I checked my dates at the weekend and my records indicate we published the preliminary list of stamp issues for Cyprus in 2012 in the early part of February, just after the January 2012 stamp release.
However, after a phone call to the postal services office yesterday it seems nothing is forthcoming in the immediate future.
"Why is this?" I hear you all screaming at this point.....
Well, if you recall back to November 2011 we were promised there was to be a release of the Definitive stamps of Cyprus around the same time as the Christmas stamp issue - but it never happened.
Neither did it happen at the end of 2012 either :-(
Hmmmmm, so what is afoot we ask ourselves?
All kinds of thought were going around in our heads but there is a perfectly simple explanation....
Did you get it yet?
Yep, the price of mail in Cyprus will be increased sooner or later which means the price of Cyprus postage stamps will be on the up. At the moment, it appears the Government/Postal Services departments have not yet figured out what the new prices are going to be - so watch this space....
And, remember where you heard it first!
P.S. Don't forget the new Cyprus stamp issues will be released on 30 January 2013 and we're wondering what the new reprint of the Cyprus Refugee Fund stamp will look like.
Will it be the same but a different colour again as in the past?
