I have quite a number of these in various form. Still need to sort through a batch of 100-200 Scandinavian ones, and have a selection of those from USA. I may have some scanned already, but will take a while to sort them out if I haven't. But if you're patient I will do it.

Looking for something different I just stumbled on these Denmark Xmas seals from 1962

An illustrated map (there must be term for this sort of map) of the old trades of Denmark. Each stamp can stand on its own, but each is a crucial part of the whole.

You can read the http://grainedit.com/2009/12/22/denmark-christmas-seals-1962/ - full story behind the stamps

Nice stamps - but maybe I am also biased. I have quite a lot of newer Danish Christmas stamps, from the 80 s and 90 s, but they are stored at my mothers house. I should try to find them some time.
I also have some from Greenland. When I was a kid, You used to get a sheet if you wrote a letter to julemanden (santa claus), who as everyone (at least anyone in Denmark) knows lives in Greenland.

A few more for the archives 1933. 1934, 1942, 1948, 1962

Anyone know if Crippled Children was multi year? No date showing (.....looking at the Daffodils I think they may be Easter seals - not Christmas).

I have some other Crippled Children seals, but laying my hands on them is not an option. They are 'somewhere'. Whether mine are from the same source, or whether this title is generic is unknown. I have no doubt that several years ago the wording was changed/updated.

I discovered the panel of Crippled Children (with daffodils) is from 1948


Watch these Youtubes from a lady who has scores of CC full sheets from 1947 onward (May be a helpful resource for finding the year.)

Some National Society for Crippled Children Info

Tragedy Leads to Inspiration

In 1907, Ohio businessman Edgar Allen lost his son in a streetcar accident. The lack of adequate medical services available to save his son prompted Allen to sell his business and begin a fund-raising campaign to build a hospital in his hometown of Elyria, Ohio.

Through this new hospital, Allen was surprised to learn that children with disabilities were often hidden from public view. Concerned by this discovery, Allen put all his efforts into collecting private donations for a hospital to provide services for disabled children. In 1915, the Gates Hospital for Crippled Children was established solely for disabled children and the services were offered free of charge.

When the community hesitated to accept the free services, Allen enlisted the Rotary Clubs of Ohio as volunteers to help gain the trust of the communities and assist with the care of the children. By 1919, Allen and Ohio Rotarians established what became known as the National Society for Crippled Children, the first organization of its kind. The organization had chapters throughout the Midwest and north-east, including Pennsylvania, just two years later. The umbrella organization and its chapters later became known as the Easter Seal Society.

The link in the previous post is broken, so hopefully this works....

History

From our beginning in 1923 as part of the National Society for Crippled Children to our independent status as Lifesteps today, we have been helping individuals and families with life’s changing needs lead better lives. Today, the Agency helps thousands of individuals annually; and provides outreach to tens of thousands of area families. The Lifesteps staff creates a culture that works to foster independence and to provide exceptional care and support to all we serve.

The organization had chapters throughout the Midwest and northeast, including Pennsylvania, just two years later. The umbrella organization and its chapters later became known as the Easter Seal Society.

Local Community Support Leads To Independence

From eight programs and services offered in 1954, the local agency grew to offer 35 programs and services by 2002. Community support also continued to grow. The community supported the Agency through sponsorships, special events and volunteering. Strong community support and commitment lead the agency to break away from the Easter Seal Society in 1994 and become an independent nonprofit agency known as Lifesteps, Inc.

Lifesteps’ mission is supported by hundreds of businesses and individuals. Whether Lifesteps has required more facility space or funds to add services for the community, Lifesteps has been able to call on the community for the support it has needed to accomplish its goals. Lifesteps, in turn, has continued to answer the call when the community has needed new services to help individuals and families with life’s changing needs.

Does anyone have any information on these Swiss GB seals from 1949 and 1951. I haven't seen any like it before.

Very nice, i Haven't seen these before either. Appears to be the Aargau Women's League to Combat Tuberculosis founded in 1909 in Baden in the Canton of Aargau, Switzerland. The organisation then spread to to other towns. It looks like these are 40th anniversary stamps for those towns joining the League.
