International Postage Meter Stamp Catalog/Liechtenstein

LiechtensteinEdit

  • The first meter was installed in 1925.
  • The postal service of LIECHTENSTEIN is administered by SWITZERLAND. The meter stamps are similar to those of SWITZERLAND but are inscribed LIECHTENSTEIN instead of HELVETICA. The early stamps are also numbered in the same series as SWITZERLAND.
  • The stamps are grouped by the shape of the frank as follows:
A – Oval
B – Horizontal frank without outer frame
C – Horizontal frank with complete outer frame
D – Horizontal frank with frame line at bottom only
E – Digital frank with 2D barcode
