1941 PARTISAN, Lovćensko odred

Lovćen is a mountain in Montenegro overlooking Cetinje and Kotor Bay (see here). In 1941 Lovćen was occupied by Partisans who overprinted 0,25 0,50 and 1 din King Petar stamps with the “ЛОВЋЕНСКО / ОДРЕД” (LOVĆENSKO / SQUAD) in black and red color.

Be aware that this issue is somehow controversial - it is listed only in the Catalogo Enciclopedico Italiano.

1941 Lovćensko odred, partisan issue (?). Allegedly 200 sets were overprinted.
