SOME NOTES ABOUT STAMPS ISSUED UP TO 2005

Most stamps issued between 1994 and 2005 were of very poor production quality.
Perforations were very rough and irregular and sometimes hardly existed at all. In fact the one and only perforation machine actually broke down completely at one time.
For this reason you will find many stamps with very ragged perforations and sometimes perforations running through the stamps.
When this has been the case I have separated stamps by cutting along the margins with the result that some stamps margins appear to be imperforate.
Sometimes the perforating machine was set incorrectly resulting in all stamps from sheets having no margins on one side! These stamps will be shown in the illustrations.
When I do not have sufficient stamps to make up complete sets I am offering these separately
- all at only 2.00 to 2.50 GBP [2.4-3.00 Euros or 3.00 - 4.00 USD] each. So pick up some bargains!

2005
In 2005 a new set of 23 stamps appeared. The designs on the stamps are a mixture of previous issues but with new values and completely new designs which would not have been possible in earlier years. e.g. a Kurdistan Airlines airliner and scenes at Erbil Airport.
The stamp values are now much higher and the set has 6 stamps valued at 50 ID, 10 at 150ID, 3 at 300ID, and 4 at 500ID.




2003
During 2003 many stamps were issued, most with very rough perforations.
Although there were no defined sets of stamps I have 'made up' sets because the stamps were sent to me in separate shipments
as they were released but most stamps can be bought as separate items.
Many are available in blocks of four, and if you require pairs/blocks then please email
