2263. ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฒ Manx Stamps Feature Local Artist’s Work.


New issues.

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฒ Isle Of Man Post Office -

15 March 2023 - Artworks by Michele Tramontana - 6 stamps. Designed by Isle of Man Advertising and lithographed by bpost and perforated 11.5 Rating:- **

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช An Post (postal service of the Republic of Ireland) -

3 March 2023 - Irish Women in public service (2261). I have received a communication from Brian Warren, to whom many thanks, who has kindly sent some fascinating information about this issue - 

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ณ Postal service of Mongolia -

2023 - 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Mongolia and the United Kingdom  - 1 miniature sheet containing 2 different stamps. 

  Of course Mongolia has never had any links with The Commonwealth or the former British Empire but I illustrate this item because, while many countries at present issue stamps to commemorate various anniversaries of the establishment of diplomatic relations with countries such as China, Russia, Taiwan, Japan and many more (often they are gifts from the countries whose relationship with the issuing country is being celebrated), issues noting a country’s diplomatic relationship with the UK are very infrequent. Aptly, the Mongolian postal service has included illustrations of each country’s first postage stamp and early means of transportation. Well worth collecting. Rating:- ****.
