On the Internet, numerous products are offered that fall under the terms „Illegal Stamps“, „Cinderellas“ or „Private Issues“. Since international organisations like the UPU or the FIP are unable to curtail these machinations, I use the existence of my internet pages to inform collectors.
Although legal evidenve is not provided for each individual item, the interested collector may assume that the stamps are not listed in any catalogue, which is an indication of an irregular origin.
Currently, the three listings include 732 positions in total!! Compared to mid October 2018, this is an increase of 90 records = +14%!!
To avoid misunderstandings, it should be noted that the „Russia“ list includes almost exclusively regions of Russia, in which the used „countries“ have no postal sovereignty and therefore no stamps may be issued.
