Croatia Local and Unofficial Issues

I have new item in my philatelic library: Croatia Local and Unofficial Issues from Mr. Mladen Vilfan, well known and respected philatelist. The book is used as the official handbook of the Croatian Philatelic Federation.

The must have book!

Here, I would like to thank the author for dedication and personal message he wrote for me.

WWII Local partisan issue

For background of historical situation and partisan issues, please see this.

Today I got some stamps that I never see before...

1941? local partisan issue. WWII German ocupation of Serbia, Peter 0.50, 1 and 2 din,
second provisional issue with outlined five-pointed star overprint.
(Need to find out more about this!)

 Update:  Looks like this is a speculative item made after the WWII. No value other than symbolic.
