A new kind of motif for a definitive stamp
The Fjeld did not directly replace a stamp from the Gustaf VI Adolf type III series which were the cases for the New Numeral Type and the Posthorn. The 35 öre Fjeld co-existed with the 35 öre violet Gustaf VI Adolf. It was actually an alternative to the stamp with the King's portrait. That was also a novelty.
It was a low denomination and its single use was domestic post cards, as well as to the other Nordic countries until March 1969 or as printed matter after March 1969 until July 1971. It was issued in nearly 215 million in total which must be regarded as a huge number for a single definitive stamp at the end of the sixties. The artist was Sixten Lundbohm and it was engraved by Czeslaw Slania.
