1987 Stamp Issues

In 1987, internal conflicts in the Partije Komuniste tal' Musograd broke out which even led to military conflicts in the eastern part of the country, the Balanda regions. A radical faction of Anarcho-Syndicalists, supported by Air Force officers, was able to gain the upper hand and take over the party and government. Only 3 stamps were issued in that year, all of them high-value ones.
