Russian Republics and more ... 01 A Siberian Federal District - Touva 3

The Philatelic Period after 1995

What happened after 1995 ?

A lot of so called 'private issues' has been printed and are available on various 'stamp' sites.
The term 'private issue' is just another way to say : 'illegal issues', 'fake issues' or simply 'cinderellas'.

Just to complete the article on Tuvan stamps, I'm posting this sheet with the most adorable Teletubbies, issued in 1998.
We see, in order of appearance :  Dipsy, Laa-la, Po and Tinky Winky.

Cinderella issue of Tuva 1998

Among those issues, famous persons, wildlife, scouting, WWF, ... and other popular themes can be found.
