Venezia Giulia

First Issue

As with Trentino-Alto Adige. the first issue, in November 1918 consisted of overprinted Austrian stamps. The 40 heller olive is particularly scarce, but not so scarce as the top four values, 2, 3, 4 and 10 kronen. The 10 kronen is exceedingly rare, as only 37 were overprinted by hand as presentation items.
