For some time I have been trying to expand my Denmark collection with one of the annual Christmas seals that have been issued in Denmark since 1904.
Yesterday I have started making an inventory of my collection so far, and counted 560 different ones. That may sound impressive, but since I got the AFA catalogue dedicated to Nordic Christmas Seals I know better. If my counting is correct, there are more than 2,500 different seals, miniature sheets, booklets and local seals not included. That means I am only at 20% and it explains why every time I receive Jul stamps in trades, I can use more than half of them.

The problem, if you can call it that, is that since 1951 the seals are issued in sheets of 50, and more often than not that means 50 different. For most years, having more than 10 out of those 50 is an accomplishment Big Grin

So I keep looking and adding. Right now I have not decided if I want to include the Christmas seals from Norway, Sweden, Faroes, Iceland and Greenland. Although I have 3 from Norway and 2 from Iceland, I think I will concentrate on Denmark for now. On the other hand, they are not as prolific as Denmark so it could be easier to complete.

If you have Danish Christmas seals and do not know what to do with them, let me know. They are more than welcome!

re: Danish Christmas seals / Julemaerker

I am selling all of my collections apart from a very few and am sorting my Danish Cinderellas as I read your post. I have older ones and some locals too as well as sheets and part sheets of more modern. If there is any interest, let me know.
