Swedish Satire Paper 100 Years

On the 29th of August 2002 the Sweden Postal Administration will issue 2 new stamps honoring the Gronkopings Veckoblad satire paper. The stamps will be issued in two different combination (shown above) and have a postal value of 5 Krona. For a hundred years the paper has reflected political decisions and the Swedish cultural scene through the eyes of the typical small town of Gronkoping, a fictitious place, and its comic personalities. Two stamps will be issued for the centenary. One features the humoristic postmaster, the other the police chief with the town Bad Boy.

These coil stamps can be purchase in either of the two types shown above, in mint or canceled condition. The FDC and the Collection sheet shown below are also available. The stamp size is 31.25 mm x 31.25 mm. The printing process used is 2 color recess and 1 color offset.
