These came with the rest of the set, but they don't show up as part of the set on StampWorld, nor do they show up in any of the other catagories for Romania. Postage Due, Tax stamps, etc...

What am I missing?

re: Romania 1972 Buildings

Thank you very much Radu! I've been acquiring stamps from Romania for some time now, but am just now getting around to organizing and mounting them into an album. I'm finding it to be a fascinating area with a very interesting history. Your offer to help is greatly appreciated!

I am intrigued by the early issues. They have a real french look and some interesting colors. Sorting by watermarks and perforations can turn an accumulation into a nice expanded collection.

re: Romania 1972 Buildings

Few early issues, see Scott 48-59, were printed in France. Later on, the plates were brought to Romania and used for next few more sets. This is the reason that the stamps look like "French" stamps.

The stamps questioned above are part of a long set, see Scott 3664-3694. The set was printed during a huge inflation period after, I would like to say in quotes, "1989 revolution". The CTO set is available in almost any philatelic site and stamp club, at a very low price, almost free! In the middle of 2005 inflation got under control and a monetary reform changed the older currency to a newer one.

I am also from Romania, now living in USA. Do not hesitate to ask more questions. If I do not have an answer, I am sure that Radu will be ready to fill the gap.
