Very nice pages Rod, Billsey and Nora

Can't wait until I have my stamp room back so I can share some of mine.

A while back, a couple of years ago or so, I wanted some older stamps of Sweden. I'd like to get even more, and I will, someday...





Oscar II...

Oscar was also king of Norway, from 1872 to 1905.

Oscar loved pomp and circumstance, and was considered to be a bit eccentric.

Your 1885 10o Dull Rose

P.K.X.P (Postkupeexpeditioner) indicate Travelling Post Office.
(Forwarding Mail Van)
Type: Dotted circle and serif lettering

Exist full circle and sans-serif lettering.

It should be stressed that any given PKXP number did not necessarily indicate the same route throughout its life. To take as an example PKXP No.1 shown in figure 6; it represented the Stockholm-Katrineholm route only from 1909 to 1917. It is therefore necessary to have a complete list with dates of operation. Such lists have been published by Hjertberg(2) and Jahr(3). The two publications do not necessarily agree in every particular. Sjögren(4) gives the same information but it is arranged alphabetically in order of places served.

Solved
The stamp was issued prior to the Kingdom of Norway separating from Sweden
hence it has the jack in the corner.

Ergo Correct flag.
