Amazing and unique map card...though im still trying to figure out the real meaning behind the scenes
Does Sweden have some aspirations towards the US? Want to conquer it? Or is it just because many people from Sweden had emigrated to the US back in 1800's and the early 1900's....the promised land...either way, i love the card, and im not really familiar with the US-Sweden current affairs, so i cant get some other idea what this card could represent...and you know what they say....Silence is Golden...so sometimes its better not to speak, then just to speak in order to say something...:)
There are two nice stamps on the card...actually, as with the Swedish cards, the Swedish stamps are a real rarity in my collection....the one on the left is from 2008, coming from a set of two, commemorating one of the greatest Swedish figures, Ingmar Bergman. On the other stamp you can see the Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf, issued in 2005.
