Banja Luka Philatelic Exposition

This stamp was issued on 13 June 1942 to commemorate the Philatelic Exposition in Banja Luka.

Varieties with an engraver’s mark can be found at position 56 of some sheets.

MiNr. 81 I Engraver’s Mark

The stamps were printed in a pane of four sheets, with each sheet consisting of 100 stamps (10×10).  In the fourth sheet, the stamps at positions 9 and 10 were printed without the “F.I.” inscription, in effect creating two MiNr. 65 stamps in a sheet of MiNr. 81.

These stamps can therefore found as follows:

  • MiNr. 81/65 F I — vertical pair, MiNr. 81 over MiNr 65
  • MiNr. 81/65 F II — block of four, MiNr. 65/65 over MiNr. 81/81
  • MiNr. 81/65 F III — horizontal pair, MiNr. 81/65
