WARNING #1

BEWARE FAKES beng offered on Ebay.com


So called "Palestinian Authority" items currently being offered mainly from Lithuania and Hong Kong on Ebay are BOGUS
and not worth the paper they are printed on.
These fakes are also offered on other so-called philatelic dealers' websites in the UK where they are offered as "thematics" or on Ebay as "Private Issues".
The same applies to many items allegedly from Iraqi Kurdistan offered by the same sellers.
They are actually just worthless junk and have absolutely no philatelic value whatsoever.

You have been warned!

The reason for the low value 20 Fils stamp?
Postage to Europe now costs 420 Fils and because there is a good stock of 400 Fils stamps the 20 Fils has been printed
The stamp in the miniature sheet has a 1,000 Fils value, as does the the Civil Defence MS.

POSTAL & OFFICIAL STAMPS 1994 - 2003
Some earlier issues are already proving hard to find.
With the exceptions of the 1994 Officials and the Bethlehem booklet FDC's were issued for all releases.

Stamp issues of The Palestinian Authority are used on both local and international mail.
To see examples of covers & cancellations on mail sent to U.K. click here
You will see some items listed as sheetlets. These are not miniature sheets/souvenir sheets/blocks but
are small sheets of usually 4,6,8,or 10 stamps and the only format in which the particular issue was printed.
These sheetlets often have descriptive or decorative borders. If you would like to buy the stamps in sheetlet
form then please contact us for further information about any specific issue[s].
Until 2005 the stamps were beautifully printed in either Germany or France.The Mahmoud Darwish and the unreleased
[banned by Israel] Al Quds issue were printed in Tunisia.
Recent issues from Gaza were designed and printed in Gaza and should be regarded as 'locals' and although
so far none have been seen actually used on mail Stanley Gibbons have given them catalogue status.
The latest "Christmas for All" and "Jericho 10,000 Years" were printed in Bahrain and released in Ramallah but not Gaza.
The images shown on the webpage below are degraded in order to speed up downloading time.
Unless stated to be otherwise, all stamps, MS's, S/S's, sheetlets, etc; are um/mnh and FDC's are official and unused.
Some notes on SG catalogue listings and information given therein..
Stamps listed below are sold in sets as shown by Michel. The European agency at the time of issue listed the sets in this manner.
Sets are offered for sale as defined in the Michel catalogue. [SG list the first sets "Flags" and "Sights of Jerusalem" as one set, and also treat the surcharged stamps as one set].
The 1995 handstamped sets as shown in SG Part 19 were not recognised by the issuing agency in Germany - indeed they were not aware of their existence as recently as 2003. The full story of these handstamps can be found on another page on this website. Israel objected to the stamps being valued in Mils as this was the currency of Palestine before the country's occupation, so a local rubber handstamp was manufactured as a temporary measure to surcharge the Mils stamps with Fils until steel cancellers became available a couple of months afterwards.
FDC's of the first 'Flags' issue have a 15th August 1994 Gaza Jericho circular date stamp, and FDC's of the first issue of Sights of Jerusalem set have FDC's cancelled on 1st September 1994.
Later FDC's with the officially surcharged 'Mils' Flag set have an oval cancel dated 10th April 1995, and the covers show the Palestinian Authority flag.
The surcharged Sights of Jerusalem FDC's also have a cancellation date of 10th April 1995 but with a circular special cancellation and an illustration of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
Other FDC handstamps were applied locally.
Most, but not all, FDC's have special First Day of Issue cancellations relating to the issue and some covers have illustrations. Unofficial FDC's were also printed in Gaza and can usually be recognised by the poorer quality illustrations [offset printed] on the covers which are of a lower grade of paper than used for official covers.[example]



You will notice that very few stamps, miniature sheets and FDC's are still available due to the steady demand and growing interest in Palestinian Authority issues.
I hope to offer more 1994 to 2005 issues from time to time but numbers will be very limited, so if you don't see what you want you should keep visiting the webpage.

The Israelis objected to the first issues of the Palestinian Authority stamps having values shown in Mils [the old Palestinian currency] so the stock of stamps was overprinted.
The 'Flags' set, 'Sights of Jerusalem', and 'Gaza/Jericho Peace Agreement' miniature sheet were all overprinted by the German printers but prior to these overprints reaching the Palestinian Authority temporary handstamps were applied to these sets and miniature sheet plus to the 'Officials' set which was not overprinted by the printer. See full story by clicking here.
Stamps overprinted with these handstamps are listed in the SG Part 19 catalogue but are grossly undervalued. A number of stamps valued in Mils and overprinted with the handstamps are available but unfortunately no complete sets.

Fake & Bogus issues
Many bogus stamps and miniature sheets purporting to come from the Palestinian Authority can be found on internet auctions and dealer's websites.
Although some of this rubbish is sold 'innocently' - i.e. the seller has no idea that the stuff he/she is selling actually is bogus,
a UK dealer knowingly offers bogus/fake/illegal Palestine & WWF material and also states on his website that he is a member of the APS and ATA,
so collectors may be duped into thinking that everything they are being offered is genuine when much of it is actually just junk.
The rubbish is not described as fake but is mixed in with genuine material.
Many other bogus Palestinian Authority stamps are sold on Ebay by a 'Top Rated' Kowloon, Hong Kong seller with a 99.9% satisfaction record who sells
mostly fake bird stamps, and a fake Chess issue is currently offered by a Connecticut, USA seller.

Listed below is every genuine issue from the Palestinian Authority from 1994 to 2011 .
If you see anything not on the list below then it's FAKE.
