Welcome to the website of the Swedish Postal History Society (SSPD).

The members of SSPD study and collect Swedish postal history. We display our collections at philatelic exhibitions and publish our findings, for example in the Society’s own publication Aktuellt om Posthistoria. SSPD has regular meetings in Stockholm and Malmö, including the annual “Postal History Day” in Stochkolm. We are currently just over 100 members. Membership is by invitation only.

For further information about SSPD, or queries about Swedish postal history, please contact the Society by email:
