MALI ILLEGAL STAMPS
2011

Information and Reference of illegal stamps for Mali according to U.P.U. Circular 72

Flag of Mali

The Universal Postal Union published Circular No. 72 on May 5, 2014 denouncing illegal stamps at the request of the Postal Administration for Mali. This Circular was validated by Ms. Juliana Nel, Director of Markets Development of the UPU Secretariat, who was the senior officer at that time overseeing philatelic issues. Here is a .pdf file of the circular.

UPU Circular Number 72

The circular describes all the sets that were officially issued and denounces all others. The issues described are all dated between 2002 and 2014. I note that several of the issues announced as official issues in the circular are not listed in the WNS system nor on the Colnect Catalog. Why?

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

The Colnect Online Catalog for Mali

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", "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.

2011

In 2011 the nightmare production of counterfeit illegal stamps in the name of Mali continues.

In 2011 Mali did not officially issue any stamps according to the circular nor any other catalog or site.

Therefore any stamp dating 2011 in the name of Mali is a counterfeit illegal stamp!

Following are images of the illegal stamps I have found offered for Mali dating 2011. 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!

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