2000 Stamp Issues



All stamps issued in 2000 are still available for purchase, although some issues are available only in very limited numbers.

Submarine Mail issue "Submarines"

FM200001 Posta Podmorska

During the Civil War between the Musogradij Respublike government and the Musogradij Territorial Base Forces (MTBF) nationalists under Lord Dershowo, the land connection between the Respublike controlled territories in the central and northern regions and the Murwillian and Naquarnian regions was broken by MTBF forces progressing north east from Kosnice. As the MTBF also controlled the seas around Kosnice, a Submarine connection was set up to transport mail and materials between Sv. Jelena and Murwillumbah. For this service, 3 stamps were issued, depicting submarines. The design was derived from a similar stamp series issued by the Republica Espanola in 1938. The stamps were only valid for this mail service which ran until the capitulation of Republican forces on 2000.02.14.

Commemorative Submarine Mail Miniature Sheet "Submarines"

FM200002 Posta Podmorska Miniature Sheet

As a gift for high ranking personalities of the Respublike, a miniature sheet was issued which contained all 3 Submarine stamps in unchanged design. It is not known if it was used postally for the submarine service as its date of issue was only a few days before the Submarine mail service was suspended. This was the last stamp issue of the Musogradij Respublike.

Commemorative Issue - "MTBF Victory"

FM200003 MTBF Victory / Svitjaga issue

To celebrate their victory and to replace the current Musogradij Respublike stamps, the Nationalists issued two stamps depicting views in the vicinity of Flagstaff Hill where the capitulation of Republican forces took place. As the state form was still under discussion at the time, the stamps display only "Musograd", togeter with "Svitjaga" for Victory, and the date of the capitulation. All inscriptions in Cyrillic as the usage of Latin letters was rejected by the Nationalists.

FM200004 Means of Transport Definitives
