Do you think there is any other stamp in the world with a hand drill on it? Probably not. And this one is from Sweden, a land that really values its industrial history. We had one of these in our workshop when I grew up, and I remember drilling out bird house holes with it. I think it came from my grandfather (morfar), who had been a wood shop teacher at the local high school. Look at the cross section through the wood in the background too! I think Swedish stamps are exceptionally well designed.
