Carpatho-Ukraine Want List

I am in the process of developing a new exhibit.  The working title is "Carpatho-Ukraine 1944-1945".  I have identified a number of instances where additional material is needed (and in some cases desperately needed).

The current draft has 9 frames with the following plan:

1. Liberation Postmarks (2 pages) 4. U˛horod First Edition (13 pages)   8. Third Definitive Issue (6 pages)
2. Local Issues (12 pages) 5. U˛horod Second Edition (14 pages)   9. NRZU Postal Stationery (13 pages)
3. The NRZU Postal System (2 pages) 6. First Definitive Issue (25 pages) 10. Soviet Ukraine (3 pages)
7. Second Definitive Issue (35 pages)

The exhibit can now be seen on my web site: Carpatho-Ukraine 1944-1945

The exhibit includes many oversize pages, especially in sections 6 and 7.

The following is my want list.. Uncataloged varieties would also be very useful.  And one can never have too many covers!

(Items prefixed with * are especially wanted)

Local Issues


* Horthy 2P, 5P with watermark IX (double barred cross)

* 18f+18f Double Card
* Rose Fieldpost card with boxed overprint

Many needed - especially Charity issues, Famous Women, Porto and various postal forms.  Details on request.
