Bosnia - Republika Srpska:
EUROPA 2019 issue, which is (as I think), one of the best, if not, only best issue, with GREAT design, where artist just made it perfect.
Birds, local birds better say, in FULL LIFE, from close range head.
One nice experiment with printing sheet composition
...and in booklet format...
In principle, I rarely praise new issues, but this time it "catch" my eye.
I saw few issues on EUROPA 2019 from many countries, and it is all in some kind of artist drawings, expression, and imagination.
But, Republika Srpska decided to go for "close range" head shown of this majestic birds!
Correct decision, and it will have good impact on demand for this issue.
As we know, Republika Srpska have one very conservative issuing policy, and quantity printed are very low, with range of 15 000 to 20 000 of each issue.
In booklet format, we have just 10 000 printed.
EUROPA issue, as usually come with this 20 000 sets printed, and just 500 FDC out from printing.
If we calculate little bit, 20 000 sets printed, that will give us just 2500 sheets of 8+labels on market!
Price, which, little bit high, but to be fair, this issue deserve it!
Set alone have an face value of 2.61 US$, if You can buy directly from Srpska Posta, but You will need to add money transfer cost, shipping and handling cost, than the final price can go very high.
Sheet of 8+label, probably will reach very-very high with price, as Michel catalog value it high, and at present, I don't see it offered on eBay.
My information from Sarajevo, say, that even if You pay 40.00 US$ per sheet of 8+1, no one will offer it for sale, so...
So, keep an eye on this Republika Srpska issues, as this country have very conservative issuing policy, small quantity with popular topics!
