THE BOB DYLAN STAMPS
Thank you to Xavier Cunillera for the idea of this page and for the scans he sent.

 

OFFICIAL and ILLEGAL STAMPS::

The stamps below are official items, issued by the postal administration of various countries, where they can be used for sending letters.
Below is the list of countries, most of them from Third World, where Bob Dylan stamps have been issued:
     République du Bénin
     République Centrafricaine
     République Démocratique du Congo
     République de Djibouti
     Gambia
     Grenada
     Guiné-Bissau
     Madagascar
     Maldives Islands
     République du Mali
     Mozambique
     Union of Myanmar
     République du Niger
     Rwanda
     São Tomé e Principe
     Sierra Leone
     Solomon Islands
     Somali Republic
     Tanzania
     République du Tchad
     République Togolaise
     Ukraina
     USA (aborted project)

For political reasons, the Russian Federation calls some others 'illegal', as "the regions on whose behalf these stamps have been issued form an integral part of the Russian Federation and that, according to the provisions of the UPU Regulations and Russian Federation legislation, they are not authorized to issue postage stamps independently".
The concerned Dylan items are listed here anyway:
    Republic of Kabard-Balkaria,
    Republic of Kalmykia,
    Republic of Tatarstan,
    Republic of Tuva,
    Republic of Udmurtia.

You can read more about these 'illegal stamps' here.
