DJIBOUTI ILLEGAL STAMPS
2007

Information and Reference of Illegal Stamps for Djibouti Created in 2007

Flag of Djibouti

The following images are of illegal stamps produced for Djibouti. 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 Djibouti visit the UPU WNS website and look at the Djibouti section.

The Universal Postal Union WNS website

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.

In 2004 when Djibouti produced circular 226 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", "Cinderella's", "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.

2007

In 2007 Djibouti officially issued 2 different stamp issues.

Djibouti 2007 30th Anniversary of Independence Michel 810
This stamp was issued on June 27, 2007 according to the WNS system. It was issued as singles and in souvenir sheets of four.

Djibouti 2007 Mahamoud Harbi Michel 811
This stamp was issued on August 17, 2007 according to the WNS system.
Djibouti 2007 Mahamoud Harbi Michel 811

Note how all the genuine stamp issues are of the same style and how the themes are about things within the country. Djibouti has always been a conservative stamp issuing entity since 1977.

Following are images of the illegal stamps I have found offered for Djibouti dating 2007. 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!

In 2007 the illegal stamp producers produced a similar quantity of illegal stamps as they did in 2006. The topics still basically the same. Many "mimic" the officially issued souvenir sheets.

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