No stamps were issued for Afghanistan in 2000

Here we go!

All imaged illegal stamps are for the year 2000.

Many of the following illegal stamps can be found as imperforates and on fake First Day covers.
Most times now (2018) the souvenir sheet sets and sheetlet sets are sold individually. In some cases the stamps have been removed from the sheetlets and souvenir sheets. All of these "tactics" are used to avoid detection by UPU circular descriptions.

If you have purchased any of these stamps from a dealer or if that dealer offers them, you should avoid that dealer! You will only be supporting illegal stamp makers who are only ripping you off.

On this page I have separated the Scott Catalog "unauthorized printing" sets from the verified illegal stamp sets. You can see the extreme difference in styles showing us that other illegal stamp producers became involved.
