military officers. I believe this to be a charity seal, perhaps purchased by the membership, but it could also be a label. Yellow frame and some parts of the design, blue center design and text. Yellowish-white paper. Pictures allegorical "lady of knowledge" giving knowledge understanding to a young officer. Tiny "249 in bottom margin; perhaps the 249th design of the printer. Mint F-VF. In 46 years, I have not previously seen an example of this seal and I have not been able to find any reference to it. Based on the appearance, I believe it dates from around 1910. This is the only example I have recorded having in 46 years.

1912 Stockholm Olympic Games label (poster stamp) with SWEDISH TEXT ("OLYMPISKA SPELEN"). NH with VF centering, but typical short perforations. Unusual variety: The beige ink of the skin areas is instead brown. This was likely either contamination of the ink on the press or poorly mixed ink. I have not previously encountered and example of this color variation. While Swedish is one of the more common languages (English and German are the most common), the color variety is quite exceptional.

1912 Stockholm Olympic Games label (poster stamp) with PORTUGUESE TEXT ("JOGOS OLYMPICOS"). NH with Superb centering and perfect perforations (scarce thus). There is a faint gum bend which is hardly worth mentioning. Unusual variety: There is an orange "+" (hard to see) registration mark in the white area at upper right, to the right of the raised hand. It is rare for a printer to put a registration mark within a printed design. I have never seen this before (on any language of label), but with a sheet size of 81, I probably have not seen enough examples. While this is supposedly not a scarce language, I have only seen a couple Portuguese examples in the last 46 years.

Mini collection of 10 Swedish revenue stamps, ranging from 1878 to 1930s, representing five different designs and four different types of revenue stamps/taxes: (from top left) Securities Transfer (3), Bank and Foreign Exchange (1), Assignment Fee (1), and Documentary general use (5) -- notice that the first two Documentary stamps (middle row, right two) vary greatly in perforation and paper. The Facit value for the most common types of these particular stamps totals SEK 425, but there are various color, paper, watermark, perforation, and printing plate differences that Facit does not individually list. A nice general representation.

Royal Air Defense Society ("Riks Luftskydds Förbundet") 10 öre in red, blue, and black. Soldier holding shield against formation of airplanes. Denomination and text in white. Small format, design 17 x 22 mm. Perforation 11. NH VF SHEET OF 50 (10 columns x 5 rows). Has irrelevant small ink stain on lower right corner of selvage; otherwise perfect quality. In 38 years I can only recall seeing one or two mint with-gum singles of this label, perhaps 5-10 no-gum singles, and one or two canceled singles. I do not recall ever seeing an example on cover (untied or tied). If I had a NH VF single of this label, I would price it at $5, making the break-up value of this sheet $250! And I certainly have never seen anything as stunning as this sheet! An important Swedish WWII-era artifact that helps illustrate one of the reasons why the Germans bypassed Sweden.

200 kr Blue. Used F-VF+ on piece with 20 kronor of previous "1895" design (the earlier design was in use into the 1960s). The very faint cancellation date appears to be 1968, the year of issue of the Slania-design issue and an appropriate date for such a combination. Despite an expected transition period from one design to the other, I can only recall seeing a couple examples of such combinations. Scarce!

1949 March 4 souvenir card of "Nordiska Postkonferensen i Stockholm" (Nordic Postal Congress in Stockholm; the precursor to the current "Norden" organization which is also considered a forerunner to Europa) Middag (mid day meal) luncheon menu. Franked with Sweden Scott #66 [1903 5 kr Stockholm Post Office] and #C8c [1942 20 kr Swans airmail, Perf 4-sides] canceled 4 March 1949. The card lists the delegates: the top executives of the Nordic post offices and airlines. The card was officially printed by the Swedish post offices. This example is the only one I have seen or recorded in 33 years. A rare item; probably few more than 37 (the number of delegates) originally existed -- perhaps less than 5 may still exist today and most of those may be in postal archives.

Stockholmia 1974 souvenir card with five Swedish test stamps (provfrimärken) affixed, one from each of five stamp engravers: "Womans head, Miranda from The Tempest by Shakespeare" coil stamp in green, engraved by Sven Ewert; "Uppsala Cathedral" coil stamp in blue, by Czeslaw Slania; "Snurra" (rotating design) multi-colored coil stamp by Majvor Franzén; "Head with Background (geometric shapes)" coil stamp in magenta by Albert Jorpes; and "The Drottningholm Theater" coil stamp in brown by Zlatko Jakus. All five stamps are on various types of fluorescent paper. All five stamps, as coil versions, were only released to the public on this souvenir card; these coil versions are different stamps than other-format stamps sometimes seen. This card exists on greenish gray whitish fluorescent or brownish gray non-fluorescent stock. Versions of this souvenir card exist with the Miranda stamp in either blue or green; this version bears the GREEN MIRANDA stamp and is GREENISH GRAY WHITISH FLUORESCENT CARD STOCK.

1943 NH VF single "HJÄLP NORDENS BARN" (Help Nordic Children) WWII-era charity seal, officially issued, with the royal monogram, by the government telegraph department promoting the use of telegraph form Lx85. The fee for that telegraph form (which could be specified by the sender of the telegram) included a small amount of money that was directed to this charitable purpose. This officially issued charity seal is thus somewhat similar to semi-postal stamps. This seal is seldom offered, especially in such nice quality.
