Note:

It is wellknown, that stamps from some African and some Asian countries are made "quick and dirty", only to make money. They are not worth to collect (see above). The pictures are imprecise, the text is wrong or has errors and the print is bad. But they are flooding the market with exorbitant prices. These stamps were offered by stamp dealers and it is difficult to decide, if ships on Stamps should take them on the internet page or not.
However, everyone should be able to decide for themselves what he wants to collect.
