J7 [1874 24 öre RED VIOLET Perf 14 Postage Due, Facit #L7a] Used, VF centered with neat, light, proper 1878 or 1879 cancellation. This also has the Facit-listed (#L7av) "Short L of LÖSEN" variety. Extremely nice centering for this normally poorly centered issue. Brilliant, rich color. The Facit 2020 value is SEK 3000 for normal (poor) centering. Facit states that a 100% premium should be added for VF (AB) centering, which this is. A key stamp missing (at least in undamaged quality) from most collections. The nicest looking example I have had in years!

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.

6 [1858 5 öre Coat of Arms] Mint with XF centering and huge margins. Full original gum, lightly hinged. Wonderful, intense Yellow-Green color. The slightly irregular appearance of the perforation teeth identify this as having 1855 perforations (the perforator was wearing out by this time; the perforator was replaced in 1865). Thus between the perforations and the color, this is confirmed as Facit #7c1 with printings in 1862-1863. which happens to be the scarcest color/printing of the 5 öre stamp, with a 2020 Facit value of SEK 7000! This color/printing is scarce with original gum and fresh appearance; and extremely scarce with such nice centering. Accompanied by a Jay Smith certificate with lifetime guarantee (see details). If you wish a Helena Obermuller-Wilen certificate to be obtained, I can arrange that with estimated additional cost of around $60-80 and estimated 2-5 months to obtain the certificate. An outstanding showpiece!

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.

LX2, Facit #13a [1862 non-denominated (3 öre) olive brown "Local"] Used Fine+ with neat, light Stockholm local delivery (which was the primary purpose of this stamp) cancellation. This example has slightly less white paper than some, but that is typical variation of the handmade paper still in use at that time. The perforations are just slightly irregular as they should be; the so-called "1855" perforator tool was becoming worn out and was not replaced until 1865. Most examples of this stamp are either defective and/or repaired, but this example is completely sound. Especially nice with such a light cancellation. Facit 2020 value SEK 4000!

LX2, Facit #13a [1862 non-denominated (3 öre) olive brown "Local"] Mint F-VF, but without gum and with a very small thin spot at top center. This example is unusually fresh looking with white, high quality paper -- unusual for the handmade paper still in use at that time. The perforations are unusually nice and NOT as irregular as usual, but they are still made by the correct so-called "1855" perforator tool that was becoming worn out and was not replaced until 1865. (The perforation 14 reprints were made in 1871 with the new, better "1865" perforator tool; also the reprints are yellow-brown.) Most examples of this stamp are defective and certainly not this attractive. Especially fresh appearance! Facit 2020 value SEK 5500 for with gum, however gummed examples are quite scarce.

Minor aging on some perforations, hidden small tear, thins. The perforations are typically irregular as usual, made by the correct so-called "1855" perforator tool that was becoming worn out and was not replaced until 1865. (The perforation 14 reprints were made in 1869-1871 with the new, better "1865" perforator tool.) Most examples of this stamp are defective. A reasonable looking example!

J19 GRAY VIOLET (Facit L17a) [1877 24 öre Postage Due, Perf 13; 1882 Printing] Mint with F-VF centering, without gum. Remarkably well centered for this particular stamp (the perforations usually cut the design). In some respects this is one of the scarcest Swedish stamps -- it is often easier to obtain a #1 than an example of #J19! With gum, this example would easily fetch $250 and there would be a line of people wanting to buy it! Very fresh and attractive.

A couple perfs tips slightly shorter, but hardly worth mentioning. Neat, full STOCKHOLM cancellation. A terrific example of a scarce stamp; this color is much scarcer than the catalog values suggest, especially in such nice quality! Facit 2020 SEK 700 for normal quality. A wonderful example.

The last recorded use of this postmark spelling, with a "W" ceased is 25 March -- the first recorded use of the new spelling, with a "V" is 6 June of this year. This small village postmark is fairly scarce (Facit rating 100 in this era.) A terrific example!

Sweden Collection Balance / Remainder -- High Catalog Value with lots of Colors and Cancels: An interesting balance / remainder of a Swedish collection on Scott Specialty pages. When this came to me there had already been stamps removed by the previous owner and then I removed a few more that caught my interest (but I certainly did NOT remove everything of value). There is still a lot left to recommend this collection, at the correct price. The stamps run from 1855 to the mid-1930s, including extensive Postage Dues and Officials: Scott #2//192, J1//J22, and O1//25. (There are NO semi-postals, airmails, or stamps after Scott #192.) In the early stamps, there are a LOT of high catalog value stamps with DEFECTS (often hidden) -- it is obvious that the original collector was more interested in the variations, colors, postmarks, etc., than seeking out perfect stamps. The identification (perforation, watermark, etc.) of the stamps is 98% correct, which is unusual (I have NOT counted any that were not correctly identified). There are some complete and readable TOWN CANCELLATIONS and many others not well centered, but from identifiable small towns and villages. There are many COLOR VARIATIONS. In total there are about 495 stamps.The total Scott 2020 catalog value is approximately $2563, but of course Scott value is for VF stamps in undamaged quality. This is a great Sweden starter collection for the person who wants a lot of catalog value for a low price; for the person who wants to fill in a lot of early spaces and is not overly concerned about quality; or for the person who seeks color varieties and postmarks more so than quality. I am probably making this sound worse than it is, but I just do not want to mislead anybody. The price is certainly right! Shipping cost is additional for this item.

