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!

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.

BOOKLETS
In the early 2000's some booklets appeared which contained many of the stamp issues.
The stamps were stuck to the pages of the booklets and cancelled and the pages were enclosed in clear plastic.
Perhaps they were intended to be presentation booklets to ministers and visiting dignitaries, as is the custom in the middle-east.
These booklets are rare and came in two sizes as shown below.
Strange wavy effect on scans due to pages being covered in clear plastic.
