Dear ligabrealii

Welcome to this forum.

This is the postage stamp number 2 of the Principality of Montenegro from 1895 and is available in the perforation variants L 10 1/2: L 11 1/2 and L 11 (L stands for line perforation). Value 1 to 5 Euro (for the second perforation variant). Since I am unfortunately not able to read the postmark, I cannot tell you where it was cancelled.

Best regards from Switzerland

André

The postmark appears to be CETINJE (Tsetinje), the old royal capital.

Hi Rod,

That's an interesting question.

I've just had a look at my used British postage dues and almost all of them have a CDS (or in some cases a rectangular parcel postmark).

Hi vayolene,

That's a very nice card and good strike of the postmark.
