Sweden August 2001 Issue
Wilhelm von Wright's fishes

Sweden post will issue three new fish stamps the 16 August 2001. The stamps show three species of fish from Scandinavia. They are perch (Perca fluviatilis), bream (Abramis brama), and fourhorn sculpin (Triglopsis quadricornis). These stamps can be purchase in a booklet of 6 , First Day Cover, or a Collector sheet shown left.

The issue you see on this page is a world-wide first: The first time self-adhesive stamps are engraved and printed by combination print. The result is that the depth and clarity of the engraved stamp is combined with the rich colors of offset print. The individual stamps and the First Day Cover (FDC) are shown below.
