Issue n° 19 - 1974


Number of countries : 23
Debuting countries : none
Returning countries : Sweden
Withdrawing countries : the Netherlands, Norway

Since 1974, a common theme replaces the common design system used since 1956! Only the CEPT logo (or letters) on each stamp indicates that the stamp is a "Europa stamp".

Note : Interesting to note, that the CEPT logo is depicted on the stamps of only 15 countries, the other 8 countries just add the CEPT letters on their stamps. Most stamps issued on the 29th April.
