Issue n° 20 - 1975


Number of countries : 23
Debuting countries : Cyprus (Turkish post)
Returning countries : none
Withdrawing countries : none

First Europa issue of the Turkish part of Cyprus. Due to the political situation on the island of Cyprus, the stamps issued by the Turkish part of the island aren't recognized on an international level. Even if those stamps bear the Europa logo, they are not official Europa stamps but most of the Europa stamps collectors collect them as they issue Europa stamps on a regular basis since 1975 !

Note : Again, many countries not using the logo but only the CEPT letters. Most stamps issued on the 28th April.
