Fischer 1-13k | Michel 1-31 (Ausgaben für die von Rumänien 1919 und 1941 besetzten Gebiete) | Year of issue 1919

On Saturday, 24 May 1919, the Ukrainian army left Kołomyja and two days later the entire Pokuttya area was occupied by the Romanian Army. On 12 June 1919, the Kołomyja post office re-opened for civilians. However, postal traffic was very limited during the occupation. On 14 June 1919, the overprinted "C.M.T." (= Comandamentul Militar Teritorial) stamps and postcards were introduced in some post offices (Kołomyja, Peczenizyn, Zabiorów, Obertyn, Sniatyn, Horodenka, at least). On 20 August 1919, the unsold postal matters were withdrawn in Kołomyja. On 21 August 1919, the evacuation of the Romanian Army began and in the meantime, the Polish army took over the Pokuttya territory.
