The Alfons Mucha Stamps

This is a complete listing of all stamps, either designed by Alfons Mucha or issued in memory of Mucha or his stamps. As a German I choose the numbers of the Czechoslovak stamps as shown by the German Michel catalogue (MiNr.).

In addition to these official Czechoslovak and Czech stamps, many early Mucha stamps also exist with private perforations. The "Hradčany" and "doplatit" issues also exist overprinted "vzorec" (un-issued specimen stamps sent to the Universal Postal Union in Bern, Switzerland).

Mark Wilson from Winchester, Va. has created a stamp album which has place for mounting ALL MUCHA PRE WAR STAMPS (and other stamps of the First Czechoslovak Republic). He likes to send it to you as pdf-file FOR FREE. Please contact him.
