IVORY COAST ILLEGAL STAMPS
2011
Cote d'Ivoire

Information and Reference of Illegal Stamps for the Ivory Coast Created in 2011

Flag of Ivory Coast

The following images are of illegal stamps produced for the Ivory Coast. 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.

To verify what stamps are real and legitimate for the Ivory coast visit the UPU WNS website and look at the Cote d'Ivoire section.

The Universal Postal Union WNS website

According to the postal administration for the Ivory Coast all officially issued stamps for the Ivory Coast starting in 2002 are listed on the WNS website and are updated to the present time. This means that if the stamp is not listed on the WNS system that it is an illegal stamp. There is no argument against this that can be made. If you have an argument against any of the following determined illegal stamp issues as to their validity, then take it up with the Ivory Coast postal administration. You will find...you cannot win. You can also 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.

In 2004 when the Ivory Coast produced circular 63 they did not know that there were more illegal stamps that were being circulated than what they listed. This has occurred for many of the victim countries. To correct it I have researched them all using the major catalog listings and the WNS system as reference to what was officially issued.

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 (2018) 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 and search terms.

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.

2011

Due to political conflicts stamp production virtually ceased for the Ivory Coast. In 2008 two stamps were officially issued. After that it was not until 2013 that any more official stamps were issued for the Ivory Coast according to the WNS system.

It is strange that illegal stamp production virtually ceased between the years 2005 until 2009. See the previous pages to see what happened.

In 2011 a new player creating an entirely different style of illegal stamps was introduced. This style and others has and is being offered by the major illegal stamp seller Marlen Stamps. As you will see, evidence will show Marlen Stamps to be directly connected or possibly even one of the producer themselves of illegal stamps. Tolerating this dealer to remain an ASDA (American Stamp Dealers Association) member is really unbelievable. This dealer is deceiving unknowing collectors by not even describing his illegal stamps, illegal first day covers and other junk on eBay as to what they are. This breaks every code of ethics and the rules for a standing member of the ASDA to remain. Simply because this "dealer" is a big dealer in the eyes of the board members supporting the Linn's newspaper with full page ads (of which this dealer does not offer illegal stamps on), they turn a blind eye to the very fact that they are allowing an unethical and immoral stamp dealer to remain as a member.

You want to fight me on it? I have a whole data file of proof of this dealers unethical and immoral stamp selling practices. He is sooo either stupid or "bold" as to watermark some of his images of illegal stamps he is selling on eBay with the company name! Defamation? Damn right! Defamation with absolute proof of actions. Just try to file a complaint.....

Any stamps with the Cote d'Ivoire country name on them dating 2009 through 2012 are illegal stamps. There is no denial of that fact.

Following are images of the illegal stamps I have found offered for the Ivory coast dating 2011. 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!

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