With 3 months of the year left and autumn settling in very nicely with its mists and mellow fruitfulness, here is an update of the list of postal administrations which have not so far released any stamps during 2019 (see Blogs 1361 and 1445):-
British Antarctic Territory
British Indian Ocean Territory
British Virgin Islands
Gibraltar (Swiss Post)
Turks And Caicos Islands
Thus 21 Commonwealth postal administrations/services/philatelic entities are yet to release stamps
in 2019 (as far as we know) including 6 British Overseas Territories. It will be interesting to see what happens during the closing months of 2019. I expect that we will soon be reading news of this year’s stamp issues from British Antarctic Territory which mostly all appear together about November of each year. Seychelles is said to be going to release a Gandhi commemorative and it will be surprising if nothing appears from Cayman Islands, Penrhyn and St Helena.
Not sure why "Swiss Post" is in parens beside Gibraltar but the territory has issued several stamps so far in 2019. Subjects include Leonardo da Vinci, Europa Birds, Moon Landing, D-Day. Interestingly, the territory did not issue a SEPAC themed stamp in 2019/ReplyDelete
Hello email@example.com. Thank you. You are right of course that the Royal Gibraltar Post Office has indeed released numerous stamps so far this year but the territory’s alternative private postal service, Gibraltar Swiss Post, has not, to the best of my knowledge, done so.ReplyDelete
hk police just shot a protester today under rule of mainland, but hk post is still issuing those mainland govt related themeReplyDelete
I've learned something new today philatelically: I was totally unaware that Gibraltar had a private postal service. I will have to do some research on that subject. Thanks.ReplyDelete
Hello again. The service is discussed in Blog 1086.Delete
