CONGO DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC ILLEGAL STAMPS
2004

Information and Reference of illegal stamps for Congo Democratic Republic

Flag of Congo Democratic Republic

The following images are of illegal stamps produced for Congo Democratic Republic. Please remember that the producers of these illegals are not only greedy, they are crude and sometimes disgusting which is the nature of these people.

At the time of creating the pages for Congo Democratic Republic I have found the WNS system to be completely unreliable as a source because only two stamps are listed on the site for 2002 and then.....nothing.

The Universal Postal Union WNS website

I have found the Colnet online catalog to be helpful although there are "conflicts" between what is listed there and what is on the Stampworld Catalog. I consider Colnet to be the most reliable online source at this time.

The Colnet Online Catalog for Congo Democratic Republic

I have found the Stampworld.com Catalog to be helpful as well although again as stated there are "conflicts". they list stamps that are described as illegal stamps by the 1997 circular simply because Michel catalog (known to be influenced by dealers) is listing them.

The Stampworld Online Catalog for Congo Democratic Republic

Or use a respectable catalog like Scott or Stanley Gibbons. Do not listen to these dealers trying to convince you they are something other than illegal stamps.

You will find the styles and designs of the following illegal stamps completely different.

Here we go!

Many of the following illegal stamps can be found as imperforates and as color proof sets as well. Some exist on fake First Day Covers too.
Most times now (2019) 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.

Sellers that call these "private", "locals", "cinderellas", "unauthorized" are deceiving you. They are illegal stamps produced by a stamp dealer that is bent on ripping you off! Some sellers state "we offer them because they are on the market". Well how about you use a different dealer because that seller is "on the market"? If the stamp societies, auction sites and all other venues kicked these sellers off of their sites then they would have to comply or lose their ability to sell anything.

The following images are free for the use of all to use to alert the public to them. If anyone wants to make a public list of users on eBay, Delcampe and elsewhere who are selling these issues....fine by me since the UPU, PWMO and others appear to have given up or have not been updated in years.

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.

2004

In 2004 the production of counterfeit illegal stamps continues. The majority still being produced by the UK based stamp dealers.

In 2004 Impressor S.A. continues to produce abusive issues in the name of the Congo Democratic Republic. In 2004 it appears they stopped production of "normal" issues but produced a number of the two stamp gold foil souvenir sheets. The majority of the Impressor S.A. issues never were even used in the Congo. They were produced and sold through affiliated dealers to mainly topical collectors.

The Scott catalog does not list any issues because they have no valid proof of any postal usage within the country. Scott catalog notes that these issues and the later stamps dating 2002 through 2012 were never available in the country and are therefore not listed.

The abusive stamps are listed in the Michel catalog due to influence by the agency to get them listed there. We can see by the massive availability on the market of these issues that Impressor S.A. overproduced the stamps simply to sell to non savvy collectors of topics. There are probably hundreds of thousands of each issue made as the market shows. Some of the dealers are holding stocks of the stamps numbering in the thousands. In a sense of rarity, there is none, so any seller claiming they are rare.... is lying to you.

The Colnet catalog list some of them but nothing in comparison to what was produced. The Stampworld catalog lists the majority of them. The styles of the abusive issues are the same in most cases and are therefore fairly easy to recognize. They are similar to the styles of illegal stamps and carry the same topics which have nothing to do with the country of origin. Because none were ever sent to the country nor used there it is my opinion that they are valueless pieces of paper made by unscrupulous people intent on gaining easy profits by breaking just about every U.P.U. rule for philatelic best practices.

I wish to note here that the "styles" of the gold foil souvenir sheets produced by Impressor in this year have an uncanny almost exact style as the fake gold foil stamps of the previous year. I note that the Colnet catalog does not list any "issues" for this year but that the Stampworld catalog does list these gold foil "issues".

Here are a few examples.

2004 Impressor produced Scouts Eagles and Mushrooms
Gold and Silver Foil Souvenir Sheets of 4

These were also produced as souvenir sheets of two. Note the extremely high face values. The face values were and are meaningless.

Following are images of the illegal stamps I have found offered for Congo Democratic Republic dating 2004. There may and probably are more. All of these I found in searches on eBay and Delcampe and all are illegal stamps made by producers bent on ripping you off!

Anyone who wishes to contest this is welcome to show proof that the stamps are genuine issued stamps and this page can be updated to show it. At this time no catalog lists them.

I present them in alphabetical order of titles as there is no logical order for illegal stamps.

In 2004 the immoral counterfeit producers created a mass of "paintings" fake stamp sheets and souvenir sheets. The majority being nudes in one form or another. None of them would have been approved by either of the Congo postal authorities. Yes many are paintings by the masters but many are made by crude what I and real artists consider cartoon drawings by amateurs.
I will identify the really offensive ones without images.

Here we have U.S. First Day Covers with counterfeit illegal Beatles stamps placed on them as if to increase the value or attractiveness. Sorry to say that now because these counterfeits have been added to the covers, the covers will be banned from resale on eBay and Delcampe soon. The person who applied them to the John Lennon Covers should be ashamed. I think if the U.S. postal authorities knew they would want them recalled as applying U.S. cancels on counterfeit stamps is not to their liking.....
