Sweden : 07 Early issues 1917

In 1917 and 1918, the series of Gustaf V stamps were overprinted.

Two additional values were overprinted with rather unusual face values:
1,98 on 5 and 2,12 on 5.
Those two values were used for parcel post, that explains the odd values.
Two stamps I still miss in my collection.



Manuel, you have extensively read on the Swedish Stamps.I have such stamps too.I must look at them deeply.

That's the purpose of this blog :D
I got help by various catalogues.
I will only work on a collection if I have the proper local catalogues. Only those give sufficient information. World catalogues (like Gibbons, Scott, Michel, Yvert) only give basic information. But once you go into details, the fun starts :D
