U.S. Local TB Christmas Charity Seal Societies
The TB Charity Seals were issued by various religious, state, county, city, and volunteer, anti-tuberculosis societies. The funds derived from the sale of these seals supported TB Sanitoriums. Since these TB Charity Seals were issued near, or at Christmas time to solicit donations, and usually contained Christmas images, they are also known as TB Christmas Seals. For over 100 years, philatelists, stamp dealers, stamp collectors, and the general public, have considered U.S. Local TB Charity Seals to be Christmas Seals.
All societies are identified by their Green's Catalog, Part II, US Local TB Christmas Seals, catalog numbers.
