Serbia stamps

(Serbia and Montenegro)

P=have O=don’t have it

Flag of Serbia and Montenegro

Serbia began to issue its own stamps in 1866. This continued until 1920, when its postal system was merged with the postal system of the former Austro-Hungarian territories with which it formed the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes.

After the establishment of an independent Serbia in 1941, issuing of stamps resumed until 1944. Initially, Yugoslavian stamps were simply overprinted in German with the word Serbien.

From 1944 onwards, Serbia was part of Yugoslavia.

Yugoslavia became Serbia & Montenegro Feb.4, 2003 with each section of the country maintaining and operating their own currency.  

Upon the dissolution of the union of Serbia and Montenegro in 2006, Serbia began issuing its own stamps once more.

Centenary of the “King Peter in the Battlefield in 1914” Stamp Issue.

The stamp “King Peter in the Battlefield in 1914” was issued in 1915, in the memory of the victory of the Serbian army in the battles fought against the Austro-Hungarian army in the autumn of 1914. On 17 November 1914, when the Serbian soldiers were visited by King Peter I, the then government decided to issue a stamp in honour of this event.

The stamp template was made according to a photo of a war photographer Sampson Tchernoff which was made in the battlefield in Garevica near the village of Darosava (Kolubara County). There are King Peter I, Duke Stepa Stepanović, Prince George and the King’s aide, Colonel Knežević in the photo. The Tchernoff’s photo attracted a great publicity – it was first published in a French magazine “Illustration” (L’Illustration), and afterwards on a war postcard of the French issue.

The stamp “King Peter in the Battlefield in 1914” is the first Serbian stamp where the portrait of a sovereign isn’t presented as a classical portrait from the waist up. This stamp is unique in the world partly because King Peter was the only king at the time to have a photo from the front line.

There is an inscription “Srbija” (“Serbia”) on the upper right side of the stamp, and “Kralj Petar na bojištu 1914. godine” (“King Peter in the Battlefield in 1914”) on the lower side. Engraving and making of cliches for the stamps printing were done in Paris, and the stamps, in seven values (5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 50 pa), were printed at the Serbian Government Printing Works in Niš only in early October 1915, due to difficult communication in the war circumstances.

The stamps were then transported from the Printing Works to the central Stamps Depot for distribution which was in Kruševac at the time. Due to the weak postal traffic, the stamps were only sent to post offices in Gornji Milanovac, Ribarska Spa, Podujevo and Kriva Palanka, and when the offensive of the Austro-Hungarian and German armies ensued, post offices and the Stamps Depot in Kruševac had to be evacuated. In Priština in early November, the Post issued these stamps to citizens to use them instead of coins, and that was also done in Prizren, where the Depot was transferred. In Peć, before the retreat of the Serbian army across Albania in late November 1915, these stamps were destroyed – burned.

Artistic realization of the stamp: Jakša Vlahović, academic graphic artist.

150th Anniversary of First Postal Card Used in Serbia

sos austria-hungary 29  1867- Inside #???: Austria #29O

Lou wrote: The stamp reproduces one of the first illustrated postcards of Austria-Hungary and what is considered the first Serbian postcard.  It was created for the editorial mailings of the "Zmaj" (Dragon), a Cyrillic language satirical newspaper for Serbians. Originally produced in various Serbian area cities from 1867, in 1871 it was printed in, and ceased publication in Vienna after seven issues. The postcard illustrated was mailed on May 19, 1871 from Vienna to Sombor in Serbia, a distance of 212 miles, and was received the next day! (USPS take note). The Serbia Post issued this commemorative stamp exactly 150 years later, and the address and message sides of the card are in the cachet of the first day cover. This is the only Dragon postcard believed to be in existence today.

Lou wrote: Serbia, on May 13, 2022 issued one value for Stamp Day, reproducing a very rare tete-beche pair of a Prince Milan stamp of 1872.  Scott's lists the tete-beche pair as Serbia #25a without a price. I made a long search of Stamp auctions and could not find an example offered.  Until one shows up, I have included a scan of #25.

The fdc for Stamp Day 2022 notes the 150th anniversary of the 1872 Prince Milan issues, but the cachel with a cover with 20 # 25 does not show a tete-beche pair!
