Stamps. The history of the Pridnestrovian philately began in 1873 with the opening of the Tiraspol county post office. Today, the problem of the region’s stamp collecting is that all postage stamps of the Pridnestrovian Stamp State Enterprise can circulate only within the Republic. The main reason is its internationally unrecognized status, which also arouses interest among stamp collectors.
