    Large Norway collection features 987 stamps on approximately 45 Scott album pages.  Collection ranges from 1877 to 2003 with most stamps in postally used condition.  Highlights include #4 (catalogue value $17), #31 and Souvenir Sheet #946-47.  Also contains an extensive Official stamp collection plus Semi-postal issues.

    King Olav V rules this constitutional monarchy, but like Queen Elizabeth of England, he has little political power.  Most decisions are made by Norway?s elected legislature, called the Storting.

    Norway is a rugged, mountainous land, famous for its beautiful fiords.  A fiord is a narrow inlet of ocean, enclosed by high cliffs.  Mountains cover half of Norway, with a great deal more being blanketed by Europe?s largest ice field.  Yet, surprisingly, the climate is mild because ocean currents carry warm breezes over the land.

    Norway is about the same size as the state of New Mexico, with 10,000 miles of coastline.  Compare that to the United States with an approximate coastline of 12,000 total miles.  Because Norway is surrounded by water, fishing (mostly mackerel and cod) is the main industry.  Norwegians have also been farming the sea for other resources, since oil and natural gas were discovered in the North Sea.

    Today, Norway is one of the richest countries in the world.  Norwegians are well-educated and have a long life expectancy.  But, although there are few poor people, there are few people who are very wealthy.  Most Norwegians have a middle-class standard of living.  Their work week is short, only 32 hours.  And on days off, Norwegians are either skiing in winter, or swimming, sailing, or hiking in warmer weather.  Indoor activities include reading.  In fact, reading is probably the most common leisure-time activity of all in Norway.  Families are important to Norwegians and the divorce rate is low.  Families tend to be small, and men and women consider each other equal in authority.
