New Issues 2014
(July - September)
This page collects only issues released during
the year 2014, period July to September.
As it is not such obvious as it looks to find
this information, this list is probably not yet complete.
In certain countries, joint issues are often announced on
the day of the issue and sometimes it takes months before
this information and the corresponding stamps reach us. Data
on missing issues or supplementary information, particularly
for countries, which are producing joint issues exceptionally,
will be highly appreciated.

Initially, a general advertisement document showed in front page a personalized French stamp with this identical design. French stamps related to this issue do exist. In fact a so-called Collector with the common design had been produced on the basis of a private initiative and distributed to selected VIPs (apparently UPU members). Of course this item was not available for sale, but a copy of such a Collector became available (see below). As these items are privately produced, we will not consider them as part of this joint issue.
So far, Syrian stamps have not been seen.
