1945 SARAJEVO, Stationery

Sarajevo local provisional issue stamps were on sale for only three days, from 4.7.1945 to 6.7.1945, when they were withdrawn from the post office counters. On the other hand, stationery postcards were used from Jun and until the whole stock was used up in April 1946. Therefore, there are quite a lot preserved stationery postcards available on the market and it is important to know which are more valuable than others - here is a quick guide:
  • stationery postcards of type III (see here)
  • stationery postcards with censorship marks send before 2.7.1945
  • stationery postcards sent abroad or sent from the outside of Bosnia
  • the combination of the above

1945 Sarajevo local provisional issue, stationery type Ia, sent from Ljubljana (14.07.1945) to Sarajevo. Rare usage from the outside of Bosnia.
