[ I'm going to consider this post as still incomplete, because I only have data from Sweden until 1969, and the Artist died in 1988 , so he  could have designed some more stamps for the Swedish Post... In a few days , I will receive a new catalog from the Scandinavian Countries..Updates could exist in the near future.."
