To find out what stamps are real and legitimate for the Ivory Coast visit the UPU WNS website.

The Universal Postal Union WNS website

Here we go!

All imaged illegals are in the order listed in UPU Circular 63 page 10 through 11.

Many of the following illegal stamps can be found as imperforates and as color proof sets as well. also found on fake First Day Covers.
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.

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.

NOTE - The illegal postage stamp issues produced in the name of the Republic of
Cote d'Ivoire and already reported (UPU circular No. 269 of 28 July 2003) are
unfortunately still being circulated on the philatelic market.

These consist of a number of miniature sheets comprising six stamps each
inscribed with a value of 100F, the year 2002 and the International Rotary or
Scouts emblem, relating to a number of themes:

- seashells, fauna (dogs, butterflies), flora (orchids)

- famous people (Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe)

- sport (motorcycle racing, motorbikes, table tennis)

- vehicles (vintage cars, fire engines, trains)


This is the end of the UPU Circular 63 for the Ivory Coast. It shows us the same producer of these illegal issues is producing illegal stamps in the name of many countries. It continues to this day and nobody has yet come forward to expose the producers.
