1361. Commonwealth PhilatelIc Entities Which Have Not Issued Stamps During 2019.


 One of my favourite threads on Stampboards is that which identifies which countries have or have not issued stamps during the course of the ongoing year. It's great fun seeing if one of those infrequent issuers has finally released a stamp after, in some cases, some years of philatelic abstinence. 
 There are 87 current Commonwealth philatelic entities, 17 of which, indicated by having a full stop after their names, are not yet known to have issued any stamps during 2018. Of course we should really list not countries but postal administrations/philatelic agencies and so on which have released stamps but for this particular exercise of identifying which Commonwealth philatelic entities have released stamps I'll make it a little simpler by just identifying country names unless they have more than one permitted issuer of postage stamps of some sort.
   The country name is presented in the same way as in the Stampboards world issue thread but here when a Commonwealth philatelic entity has been known to issue a stamp I will remove a country's name from the list and add it to a second list which will be started below the first one. 
  An e after an entity's name indicates that forthcoming issues have been announced but not yet released

  1. Haha you pipped me at the post in that I was considering starting a similar thread at stampboards for 2019 (this is DJCMH on Stampboards) but have not had chance yet to set it up do to time constraints with work over the New Year Holiday (a downside with retail, you rarely get holidays off). Will be interesting to see how 2019 plays out.

  2. Happy new year Gene W. I think my decision to do this is due to to my rather worrying pleasure in creating lists. Of course you have taken the much harder job as you are listing the whole world while I only have the Commonwealths territories to worry about. Good luck!
    WK.