LX2, Facit #13a [1862 non-denominated (3 öre) olive brown "Local"] Mint, original gum, with VF centering and excellent perforations; without any faults or repairs! A remarkably nice example of the original stamp (NOT a reprint): original gum is quite scarce; such nice centering is very unusual; and such nice color and perforations are unusual; and examples without faults or repairs are very unusual, especially in mint condition. Very pretty example of a scarce 157 year old mint stamp!

23b DOUBLE PRINT [1876 20 on 20 öre Ringtype Perf 14] Used F-VF with neat, upright GRENNA 4 August 1877 cancellation (plus small part of another strike). One printing of the 20 öre was so light in Pale Orange olor as to be almost useless (though some were released and used) and thus they were run through the press again to print in a darker color. Facit lists three possible color groups on top of the Pale Orange; This is Facit #23c, the Dull Red, however, this red of this example is much softer or more pale than typically found (the colors were hand-mixed as needed and were not consistent). The red (top) color is shifted a little farther than usual from the underlying color, making this example a little more obvious than usual (clearly visible, but as always more visible with a 10x magnifier). Such obvious examples are scarce -- and especially when in such nice quality and with a nice postmark.

Q1 "1.93" VARIETY, Facit #97v1 [1917 1.98 Parcel Post surcharge] Used VF/Superb 3-Strip with variety stamp on right stamp. The "8" of the overprint is significantly deformed and nearly looks like a "3". Facit calls it the 1.93 variety and places it as position 33 in the sheet. I have had so few examples (maybe 5?) in the last 46 years that I suspect that the damage to the overprint plate occurred sometime during the printing process and only exists from part of the printing. To the best of my knowledge, this variety was first reported by David Anderson (deceased) of Minnesota back in the 1970s or 1980s and through his almost-maddening perseverance the variety was confirmed as constant and became catalog listed. This variety example would be the nicest used single that I have had or seen and the only one I have had or seen in a used multiple. The stamp is much harder to find (mint or used) than the modest catalog value suggests; and in a used multiple it is extremely scarce.

Q1 Possible "1.93" VARIETY PRECURSOR, Facit #97v1?? [1917 1.98 Parcel Post surcharge] Used Average-Fine example showing damage to the "8" in the overprint, with part of the metal cliche breaking away; when fully broken away, I think this would look like the "1.93" variety. If my observation is correct, this would support my theory that the overprint plate damage occurred during the printing and thus only some of the sheets show the variety. This is the only such potential precursor example, mint or used, that I have ever seen or know about.

397 FLUORESCENT, Facit #300v1 [1968 Fluorescent Printing of the 1948 1.40 kr dark green 3-Crowns] Used Superb with fully dated 14 February 1969 light cancellation. An unannounced (accidental?) 1968 printing on bright yellow fluorescent (under long-wave UV light) paper. This variety (and also some faintly fluorescent varieties of other stamps) was accidentally discovered around 1978 by a staff member of the Rolf Gummesson stamp dealer firm who was checking some other stamps under UV light and noticed these. In 1968-1969 this denomination was needed for foreign postal money orders (thus the stamps were spread widely on items sent outside of Sweden -- and the destination post offices tended to keep such forms as the receipt for making the payment -- which helps to explain the rarity of used examples). The supply of mint stamps was long exhausted before this variety was discovered; only by chance might a collector have obtained a mint example (of a 20 year old stamp design) from the post office in 1968. Rare in mint and quite hard to find used, especially undamaged and with nice centering. This is a top quality example in the 99th percentile.

The cancel is a bit heavy, but there is no doubt about its use! Clear (without fluid) inverted wavy-line watermark AND KPV watermark. Facit 2018 value SEK 2400 ($310 8/2018 with a typical cancellation). Examples of even the basic stamp with smaller-town cancellation are very unusual; they are extremely scarce on the watermark varieties. This watermark-double-variety is extremely scarce -- one might even say rare. In 45 years I believe I have had one mint example, but this is the only used example! The specialist will appreciate just how scarce this item is both with the watermark variety and the smaller-town cancellation! By the way, Haparanda is located at the northerly extreme of the Swedish coastline, and is the eastern-most community. As the key to the primary land route to Finland, it has great historical importance.

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".

