Hi.
"Tjänste Frimärke" is official stamp in english
I suppose "tjänstebrevkort" is "official postcard"

Thank you for the replies.

So the Postforskott is a Postal Money Order Card?
Or
A "Cash on Delivery" card; a way to send money through the mail?

I think the difference is that the Cash on delivery was immediate.With the money order type ;the person had 30 days to recover the money at the post-office with the reciept.
So yours is the Cash on delivery type.
