My first covers from Mongolia and Serbia!!

Many thanks to both J.Dashdondov and Rastislav Spevak for these awesome covers posted from Mongolia and Serbia respectively! Special thanks also to Vural Oguz, director of ICCC in providing these special arrangements.

Mongol Post, the Mongolian national mailing services has an impressive collection of different stamps in a wide variety of themes. Often they depict traditional Mongolian themes like noblemen or Buddhist deities, but also the animals that inhabit the steppe, mountains and desert of Mongolia and important events such as the visit of president Bush. More international themes include Space, joint issues with countries like India and even Princess Diana.

The stamps franked on the Mongolian cover are: Giant Pandas, 1977 (top right), Livestocks of Mongolia, 2004 (horse stamps) & Butterflies and moths, 1990 (second row, left).

The lovely stamps franked on the Serbian cover belong to the WWF, protected Species - Black Woodpecker (Dryocopus martius) series, issued on 6th April 2007.


Both covers were postmarked on 10th February 2010 and took 12 days to reach me.

  1. 12 days to reach You is very good for todays service that postal authority worldwide provide! I have sometimes, mail delivered from USA to Israel for almost 30 days, and where air plane travel 3 hour, I received mail in 14 days - by way, Serbia #1 come long time before this on Your envelope, and also - if You need, I can send You scan of #1 modern serbia postally used. From other country, I can send You scan of SSSR #1 also postally used. Both stamps are for sale.
