Sweden : Stamps up to 1900


This section includes Sweden's first issue from 1855, five stamps picturing the Swedish coat of arms and denominated in skilling banco. Ring stamps follow (1872), then Stockholm local stamps (1874).  Sweden classic stamps are fascinating and not overly complex.  Of note is the famous and unique 3 skilling colour error, among the most valuable stamps in the world.  Valued in Scott at $3,000,000.
