First, and foremost, they are TB Charity Seals, issued to raise funds for the fight against tuberculosis. We call them TB Charity Seals, and in the instance of the U.S. and Canada, simply Christmas Seals. We classify them as Charity Seals.
Christmas Seals are located in specific categories within our store. The categories somewhat follow the catalogs of Dick Green which were originally compiled in 1930 and are still followed by the stamp collecting community today.
