#25 reprint issue of #1:

here it come great expenses for simple collector like me!!!! This is second in row, and if I didn't made explanation for this reprints in previous blog page, I will do it now (or again - I almost don't remember).

First issue are printed in set of 4 (0.25, 0.40, 0.50 and 0.60 euros). Printed on Dec 15, 2005, on this issue, near logo of Post Montenegro didn't exist name "Post of Montenegro". Two reprints are issue, but not for complete set, first reprint have just 2 value, 0.25 and 0.40 euros, printed in sheet of 20, with year 2005 inscribed in black color, and second reprint in 3 value 0.25, 0.40 and 0.60 euros, printed in sheet of 50, with year 2006 on bottom middle.

Existed also other minor difference, like color (really invisible but different from first print), and sheet arrangement - I think that it will be hard for common collectors to keep collection in perfect full state, just because of this kind of difference.

On scan You see this second reprint, sheet of 50 (on picture you see just folded sheet, it is too large to fit on scan), and cost of full sheet of 50 (3 value) are GREAT fully prepare for dealer 130.00 euros.

#24 come to navigation (Navy Ship):

I really don't understand why they named it "Navigation" because on design we don't see nothing that can suggest this topic, except that ships need to be navigated, but all things on this planet have same need?!

Issued on August 1, 2007, single stamp face value 0.60 euros, but dealer are keeping it still at 2x face value, if You collect ships - be sure to obtain it even if You will need to pay 1.20 euros for this single.

Design is correct, little bit too much of "fog" used, but it is correct if we take in account that "navigation" is in topic. What is nice for this issue - is printing sheet of 8 + 1 tab - and this tab have an lighthouse on it - Hmmmmmmm - too much for collectors?

No - we need to ad also two kind of CM - what was need for it I don't know, one in blue color (sunrising?) and second in brown/gold color (sunset?) - not something that I like, it just keep more expenses for collectors - but, be fair - who care for collectors?

Prices for sheet of 8+tab go far as 9.60 euros, and CM can reach (2 pcs) 4.40 euros, FDC will cost You just 2.20 euros.

#23 come to celebrate Peter Lubarda artist, 100 year:

issued on July 27, 2007, with one value stamp, face value of 0.40 euros, and as today, dealer still keep it on double priced 0.80 e, I think that with time it will come down, but no possibility that will be very cheap.

Design is absolutely WRONG, color choice and combination of portrait and picture/drawing, go wrong. Not visible text, hardly to understand great work of this person - what to do!

FDC is selling for 1.80 euros, sheet of 20 stamp will cost You 16.00 euros, and MC just 1.80 euros.