It seems that the vast majority of this stamp that is offered in the market actually have some sort of quality problem. Such attractive and fault-free examples as this one are really scarce -- much scarcer than the catalogs suggest. Facit 2017 value is SEK 2,200 or about $260, for normal quality and SEK 6,000 or about $720 for "top quality". This is an outstanding example, better than any I have had in quite a few years!

The gum has the outward appearance of being original, but under high magnification it can be seen to affect the perforation tips, thus it has either been expertly regummed or has slightly disturbed gum. A very attractive example of a mint stamp not often seen. Facit 2017 value is SEK 7,500 or about $850 for normal mint hinged quality.

537 Fluorescent Paper Variety, Facit 332Av1 [(1958) 5 kronor Palace coil] NH VF SINGLE, with small light bends, of this rare variety. This is one of the rarest, if not the rarest, of a small group of Swedish definitive stamps that had new printings on paper that contained "gold flecks" of fluorescent matter, printed sometime in the late 1960s or early 1970s. These paper varieties were not known to exist until staff members of major Swedish stamp dealer Rolf Gummesson discovered them in the 1980s. By that time, the stamps were no longer in use and these mid-period-of-use printings had long ago been consumed in normal postal use and had subsequently been reprinted again on normal paper. The only mint examples available to philatelists today are those that were by chance purchased by collectors who happened to get them when ordering stamps from the Swedish post office stock list while those printings were current (which I know from my own experience to mean sometime before 1973). The fluorescence consists not of a coating, but of many tiny golden specks embedded in the paper; view under long-wave UV light in a completely dark room. The appearance is both of tiny gold highlights and a general faint yellowish glow. While viewing, compare to other stamps of the time period. (Viewing of used off-paper stamps may not be reliable due to their soaking in water.) This printing of this design is also distinguished by a delicate light greenish blue color and glass-smooth extremely-shiny gum. I am only able to offer examples of this stamp every few years. No stamp dealer seems to have a stock of them; Gummesson located a few examples of this stamp in mint condition, but sold out very quickly. Facit listed this stamp, and most of the few others in this category, for a number of years, but for unexplained reasons dropped the listings some years ago. (However, Facit also does not list many important "whitened paper" varieties of later stamp issues for no good reason.) A rare stamp listed by some of the European catalogs and always strongly sought after. The bends on this example are probably from collector handling and can only be seen from the back of the stamp; most collectors would not have even noticed them; they may flatten out with time. Normally $290 for NH VF.

225 [1924 1 kr UPU Anniversary] Used VF right-marginal 4-BLOCK with neat light central cancellation, large margins, and excellent perforations. The left two stamps have noticeable gum-soak staining (the gum soaked into the paper, making it slightly translucent); this is only barely noticeable on the right two stamps (and if removed from the block, the right two stamps would look normal). A very attractive accent piece; used blocks of the high values are seldom seen. Priced mostly for the right two stamps.

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! Shipping cost is additional for this item.

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!

J19 GRAY VIOLET [1877 24 öre Postage Due, Perf 13; 1882 Printing] NEVER HINGED with Average centering. Very fresh with very unusual deep color. This stamp is almost always poorly centered; this centering is fairly typical. Facit 2014 NH value for typical centering (which this is for this stamp) is SEK 4500 = $720. This scarce major-number color-difference stamp is missing from the vast majority of collections in any quality or centering; NH examples are extremely scarce!

Lx1, Facit #6a1 [1856 1 skilling Black Local] Used Fine with Superb starburst postmark. Typical centering for the issue, but with nicer than usual perforations (which are normally irregular prior to 1858). Beautifully postmarked example with very nice impression. A hansome example without any defects (due to the very thin paper, most examples are defective). Facit 2014 SEK 7500 = $1200 for typical example.

175 [1925 25 öre Gustaf V Profile] NEVER HINGED F-VF with black coil counting number on reverse. Such counting numbers are rarely offered and they are not listed in any catalog; their scarcity suggests that they were only imprinted every 100 stamps or even less often (I do not recall seeing in the literature any confirmation of the frequency in this time period). Facit 2013 value for the plain NH stamp is SEK 450 = US$70!

48 Colors [1886 50 öre Ringtype, with posthorn on back] Group of 7 used stamps, all VF or better centered, with all-different colors/shades and/or papers. The star of this group is a VERY UNUSUAL "SOOTY CARMINE" that I cannot recall previously seeing -- the color does not match any catalog listing I know of and is not represented in the color page from the 1970s/1980s SFT. It is probably a variation of Facit #48e Dark Violetish Carmine, but it is quite unusual.

13 Type II, Facit #14B [1863 3 öre Lion] Used F-VF with neat cancellation. Unusual plate variety: "several breaks / white spots in top frame line, near left corner and above RIG". I have not previously seen this obvious variety or any report of it. I suspect that the cliche was quickly repaired, thus making this variety quite scarce.
