'Coat of Arms" 1991 year
Issued on Dec. 20, 1991, and valued in "new" currency named TOLAR (probably they want to be little bit as american Dollar), this set was just under mark as "standard" design.
Nothing specific or "special" in design, mountain Triglav as symbol of "new" (un)independent country, that never exist before.
I have it in stock from regular subscription directly from Post of Slovenia, but...
After short period, it was discovered that they have in two types, according Michel catalog it is numbered with number 2-5 Type I and Type II.
Difference is in "line" over letter PTT from down left corner, where Type I have it drawing from left to right down line and Type II have it from down to up two lines.
Problem is that it is NOT second print or plate reconstruction in first print, it is just in design from same plate but another plate position.
This issue, avoided me for more than 30 years! Can You imagine it?!
I have direct connection to Post of Slovenia, and many collectors in Slovenia simply never have it in collection and unable to deliver me even one sample of full set!
Last time, before 15 years, I decided to buy one lot of 500 used Slovenia stamps, and there I discovered just one sample of #2, so it was big disappointment for me in finding it.
In the end, I give up - till last months when I made contact with person that have one set spare for selling, and not in "perfect" combination, this person too have it problem with used set, as just three stamps are alone and one stamp come on cover.
So I go for it, and checking on Michel catalog price was affordable 12.00 euro full catalog price I come as acceptable, than I check on local catalog SLOVENKA, and booooooom!
Local catalog value it at 80.00 euro (2016 year edition), and seller ask stable 80.00 euro + postage for used condition (shown), and full 100.00 euro for mint, nh condition!
Good price for this kind of material? and why so big disparity between two catalog?
No one know why Michel value material so low even if they have information, that Type II is in very low quantity printed, but they have it as is.
Conclusion is that, if You have a lot of used material from Slovenia, first check for this Type II option and second, keep in mind, that complete collection without this option worth much less than "normal" collection.
That is why I call it STAMP MUST HAVE!
