Sovereign Military Order of Malta - post office

Post by carmel »

Hello All,

I will be in Rome and thought to try and post some stamps from the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.

Can one actually post stamps? Where are they located and how is it done?

Thanks,

Carmel

Hi,

you can buy in Rome, Via Bocca di Leone (Sovrano Militare Ordine di Malta).

I think there are some mailboxes.

The post office is located inside the SMOM consulate/building.

There's a thread on Stampboards from a member who visited, and posted lots of pictures of the building and the interior.

Just to cross-reference and make it easier for anyone searching in future, SMOM is discussed/illustrated in this thread

The Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, of Rhodes, and of Malta, otherwise known as the Sovereign Military Order of Malta or SMOM is a Roman Catholic order based in Rome, Italy.

In 1950, the SMOM issued a set of cinderella letter seals depicting locations and people associated with the Order, and they were sold for 1 Italian lira.

The Order's modern postal administration, known as the Poste Magistrali, was instituted on 20 May 1966. They have been issuing stamps for both postal and charitable reasons ever since.

A large portion of stamp collectors consider them cinderellas, but they are collected by some.

Is there a catalog for Sovereign Military Order of Malta?
