I have found the Colnet online catalog to be very helpful. You will see the illegal stamps differ greatly from genuine issues.

The Colnet Online Catalog for Kyrgyzstan

Some of the illegal stamps are shown in their Cinderella section and noted as such. It is extremely incomplete though and some have dating errors.

I have found the Stampworld.com Catalog to be very helpful as well.

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. Catalogs like Michel and Yvert appear to have been influenced by the sellers of illegal stamps getting some listed in their catalogs. Sorry to say but they are betraying the honor and trust of the stamp collecting community by allowing these criminals to influence them.

Here we go!

UPDATED 2020

When I created these pages in 2018, a lot of information has been discovered since then. I found better images for some of the illegal stamps and found more of them as well. Links to the online catalogs for references are added as well as new notes. Hopefully this new information will help even more collectors and dealers to become aware and spread the word on this scourge on our hobby.

Many of the following illegal stamps can be found as imperforates and on fake First Day covers.
Most times now (2020) the souvenir sheet sets and sheetlet sets are sold individually. In some cases 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.

Because there are so many illegal stamps for the year 2000, I have split the year 2000 into two webpages to make it easier for you to download the pages.

2000

I stated on the 1999 page the problem became much worse. The British illegal stamp producer and associates were having a hayday pumping out these fake stamps. Yet again you can compare them with the authentic stamps that were issued in 2000 and see they are nothing like them.
The illegal stamp makers saw some good sales in 1999 so they expanded on many of the topics used that year in 2000. A large number of these fakes are being sold and are readily available on the internet. All imaged illegal stamps are for the year 2000.

These are not located anywhere hardly except by one notorious illegal stamp seller.

2000 20th Century Icons Illegal Stamp Souvenir Sheet of 1

Sorry for the tiny image but it is all I could acquire at this time from yes, that same notorious counterfeit illegal stamp dealer. The British counterfeit producer combined both stamps from the above block into one stamp on the souvenir sheet. Cheaply done and cheaply made.
