1945 SPLIT, Small Petar

"Small Petar" stationery overprinted with the 1945 Split local provisional overprint is among the rarest of postal objects of all 1945 provisional issues in the territory of former Yugoslavia. Only five of them are known, so Croatian philatelists call it Croatian "Blue Mauritius".

1945 Split local provisional issue, "Small Petar" stationery, sent from Split (21.VI.45) to Zagreb. Censor cancellation No. 3, Split. One of the five known "Small Petar" cards. Certificate Vilfan, Zrinjšćak.
