I have started rearranging my stamps since some time now, those that have not been so far, in the chronological order of date and year of release. Recently I finished with the few stamps of Sweden I have.

Most Swedish stamps are not perforated on all sides, if you've noticed. They are either perforated vertically / horizontally or on three sides, reason being that most of them are released in the booklet format.

I am just listing out below some of the complete sets and short sets in my small collection of these stamps.
1963, Sept. 16: 300th anniversary of the Swedish Board of Health. Dr. Du Rietz (1607-1682) was first president of the “Collegium Medicorum,” forerunner of the Board of Health.
