Tomo Katuric is for sure the most famous and most rewarded Montenegrin philatelist. Especially noted are his collections “Occupation of Boka from 1941 to 1945”, and “Post office history of Boka Kotorska from 1809 to 1875”.
The collection is made of 250 letters, that is, of 128 sheets of paper. The collection has letters from the Napoleon age which until 1850 were only sealed, which is qualified as pre philatelic, but also it has letters with stamps, that is, it has the letters from the period after the foundation of Association of Post offices of the world in Bern. His valuable collection begins with a letter sealed in Trieste in 1811m which arrived by ship in Perast, for captain Petar Kosovic.
Katuric’s collection was partly made from the letters of his family correspondence, the one which from the middle of the XIX century was left by his great grandfather Mato, then also by his grandfather Tomo, and then his father and uncle, former the tradesman, and the latter construction engineer.
Except the worthy philatelic collections Tomo is also a famous gallerist, and in his private collection he has the works of Vojo Stanic, Milos Sobajic, Luka Berberovic, Milic of Macva, Karanovic and of other famous painters.
