IVORY COAST ILLEGAL STAMPS
2017
Cote d'Ivoire

Information and Reference of Illegal Stamps for the Ivory Coast Created in 2017

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.

2017

In 2017 the production and sales of illegal stamps in the name of Cote d'Ivoire continue unhindered.

In 2017 Ivory Coast officially issued 8 different stamp issues.

Following are images of the illegal stamps I have found offered for the Ivory coast dating 2017. 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!

From 2016 to present day we can see there are 4 main sellers of the newest illegal stamps on eBay. All are "big" dealers. Because of the fact that now (2018) these dealers are offering the latest and "greatest" illegal stamps for the Ivory Coast, it shows collaberation with or evidence that they are directly connected with the producers or are the producers themselves. They are:

snowflower2008
eren3049
marlen-stamps
europolstamps

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

Note the "Hanmart" watermark is not part of the stamp vignette. Just another dealer to avoid until they stop offering illegal stamps. "Big" stamp dealers like these like to "play dumb" in regards to illegal stamps. I can assure you that in most cases they know exactly what they are trying to rip you off for!
