• The End of New Stamps Issues?

    From Victor Manta@21:1/5 to All on Sat Aug 24 20:03:10 2019
    "Iceland Post recently announced the decision to stop servicing postage
    stamp collectors due to heavy losses in recent years. The service, which has mainly been used by stamp collectors all over the world, will stop in 2020, RÚV reports. (...) The publication will be continued through next year, and maybe a little bit into 2021, to finish prior plans. (...)

    Iceland Post’s exclusive right to distribute letters is void at the end of 2019. The company is now working on finalizing a service agreement with Icelandic authorities. Directors at Iceland Post state they are willing to continue publishing stamps if authorities consider stamps culturally
    important. They state, however, that the state will have to cover costs if
    the publication is to continue."
