Stickney Rotary Press Coil Stamp Production In Pictures. The U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) supplied Sweden with the same equipment which was used to print U.S. coil stamps.

Small Stickney rotary printing press for printing coil stamps in long webs

Stickney bar perforator for perforating coil stamps in one direction only either vertically or horizontally

Stickney coiler for cutting up coil stamps into separate rolls/spools of long coil stamp strips

Stickney coil strips with different perforation gauge and hole size

Upper row coil stamps are perforation 10 gauge with larger perforation holes. Note one row of smaller perforation holes along the ink line.
Lower row coil stamps are perforation 13 gauge with smaller perforation holes.

Thanks jogil for posting those pics.

What years would they be from?

Going by the hairstyle and dress of the woman in the middle
pic would IMO place it nineteen twenties.

Lower pic I would guess mid sixties.

Which stamps were they working on I wonder?

lithograving: You are right regarding the years but I don't know which stamps are shown.

Enjoyed this post very much, great pictures, Thank you.

I was going to post other images of the printer, however, after reading, I realised Sweden must have changed in 1937, to the Goebel Press, Goebel Damstadt.

Sweden had printed and perforated Stickney rotary press coils from the 1920 to 1936 issues. (The next Sweden issues were from 1938 and they used Goebel printing and perforating equipment.) They got their Stickney equipment from the BEP. They appear to be small perforation holes. Maybe this Stickney perforator was tried/tested on some U.S. stamps before 1920 and it could have been returned to the BEP after 1936. So far U.S. 496a from 1919 and U.S. 842 from 1939 were found with small perforations. Sweden Stickney coil stamps perforated 10 (9.84) vertical with small perforation holes.
