Stamp Investment Tip: Greenland 1996-98 Whales Issues

Between 1996 and 1998, Greenland issued three different souvenir sheets featuring various species of whales (Scott #308a, 322a, 334a). Scott '11 prices these unused at $9.50, $9.75 , and $9.00, and the quantities issued for these souvenir sheets were 86,620, 76,885, and 85,707, respectively.

Stamps of Greenland are popular among collectors of Scandinavian stamps, and these souvenir sheets also have worldwide appeal as Animal topicals.

Much of the demand for these stamps originates in Scandinavia, a region containing about 26 million generally affluent and well-educated people and a thriving stamp market. Also there are many people of Scandinavian ancestry living overseas, including about 12 million Scandinavian Americans.
