TB Charity Seal Societies of the World

TB Charity Seals were issued by various anti-tuberculosis societies in countries around the world. The funds derived from the sale of these seals supported TB Sanitoriums. Since many of these TB Charity Seals were issued near, or at Christmas to solicit donations, and usually contained Christmas images, they have become known as Christmas Seals. For over 107 years, philatelists, stamp dealers, stamp collectors, and the general public, have considered many TB Charity Seals to be Christmas Seals. 

We will continue to classify them as TB Charity Seals.

The issuing societies of all countries, except the United States, are identified by their Green's Catalog, Tuberculosis Seals of the World, Part III, Foreign Seals, catalog numbers. U.S. Christmas Seals are identified by Green's Catalog, Tuberculosis Seals of the World, Part 1, U.S. National Christmas Seals, catalog numbers.
