Fraudulent Chess ‘Issues’
Warning! There are huge numbers of fraudulent and fake chess ‘issues’ on ebaY. There are no Afghan chess stamps after 1989. All post-1989 chess issues claiming to be from Afghanistan are fraudulent. All 'stamps' from South Ossetia are illegal and are not valid postage stamps. There are dozens of fraudulent chess issues purporting to be from Angola, Mali, Myanmar, Rwanda, Sahara Republic (and variants of same), Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan etc. They have no postal validity and are completely worthless.
For more detail, see PWO Illegal Stamps.
