2023 Stamp Issues

Commemorative Issue "Tom Nairn"

Commemorative Issue - Tom Nairn

Academic cirles in the F.M. have always been interested in developments in small European stateless nations. Of those, Scotland is the one which came nearest establishing their independence in the past decade. The Scottish political theorist Thomas Nairn (1932.06.02 - 2023.01.21) was the most important thinker analyzing the process of Scottish independence in the context of the 4 nations of the UK and of nationalism in general. His work "The Breakup of Britain" is a classic and of high value when trying to understand the causes and development of nationalism in general. Tom Nairn is regarded by many as the Father of modern Scottish independence , having had no doubt that it will finally come, together with the breakup of the archaic "Ukania", his ironic name for the United Kingdom.

The CW 2.00 stamp shows his portrait. It was printed in small sheets containing 14 stamps in small fixed format, each connected to a border field decorated with the Scottish saltire.

Commemorative Issue "Attack on Ukraine - 2022 - 02.24 - 2023"

Commemorative Issue - Attack on Ukraine

In the early hours of 2022.02.24, Russian forces started their renewed attack on Ukraine, using land forces and also long range weapons. In spite of the expectations of many politicians and military "experts", Ukraine was able to take a stand and even push back the invading forces in several regions. Russian forces targeted not only military installations, but also civilian buildings and infrastructure, killing thousands and forcing millions of Ukrainians to flee.

With this miniature sheet, Posta tal Musograd focusses at those attacks on civilians and infrastructure. The School No. 23 in Kramatorsk, depicted on the miniature sheet, was destroyed by a Russian rocket. Three persons were killed by the attack. The miniature sheet carries a surcharge of CW 2.50 which will be donated to Aktion Deutschland hilft . For international sales, the full sales price will be donated.

Commemorative Issue "Dragon - Heraldic Animal of Arnaq, Naquarnia"

Commemorative Issue "Dragon - Heraldic Animal of Arnaq, Naquarnia

The Dragon is the heraldic animal of the city of Arnaq, Capital of Naquarnia. To honour the 750th anniversary of the first Asembleo (Assembly) of the Naquarnian Duques in Arnaq, a stamp was issued with a Dragon motive. The base image used for the stamp is a fresco in Padova, Italy.

The stamp is a technical experiment, too - it was printed on transparent paper. The experiment was not really successful, though, and only a very small number of sheets was printed.
