The Makuleras Cancels of Sweden - May 1999
By James Burgeson  (Page 2 of 2)



PAGE ONE .... PAGE TWO



Fig 5 By the 1930s many varieties of straight line, unframed cancels with letters in many styles can be found as well as some with circular frames as shown in Figure 5.

The cover shown in Figure 6, from 1943, is philatelic and perhaps is an example of canceled to order.

The Makuleras cancel on the cover in Figure 7 certainly appears used to cancel stamps that had escaped previous canceling and also the cover in Figure 8.

Unlike the "cork" cancels of Finland, there appears to be little interest in the wide variety of Makuleras cancels of Sweden.
