Vertical or Horizontal??..

New Entries

It is not the first time I post new entries of Swedish stamps... You can see that in most of the stamps presented a strange kind of perforation is used.. I begin my usual investigation and found an article I think will bring you some "light" over this aspect of Sweden's Philately..

Yesterday I wrote about a lot that I bought , a lot of European stamps from the 20's and 30's.. well, these are also stamps of that lot.. It is very helpful to buy these lots , because we could have an idea of the main series of each country, and at the same time similarities between different ways of seeing Philately..In this lot there were stamps from Sweden, Norway, Denmark,Belgium,Austria and Spain ; even , if you get just one or two stamps of a series , when You classify them You will know about that particular set and know if it is a "must have " situation or not, what periods of time interest  You more in each country, etc.
These are stamps from a set 12 1936 "Tercentenary of Swedish Post."
Perf: 10 Vert

there are many series of King Gustav V and that is not strange knowing that he reigned for about 43 Years (1907/1950)
These are stamps from a set 3 1947 "40th Anniversary of the Reign of King Gustav V"

A beautiful stamp from a thematic that I'm not a Fan... there are spectacular series from Sports , but I think in the 80's and 90's bad things were done to this theme , with stamps and sets that I really don't like..talking about thematic s, Yesterday I was presented to a blog that I think it is very interesting...
