Hello,

I am not very experienced with philately but after some research I have found out that collection I have is quite rare. Is there someone more experienced with rare Yugoslavian stamps from 1880 until 1944 - including provisional, porto, proof etc. stamps?
Also Slovenian, Croatian, Bosnian, Montenegrin, Serbian - from same period.

Thanks everyone in advance!

Yugoslavia, and associated areas (non-kingdoms) did not start issuing stamps until 1918. The kingdoms did issue stamps in the 19th century, but these areas are not flowing with rarity.

If you are looking for someone to give you an appraisal, then that is not something that can be done on a web site. You would need to find a dealer in your area for that so that the stamps can be examined as needed.

My standard advice (also for others who wonder about an acquired stamp collection) is to find a suitable catalog, perhaps in a nearby library. You can already find much information online at colnect.com. Perhaps you have already done so, which would be very good. Also, looking up the history of that area might be helpful to understand the circumstances under which these stamps were issued. It is very interesting, albeit tragic enough.

Thank You on reply. I have tried to search online after gathering some information from people who might know something about it.

Problem is that they are not regular stamps, most of them are proofs, different paper, error or tests.

Particular one I am interested in is KGCA, being the abbreviation for the Carinthian Governmental Commission Zone A. Part of Slovenia, which wanted to unite with Austria, rather than Kingdom of SHS - later known as Jugoslavija.

I have proof overprint "KGCA" on piece of paper.

I am aware that some pieces like this are very rare and I am hoping to find here honest collector, who could help me learn what I really have.

Thank you

I'm certainly not an expert in your area, not even close! But maybe you could send a scan of some of your more interesting items for a few of the experts here to check out. Just a thought...

With proofs and the like, you're going to need an expert in the area. They could be worth alot, a little or not much. It just depends.

I looked in my old Yvert & Tellier catalog (1934). Those stamps are Due stamps. The four top are called Ljubliana printing, 1919. There are two kinds of print: lithographed or typeset. Their price range is 0,50 to 2.50. THose are Freench Francs 1934, but surprisingly is close to current Euros or US$.

The three right ones are dated 1920, same price range. Minor price differences between mint and used,
