17-2016 till end 2016:

17-2016 "Joy of Europe":

Date is Sept. 29, 2016 one stamp issue with children's drawing. This time it is "Dalmatian" dog shown on this stamp. Interesting? Nice, as I can say. 70.00 dinar Serbian, something like 1.25 USA$ from dealer will cost, but as postage delivery are very high, it is almost impossible to purchase just one item. 

18-2016 "Stamp Day" (60 years of EUROPA issue):

Oct. 11, 2016, set of two stamps commemorating 60 years of first issued EUROPA stamp topic.
Actually, it is also "Stamp on Stamp" topic, probably also as "Castle on Stamp", "Archaeology"... one nice design in the end. Face value very attractive, as it have just 0.85 USA$ for this two stamps, and it is still available from post offices in Serbia. 

19-2016 "Christmas":

Oct. 18, 2016, two stamps in set, and this time, little bit different design for "Christmas" issues. I noticed, that sheet format come not as usually 8 stamps and gutter, probably this is now sheet of 20 or more stamp on printing sheet, we will see more information in catalog. 
Here we have Fresco from the GRADAC Monastery, "Nativity of Jesus".
Face value little bit higher than previous, 123.00 Serbian dinar (1.10 US$), but for sure, as this topic is very popular, dealer will take much more to sell it.

20-2016 "Victims of the WWII":

Oct. 21, 2016. Single stamp issue, for WWII victims that happen in city of Kragujevac in 1941 year.
Design show us monument in Kragujevac city, "Monument of Pain and Defiance", which are one of well known monument in Yugoslavia, Serbia. 
Single stamp, with low face value of 23.00 Serbian dinar (0.20 US$). Sheet composition as usually, 8 stamps + gutter.

21-2016 "Museum Exhibit":

Nov. 3, 2016, set of three (3) stamps. Still very affordable face value of 119.00 Serbian dinar (near 1.00 US$), I can say, very affordable for this nice design. Here we have (Serbian: "Stećci") medieval monolithic tombstones shown.  Very attractive design showing us tombstones around Serbia dating back to 14th century. This time, it is issued in sheet composition of 10 stamps, so, it will be little bit expensive who collect it in this form.

22-2016 "Children's Stamp:

Nov. 9, 2016 - set of four (4) stamps, with really nice design from the book "A Frog is Reading a Newspaper", J. J. Zmaj. Great illustration of frog, stork,, one really good topic with nice design. Even face value are very affordable (under 1.00 US$), so I will recommend it!
Sheet composition strange and new, as it is sheet of 16 stamps (4 sets).

23-2016 "ART":

Nov. 23, 2016, set of eight (8) stamps, face value of 3.25 US$, whish is very high by Serbian standard. It come in booklet format only, and sheet of booklet is separated from booklet cover, so, not to be surprised. Here we have: Mikhail Afanasyevich Bulgakov (1891-1940), Lajos Zilahy (1891-1974), Simeon Milutinovic - Sima Sarajlija (1791-1847), Laza Kostic (1841-1910), Stanislav Vinaver (1891-1955), Augustin Tin Ujevic (1891-1955), Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944), and Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904).

I understand when Serbia keep remembering Serbian artist on postage stamp, but here we have some artist from other countries, but in the end, it is art to be celebrated. 

24-2016 "Persons of Serbia":

Dec. 12, 2016, single stamp, commemorating Dr. Vojislav M. Subotic, who was founder of forensic psychiatry in Serbia. Low face value of 23.00 Serbian dinar (0.35 US$), design of his portrait and building.
