Information and Reference of illegal stamps for Mali

Flag of Mali

A new U.P.U. circular is "in the works" for Mali and should be presented on the U.P.U. website this year (2019) It will denounce all stamps and souvenir sheets that are on the market dating 2016 through 2018.

The following images are of illegal stamps produced for Mali. 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 find out what stamps are real and legitimate for Mali visit the UPU WNS website and look at the Mali section.

The Universal Postal Union WNS website

I have found the Colnet online catalog to be helpful as well although there are "conflicts" between what is listed there and what is on the WNS system.

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.

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.


In 2019 the production of counterfeit illegal stamps in the name of Mali continues unhindered.

As of February 2019 Mali has not issue any new stamps. This is verified by no stamps being listed on the WNS system, Colnet Catalog, Stampworld.com site and every major catalog. Yet stamps dating 2019 of the same styles as the previous illegal stamps are coming onto the market. The user globalphila on eBay who is located in Spain is the first to offer them exclusively. This is hard evidence that the seller is either directly associated with counterfeit illegal stamp producers or is a producer himself. This seller needs to be investigated on an international level and stopped permanently.

Following are images of the illegal stamps I have found offered for Mali dating 2019. This page will be updated as more appear on the market. 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.
