Here we go!

All imaged illegal stamps are for the year 2007.

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.

2007 (Illegal Stamps)

From this point on all illegal stamps imaged are based on the WNS Stamp system. If they are not listed there....they are illegal stamps!

The criminal illegal stamp producers gave it one more shot for Afghanistan.

After 2007 production of the illegal stamps for Afghanistan appears to have stopped. At least....for now.

This is the end of the study at present for Illegal Stamps for Afghanistan. It shows us the same producers of these illegal issues are producing illegal stamps in the name of many countries. It continues to this day and nobody has yet come forward to punish the producers and the sellers.
