International Postage Meter Stamp Catalog/Macedonia

MacedoniaEdit

  • The first meter stamps appeared in 1992. Macedonia became an independent state in 1991 when Yugoslavia was disintegrating into its constituent parts. For issues before 1992 see YUGOSLAVIA. All stamps are inscribed “MACEDONIA”, “MAKEDONIJA”, “MAKEДOHИJA”, “MAKEΔOHИJA” or are without country name but have a Macedonian town mark.
  • The stamps are grouped according to usage:
A - For general commercial and private use
PO - Generated only by machines in Post Offices

NOTE: Catalog values are not provided because almost no supply and demand data could be found by the authors.
