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.

In 1962, Erik Petersen designed this sheet of Christmas seals, depicting the gamle hÃ¥ndvÃ¦rk (â€old tradesâ€) of Denmark.”
