Here it is almost all from end of 2011 year issue. Missing just one or two items that will be added when it arrive to me. We will start with:

Postage Due 4-2011:
Like usually, Red Cross, UNICEF and For Children. All valid for one week use on every mail delivered at the time. Face value just minimum of few cents, but because it is not attractive topic (except Red Cross), hardly that You will find it available at every dealer around. When talking about market value, prepare for 1$ for each stamp.

33-2011 "Power Plant"
Here I still missing FDC cover for this issue, because that I can not say for sure date of issue, but topic is nice, "100 year of Hydro Power Plant" in Serbia! Strange? Not so - if we know who are Serbian scientist like Nikola Tesla (, and other that made some most important work to our civilization. 

Here is one single issue, with photo of project team of this power plant, and nice design that well present this occasion. Face value of 22.00 dinara, market value around 0.62 $.

32-2011 "Gold Medal - Volleyball":
On September 2011, in Vienna, Austria - tournament, where Serbia take gold medal, and also on October 2011, in Belgrade, Serbia, again gold medal for 1st place. Nice achievement from Serbian sport Team and nice present to nation on end of the year - isn't?

Set of two value, in sheetlets of 8+1 gutter, design is fine, and topic attractive, which will go to "Sport" topic, and not so big market value - just 1.25 $.

31-2011 "Journalist Organization":
Again one nice issue, celebrating 130 years - can You imagine, 130 years of organized journalism in Serbia. i think that this country "beat" many of "great" democratic and modern countries around globe with organization and education organization.

This issue come to public on Nov. 25, 2011, single stamp there, typewriter, book, PC - nice for topic collectors, and also not expensive, will find it for half dollar or little more - 0.62 $.

30-2011 "Christmas":
You know, I like when they make "Icons" in full mean, and not like this one. Even that on stamp is stated "Icons from Church" - better say it is fresco - small difference? Probably for ordinary people, but - artist made nice effort in design, FDC is even better than stamp alone. Issued on Nov. 15, 2011, two stamp in set, much-much bigger face value than ordinary issue - this one with 112.00 + 22.00 dinar - translated to market value, it will take from You around 3.82 $. 

29-2011 "Joint issue Serbia-Brazil":
Nice effort by Serbian Post, to inform public about friendship between Serbia and Brazil, with two stamp that celebrate 50 years of Nobel Prize given to Serbian writer Ivo Andric (1892-1975), and Brazilian writer Rachel de Queiroz (1910-2003). Both are very important for own country and civilization at global.

Issued on Oct. 26, 2011, two stamp in set, nice portrait design and not so expensive - on the market just around 2.00 $.

28-2011 "Stamp Day":
I don't like this design, too much "poor" and avantgard? Probably other mean to celebrate Belgrade and First Philatelic Exhibition made there. Nice info can be find just on the back side of FDC, and from stamp, You can learn just of Serbian early classic issue, and new bridge (recently build) in Belgrade, less visible is there some other architecture from Belgrade, but color composition damage overall feeling of serious design work.

Single stamp, Nov. 25, 2011 - 1.31 $ on market.

27-2011 "1st Serbian Movie":
And which design!!!! Probably Serbian Post wish to remind Turkish - that "We didn't forget"!
Again 100 year celebration! 1st movie after "Life and Deeds of the Immortal Duke Karadjordje"!
Printing sheet of 10 stamp are great! FDC and CM also nice, and look at the stamp! "Head is rolling", in daily newspaper of "Vecernje Novosti" comment go like "The picture looks very nice and clear, without any blinking, and contents itself will provoke a real sensation wherever it will be presented"! Probably true? For sure, Turkish will be upset, because there, on stamp is "head" of Turk, and topic alone refresh memory of genocide  made in Serbia by Ottoman Empire (for which Turk never received any punishment, even today, they are awarded some kind of "leader" around).

Single issue of 22.00 dinar face value, I think it is worth it - 0.62 $ for very good design and topic!
Issue come to public on Nov. 3, 2011, in single stamp, and printing sheet of 10.

26-2011 "Joy of Europe":
Every year, this issue make me angry! Not because topic, but because design! Yes, it is children drawing on stamp, and yes, it is nice - but to celebrate children effort, peace, education and all human value against children, You can manifestate it in much better way! This kind of "kish-kush" drawing will just lower idea and quality!

Issued on Sept. 30, 2011, single stamp, expensive on the market - 1.31$, I think - not worth!

25-2011 "Volleyball Champ Italy-Serbia":
If You see in previous issue, Serbia take 2 gold medal, isn't? Again, best of the best in sport arena! But, surprise - this time also nice design, probably will be short on market! Single issue, 1.31 $ on market, and good luck in exchange. If someone offer You for exchange - take it! Issued on Sept. 20, 2011.

24-2011 "Non-Aligned Countries":
We all know what this countries mean before 50-60 year - isn't? It was one great organization that made some kind of "justice" in "World Order" made after WWII - to celebrate 50 year from first conference that was held in Yugoslavia (again Yugoslavia, it is mostly advanced country at the time?) on 1st to 7th September 1961. Just to remind collectors that 25 countries made this organization (from today's 180+ countries), that give this organization very big political power in UN and that was one of reason, why was  Yugoslavia TORN apart by "big" power like USA and England!!!
Issued on Sept. 1, 2011, single stamp, with low value - on market just over 0.62 $.
