First World War – The Centenary In Serbian Stamps

First World War – The Centenary In Serbian Stamps

Serbian Stamps

The trigger that started the First World War was the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, on 28th June 1914 in Sarajevo. The war ended in 1918; some 65 to 70 million people from 36 countries were mobilised, most of those called to arms being from Europe. The Entente Powers, gathered around the United Kingdom, Russia and France, waged war against the Central Powers lead by Austro-Hungary and Germany. In one of the most gruesome confrontations in the history of the human race, more than ten million people died and twenty million more were wounded; the Kingdom of Serbia lost to the war more than a million of its citizens – 370,000 of them under the arms (26%).
Serbia was the very first country under attack. The Austro-Hungarian offensive in 1914 ended miserably with a tremendous defeat of the imperial army in the battles of Cer, Kolubara and Drina. The Serbian army was headed by Prince Alexander Karageorgevitch, the Supreme Commander, and marshalls (“vojvodas”) and generals Živojin Mišić, Stepa Stepanović, Radomir Putnik, Petar Bojović and Pavle Jurišić-Sturm. After initial victories, the Serbian army was forced to retreat to Albania and further to Greece, together with the Serbian King Peter I and Nikola Pašić, the Prime Minister, under the massive Austro-Hungarian onslaught in 1915. The survivors recovered in the Allies’ military hospitals in the Corfu island and Salonica, Greece, and Bizerta, Tunisia. In the autumn of 1916, the Serbian army achieved a great victory in the battle against the Bulgarian army at Kajmakčalan, and two years later, together with the Allies, launched an offensive to break through the Macedonian Front.
The war ended by the Treaty of Versailles on 20th June 1919, with a new territorial recomposition of Europe as the consequence. Germany lost its colonies, and on the ruins of the Austro-Hungarian and the Ottoman Empires new countries were born: Austria, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, and, thanks to the victories on the battlefield and diplomatic skills, the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. The territories of the Ottoman Empire outside Anatolia were assigned to the Entente Powers as protectorates, whereas the core territory of the Empire was reorganised into the Republic of Turkey. The Russian Empire, leaving the war after the October Revolution in 1917, ceded large parts of its territory to newly-emerging European countries: Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland.

Newly released Chicken stamps pre-sell for crazy price (Jumped by 20 times of Face Value )

TO celebrate the Year of the Chicken, China Post recently released a set of Dingyou Year special Chicken stamps, which go on sale Jan. 5 next year. Just as the printing of the new zodiac stamps began, the stamps have already become a surprise hit on the internet. The price of the pre-booked stamps has reached 388 yuan (US$58.3), about 20 times its face value of 19.2 yuan.

    The new Chicken stamp series consists of two stamps: One depicts a rooster walking, and the other depicts a hen with her two babies, to symbolize happiness and family. The designer is the famous artist Han Meilin, who designed the Fuwa dolls for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.

    Although the Chicken stamp will be on sale next year, some sellers are taking bookings now. The booking prices fetch from several yuan to hundreds of yuan on Taobao. For example, a set of two Chicken stamps with a 2.4-yuan face value sells for 8.1 yuan, and two complete sets of 16 Chicken stamps with a 38.4-yuan value are selling for 598 yuan.

    According to a seller on Taobao, the zodiac stamp is a gold mine for investors. “The price of Chicken stamps will be even crazier next year. I sold Monkey stamps for 598 yuan last year, and now it has increased to about 800 yuan already.”

    However, according to the official website of China Post, the small complete set of Chicken stamps only sells for 39 yuan and the big complete set only sells for 88 yuan.

    Will the price of the Chicken stamp rocket to a historical high as the Monkey stamps did last year? Li Xiaoning, specialist from a stamp investment committee, pointed out that there is no relationship between the price appreciation and designer. It mainly depends on the supply-and-demand situation in the market.
