I'm doing some research about famous stamps, and I have a question about the Sweden's "Treskilling Yellow".
What city were the regular 3-skillings stamps printed??
I can't find any credible sources on the web.

re: Question about Treskilling Yellow

according to a number of pages on the internet that I combined, engraving and printing of the first Swedish stamps was primarily by Count Pehr Ambjörn Sparre af Söfdeborg. He used to be manager for the Tumba Bruk, the printing company responsible for printing Swedish banknotes. It was/is located in Tumba, just outside Stockholm. Later he started his own company where he printed stamps for Postverket, the Swedish Postal Service. It does not say where this was, but it seems logical to me that he would do so in Stockholm, or its direct vicinity.
