18, 19, 20-2008:

Heading to end this 2008 year, it come last three issue. By my opinion, it is one "simple" issue, and by my opinion absolutely unnecessary! Also design show us one symptom that all Serbian have, and it is that nothing they can not made "till the end" correctly. This symptom is visible everywhere - from life to art - they will do job properly all the way, but when they feel that end is near - things will be done poorly!

What is good for this year - is just quantity printed, Serbian Post keep one best policy to protect also philatelist, and also future catalogue value for own stamps - it is printed around 30-50 000 quantity, that is one offset for REALLY market need - subscribers and little to the post offices for use - all what need to be done, this way, new mint issue will have one real catalogue prices, and used material will be very hard to find and complete one collection in used condition will be even more harder.

18-2008: come to celebrate 60 yr of convention for Danube Navigation, what is need to celebrate this occasion i don't know! They have every year "Danube convention" issue, and now one "sub-issue" for same topic? Issued on Nov 20, 2008, one single stamp, view of Belgrade and one ship, from "long distance" - nothing good to say, face value just less than 1.00 US$ - affordable but who collect it?

19-2008: Christmas issue, that I never liked - here we have two stamp, showing us one icon and one painting, issued on Nov 28, 2008, two face value of together 66.00 dinar, something around 1.50 US$, that will be good for collectors of "Icon", "Christmas" issue - but hardly that will reach some "good" prices in future!

20-2008: Dadov Theatre - Even that I'm native of Yugoslavia, Serbia, Vojvodina - I never hear of this theatre! I never hear that it have so great significance for Serbian population and have any "standing" in Serbia! Possible in today's time, withs someones "good connection" they managed to have one stamp like this printed. Issued on Dec 5, 2008, with really small face value of less than 0.50 US$ - no big deal at all!
