Can someone please ID these two (2) Swedish issues?

They do not look like standard stamp issues as they have no denominations. They seem cut-outs? Possibly from a wrapper of something else...... The one on the left is gummed!

I believe those are Swedish military stamps, and not Scott listed.

They are definitely military stamps.
The first stamp is shown on this Danish site, which says that they were issued from 1929 - 1963:
http://www.asfe.dk/pop-up1.asp?stampid=10923

"Faltpost" means field post.
From what seems a very useful reference site that lists a huge number of stamp inscriptions:
"SVARSMARKE and SVERIGE = Sweden - military letter reply stamp - A stamp printed on the back of envelopes given regularly to military servicemen. The reply stamp would be cut out of the envelope and pay postage to any armed forces serviceman."
from http://www.fmus.ru/article02/over1/S.html

I think the other "stamp" is in fact from a printed envelope for military post. However, the site is in Swedish which I don't understand:
http://www.smps.se/area/military_covers.php

A similar "stamp" is on this cover:
http://www.asfe.dk/pop-up1.asp?stampid=429

Anyone out there understand Swedish?
