1941 MEĐIMURJE, SF Exhibit

This single frame exhibit is the most complete display of stamps, specialties and postally used items of the Unofficial Local Issue of Međimurje. The exhibit is based on my research showing that two main types of coat-of-arms were used, each with two subtypes and that a total of ten different clichés were assembled during the four separate printings.

This is a 2nd revision that was reorganized and supplemented with some additional items. The exhibit contains especially rare material, some of them unique and exhibited for the first time. Among others, I would highlight:
  • a unique complete set in block of four from the second printing
  • one of two known 0,25 din se-tenant vertical pairs with "Hrvatska država"
  • one of two known letters franked with “Hrvatska država” error stamp
  • a unique Easter greeting card sent from the post office in Čakovec
