Transcaucasian Federation


Note - in many cases, clicking on the image may open a larger copy of the image for better inspection.


The Transcaucasian Federation of the Soviet Republics of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia was established on 12 March 1922.  Separate issues continued to be made for each of the three republics for a period after this, however on 1 October 1922 the Postal Services were centralised and the following issues appeared in 1923.  The Federation was absorbed into the USSR on 6 July 1923 and in early 1924 its stamps were replaced by the regular Soviet stamps.

Scott lists them in a separate country section in its volume containing the letter T.  SG shows some in a separate section and considers some overprints to better belong in its Azerbaijan section.  As for Michel, while it almost certainly lists them somewhere, I'm afraid I can't locate where they cover these stamps (probably in a different regional volume).
