SWEDEN – 1855, Treskilling Green – Price realized: $8,500

In 1855, the country issued its first postage stamps depicting the Swedish coat of arms of five denominations. The 3-skilling one shown above was printed in blue-green. Stamps of this series are not rare, but since the lot shown above has a mistake (“toe” instead of “tre”), it significantly affected its value.
