Postage Due  1894-1913

Special Montenegro stamps for the collection of unpaid or under-paid postage on letter mail, called Postage Due stamps, were first issued in 1894, continuing through 1913.  In 1905, a special set of overprinted, commemorative, Postage Due stamps were issued, as a companion to the overprinted, commemorative, postage stamps for the New Constitution celebration.  Except for the 1913 issues, which feature a portrait of King Nicola I, all of the Postage Due stamps of Montenegro feature a denomination numeral as their central design.



The eight Postage Due stamps shown above were issued in 1894.  They are lithographed and perforated 10 1/2, 11, or 11 1/2.

These Montenegro stamps are printed on paper that is watermarked  "BRIEF-MARKEN" or "ZEITUNGS-MARKEN" in double-lined capital letters across the middle of each sheet.  A single stamp may only show a small portion of a single letter from the watermark, or it may not show any trace of a watermark at all.
