Large Gold Medal to FACIT Special Classic 2017
For the first time ever, a Large Gold in the literature class has been awarded to a stamp price catalogue. During the international stamp exhibition FINLANDIA 2017 in Tampere 24-28 May, FACIT Special Classic 2017 was awarded no less than 95 points and thereby a Large Gold Medal. Also FACIT Norden 2017 received very high scores and was with 93 points awarded a Gold Medal.
FACIT Special Classic and FACIT Norden emerged when in 2016 chief editor Gunnar Lithén decided to divide FACIT Special into two parts. FACIT Special Classic contains all Nordic stamps up to 1951 with varieties and specialties. FACIT Norden contains all Nordic stamps from 1951 onwards with varieties, the period before 1951 is described with issue and denomination, without varieties. Both catalogues also contain current editorial material and have been highly appreciated by the collectors.
What do my stamps cost?
The first FACIT catalogue was issued in 1947. It has since become the standard reference and a "must-have" for collectors of Nordic philately. Armed with the right FACIT you not only have a current price catalogue with all issued stamps, but also a handbook in the art of stamp collecting. It is written by a catalogue committee of about 20 active, distinguished philatelists, each closely monitoring the market in their area of expertise.
FACIT Special Classic contains all the Nordic stamps with varieties and specialties until 1951.
FACIT Norden contains all the Nordic stamps until the latest issue. However, only stamps from 1951 onwards are described with varieties, earlier stamps are described only with issue, denomination and price for a normal stamp.
FACIT Postal is issued every five years and is focussed on Swedish town cancellations and postal history, a popular philatelic area of interest.
FACIT Sverige is issued every two years and is a simpler catalogue with Swedish stamps only. The catalogue is filled with beautiful high quality colour images and the content is easy to grasp. This is the perfect catalogue for the beginner or for anybody in need of a quick valuation of their stamps.
