32 cent New Sweden stamp

The United States, Sweden, and Finland's postal systems worked together to jointly issue New Sweden stamps in 1988.

A joint issue is when postal administrations of two or more countries work together to issue stamps or postal stationery on the same date to commemorate the same event or honor the same person, place or idea. Usually the vignette is the same, framed with different lettering and denominations.
