Issue n° 29 - 1984

"25th Anniversary of the CEPT"

Number of countries : 35
Debuting countries : none
Returning countries : none
Withdrawing countries : none
Common design : Bridge
Countries using their own design : Gibraltar
Designer : Jacky Larrivière (France)

In order to celebrate the 25 years of the CEPT, it has been decided to use a common design again as it was the case before 1974.

Note : Even if collectors prefered the thematic issues as it was since 1974, this 1984 issue gave a great visibility to the Europa stamps issue due to this common design. Most stamps issued in late April or early May.

Eurovision Song Contest 1984

my personal favorite that year: Alice & Franco Battiato "I treni di Tozeur" (Italy)
