Danish Stamps 1962

Very interesting details from the brilliant Grain Edit about these sweet Danish stamps: “In the early 1900s, a Danish postal clerk came up with the idea of selling Christmas seals to raise money for children with tuberculosis. Over 100 years later, these “cinderella” (unofficial postage) stamps have become a worldwide holiday tradition. In 1962, Erik Petersen designed this sheet of Christmas seals, depicting the gamle hÃ¥ndværk (”old trades”) of Denmark.”
