Here we are again with next issues in 2022 year with few more new issues.
Personally, I don't like this "quantity" of issues, which reach till now 29 this year, and we are just on August, so in next three-four months some more will come.
Why it is "strange" for me? We have a lot of countries that issued a lot, really lot of postage stamps per year!
Yes, but Serbia is modern country, that really don't need to make profit from postage stamps, Post Company is public, and pert is in Gov't ownership, so money is not so big problem.
Probably, management just wish to make "own" income and not thinking or care about "ruined" reputation of "banana" republic.
So, here is next issue:
It is to celebrate 100 years of the Rowing club "Red Star" from Belgrade. 100 years is not small period, and if it deserve to be on postage stamp? Yes, as it is period longer than some countries exist on this small planet! June 06, 2022, interesting design and minimal face value.
21-2022 "Peter the Great":
Seriously? Yes, Serbia and Peter the Great connection? Timing of issue?
June 09, 2022, design from painting of unknown author, Hermitage museum.In sheet composition it is more attractive than on FDC.
22-2022 "Police Day":
Interesting sheet composition, stamp design is more to say that Serbian Police is here for "helping" people in need than to give message that they are here to protect citizen, but overall it is fine.
June 15, 2022, sheet format of 8 with gutter between.
23-2022 "Belgrade Mosque":
This issue is under name Art & Architecture, Bajraki mosque in Belgrade. Design not bad, really not bad, and with minimal face value, it can be very quickly out from market!
June 20, 2022, standard sheet composition of 8 and one label on middle.
24-2022 "Nature Protection":
Still can not understand why they continue with this issues? It lost the meaning to have it in this way to "help" in Nature Protection, as (probably) money from this issue will not reach "final destination", and more that bothers me is design!!!
June 22, 2022, two stamp in set, standard sheet composition of 8 and one label on middle.
25-2022 "Telecom Serbia":
If it was "private" issue, than I will agree, but it is not! Company as company, 25 years in existence, providing connection between people. Nothing special I see here to deserve stamp as memorializing this topic.
June 29, 2022, one stamp, simple design, minimal face value.
26-2022 "Serbia - Algeria":
I don't have information if it is "Joint issue" or not, but it come out to the market for 60th anniversary of diplomatic ties. To be fair, it is one very good design, really good as in color composition, elements shown, fruit of "nation" on label. Sheet composition of 6 stamps and gutter on between which give "beauty" to this issue. Wirth to have it even that face value are little bit higher than minimal.
July 04, 2022.
27-2022 "Prominent Serbs":
Say what You want, but it is little bit as "stickers" and less as postage stamps!
July 07, 2022, six stamps in set, hardly that people will "run" to obtain it!
28-2022 "Air Serbia":
95 years of flying! Really great achievement at this "turbulent" time where Air Companies go down every single day! Design is just perfect with logo of company from beginning till today, color choice just fit in topic. Keep an eye on this issue!
July 08, 2022, sheet composition as usually 8 with label on middle!
29-2022 "Dragan Dz'ajic":
Strange? Yes, very strange to issue stamp for one football player, he is "prominent"? Yes, but not more and not less than other football players in Serbia, and in Yugoslavia where he grow to the name he have today. We will see what will be with this issue, but if it will be as with "Djokovic" issue, than it will dissapear from market very quickly!
Aug. 02, 2022, single stamp and Red Star!!!
So, that is it for now. Hope that we will continue!
