Puch MV Moped on Stamps – Austria 2020.
Austria issued a 230 Euro Cent Stamp on 08 Aug 2020 under the Motorcycles Series. It featured MV 50 V a Moped from the traditional Austrian Puch Brand. It was the successor to the legendary MS 50 which was produced from 1954 to 1982 and because of its slender central tube it was nicknamed “Stangl Puch”.
500 MV 50 were sold to Austria Post. For this they were equipped with unmistakable yellow tanks. Later on in order to cope up with additional heavy post it became MV 50 V , the additional V was for the four geared version. The original one was two gear version.
On the stamp a 1.7 HP, a 50 cc Puch MV 50 V, built in 1979 with characteristic paintwork. It is a classic “Postie’s Puch” which Austria Post has been using for Decades.
