Welcome to my place of wonders

On this page you may browse different posts on the history of Scandinavian stamps, fetched from several sources.

Some of these are available online, while most are written down by knowledgable philatelists in their studies of classical stamps. New research are seldom seen these days, but this should not discourage us from digging into the details and stories around the historical use and misuse of stamps. Surely new information will keep on emerging, now that we have more digital tools and easier access to historical records. 

For now I will summarise and repeat what is known already, but mostly unavailable to new philatelists internationally. Philately books covering Scandinavian stamps in the period of 1900 to 1960s are few and usually in local languages.
