Information and Reference of illegal stamps for Congo Democratic Republic

Flag of Congo Democratic Republic

The following images are of illegal stamps produced for Congo Democratic Republic. 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.

At the time of creating the pages for Congo Democratic Republic I have found the WNS system to be completely unreliable as a source because only two stamps are listed on the site for 2002 and then.....nothing.

The Universal Postal Union WNS website

I have found the Colnect online catalog to be helpful although there are "conflicts" between what is listed there and what is on the Stampworld Catalog. I consider Colnect to be the most reliable online source at this time.

The Colnect Online Catalog for Congo Democratic Republic

Check out their Illegal Stamp section as well. It is upgraded as of 2023 and shows counterfeits that may be missing here.

I have found the Stampworld.com Catalog to be helpful as well although again as stated there are "conflicts". They list stamps that are described as illegal stamps by the 1997 circular simply because Michel catalog (known to be influenced by dealers) is listing them.

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.

You will find the styles and designs of the following illegal stamps completely different.

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 2015 the contracts with Impressor S.A. appear to have been ended. Good!

Both the Colnect and Stampworld online catalogs do not list anything for this year for the Congo Democratic Republic.

In 2015 the Russian based dealers who I believe are also the producers appear. The company is called Topnimarka.com located in Moscow Russia. They have created a new website called stamps-world.eu as well in 2019. Everything they are selling on both sites is fake and counterfeit stamps. They are of pure evil mass producing counterfeit illegal stamps in the name of many countries. The "styles" unique to themselves, these people are producing and selling counterfeit stamps at a massive rate dating to current times. They are even producing fake stamps for countries controlled by Stamperija. Stamperija's owner has stated that he knows who most of the counterfeit producers are and has some control over stopping their productions at least for countries he has contracts with. This is not the case for this producer. Being located in Russia, I guess they believe that nobody can stop them. I am exposing them which is the first step. I will note them all "Russian Made Counterfeit Illegal Stamps" should the British producers fire up again....

Anyone who wishes to contest this is welcome to show proof that the stamps are genuine issued stamps and this page can be updated to show it. At this time no catalog lists them.

Noting the use of the name "R.D. Kongo" is a sure sign of being counterfeit. The country never used nor uses it.

This is a work in progress. Because the above named dealer likes to not use the name of the country in his listings to avoid detection by experts, we have not obtained all counterfeit issues this producer has made in the name of the Congo Democratic Republic....yet. As time progresses, we will add to this and other pages, images and information as it is found. This dealer should be permanently stopped by the countries taking legal action against him and his associates there in Russia.

In 2016 this dealer continues.
