Here we go!

All imaged illegals are in the order listed in UPU Circular 30 page 10 through 13.

Many of the following illegal stamps can be found as imperforates and as color proof sets as well.
Most times now (2016) the souvenir sheet sets and sheetlet sets are sold individually. Many times the stamps have been removed from the sheetlets and souvenir sheets. All of these "tactics" are used to avoid detection by UPU circular descriptions.
