Armenia stamps

Armenia used Russian stamps from the middle of the 19th century; in 1902, they began adding overprints to these Russian stamps especially for Armenian use. These overprinted Russian stamps are generally considered the first specifically Armenian postage stamps by collectors. Armenia became an autonomous state in 1918; its first stamps continued the tradition of overprinting Russian stamps, however (in 1919). Finally, from 1920 until 1922, Armenia issued its own stamps. Many of these early Armenian stamps are valuable but won't break the bank of most collectors. In 1923, Armenia (along with Azerbaijan and Georgia) began using the stamps of the Transcaucasian Socialist Federative Soviet Republic, but these were immediately discontinued in favor of Russian stamps, which Armenia (as a Soviet Socialist Republic) used until 1991. In 1992, following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Armenia began again issuing its own stamps. Modern Armenian stamps are colorful, well-designed, and cover a wide range of commemorative subjects. Whatever era or style of Armenian postage stamps for sale you are hunting, check the listings.

Afghanistan stamps

Afghanistan has a long postal history, and has issued many highly collectible stamps in its time. It borders Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, China, and Pakistan. The Emirate of Afghanistan began using its own stamps in 1871. These earliest stamps were square stamps, used at a 45º angle to make them diamond-shaped. They were not canceled in the usual sense, but had bits torn off of them for cancelation. Regular-style cancels began in 1891. For several decades, the stamps of Afghanistan progressed in design rather slowly, even with the country's 1919 independence from Britain. The new state, the Kingdom of Afghanistan, lasted until 1973; it was only in the 1960s that bolder and more colorful designs began to be seen on Afghani stamps — in fact, many collectors feel that the designs were improved in a direct effort to appeal to international philatelists and increase revenue for the country. Most stamps from this era use French (usually POSTES AFGHANES) as well as Persian. The Republic of Afghanistan issued stamps during its rule from 1973 to 1978, after which the country was renamed again, to the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan. When the communists fell in 1992, Afghanistan became the Islamic State of Afghanistan until 2001, though from 1996 there was a struggle with the Taliban, who would rule part but never all of the country and who began the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. From 1992 until 2001, there were no official stamps issued in Afghanistan. However, one interesting subset of Afghanistan stamps are several nice-looking issues made between 1996 and 2001, while much of the country was under Taliban rule. These stamps have subsequently been declared illegal and invalid, but are collected by many international buyers as an interesting slice of history in this storied and volatile region. The country is now called the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, and has resumed the issuance of official stamps. The listings of Afghanistan stamps for sale

Taiwan stamps

Taiwan's stamp history begins in 1886, when the Chinese territory was issued its own stamps. Up until this point, Taiwan had been long known as Formosa, since 1544 when Portuguese explorers first saw the island and called it Ilha Formosa — "Beautiful Island". After a period of Dutch colonization, China took over the island in 1662, using the local word rendered in English as Taiwan. (Both terms would continue to be used, even to the present day.) Japanese rule of TaiwanIn 1895, Japan realized one of its ambitions by gaining complete control of the island of Taiwan. The Japanese ruled Taiwan for exactly 50 years, working hard to overcome local resistance and to fully incorporate the Taiwanese into Japanese society. In 1945, having lost World War II, Japan gave Taiwan back to China. However, at the very outset of Japan's control over Taiwan, there was significant resistance and stamps to reflect it: in 1895, the so-called Black Flag Republic — more officially known as the Republic of Formosa — mounted a spirited revolt against Japan, including the issuance of its own stamps. Japan quelled the revolt with relative ease; the Black Flag Republic stamps are beloved by collectors now. After WW2 → Taiwan ROCFrom 1945 to 1949, Taiwan remained a part of China, though the changes in that larger country also had repercussions for the Taiwanese. And so, in 1949, Taiwan was given to the Republic of China, an entity which had begun in 1912 and which had at one time ruled over large parts of mainland China; most of the country was classified as the People's Republic of China — i.e., modern-day China as it's generally thought of. The PROC considers Taiwan ROC one of its autonomous territories.
