Similar to the Macedonian army artistamps features before, here is a set commemorating the Georgian Army involvement in Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Here are two sets of stamps commemorating the Iraqi provinces of Salahaddin and Basra. Notice the value on the Salahaddin stamps in Arabic is actually reversed, an error!! :D 

Again on eBay I've seen a few items listed which might appeal to some inexperienced Iraq collectors or non Iraq collectors which are infact very common printing errors. During the period of economic sanctions between 1991-2003 Iraqi stamps were printed cheaply and lots and lots of printing errors existed and could be reproduced by your […]

Funny printing error forgery

This ridiculous attempt at fooling people into thinking this is a genuine error has to be the most outragious I have seen so far on eBay. Judge for yourself. The World Cup 2002 MS, one has only the world cup and the other has the world cup missing, how convienient !!

Written by ahmed zaki Turn the stamp 90CW, you will have the honour to see a stamp of Baghdad issue with HAIFFA (Palestine) cancellation. check (Ottoman Empire Cancellations part2), it can be no. 54, 55, 56, 57 or 58 (see pp. 76), i cannot identify which one precisely because only about 20% of it is […]
