Dear Mr. Ashcroft.
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The National Archives is the repository for the permanently valuable non-current records of the Federal Government. We have no authority to appraise or authenticate historical documents found in other collections. Please contact the Rosersberg Palace for information regarding the provenance of their collections.
Please note that the information located by Ms. Lane only claims that it is an early copy, not an original copy. See Which Version is This, and Why Does it Matter from Harvard University for information about some of the early printings of the Declaration.
According to the National Archives’ July 4th page on the Declaration of Independence, Congress sent copies of the Declaration to all the states, as well as King George III. Declaration of Independence Dates to Remember and At Its Core, the Declaration of Independence Was a Plea for Help From Britain’s Enemies also reference sending copies to France. We could not locate a specific reference to Congress sending copies of the Declaration directly to Sweden, however it was widely spread throughout Europe by letters, newspapers, etc.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
