This is a 1999 postage stamp issued by Republica Saharaui (the Saharan Republic) - a disputed region to the south of Morocco and the west of Mauritania along the Atlantic coast of Africa. The Morocco Post Office in a Universal Postal Union circular has stated that they do not regard these stamps as legitimate, therefore there is no Scott stamp catalog# assigned.
TOPIC - (Cat Breeds) - "Persa rojo jaspeado" -- Red-mottled Persian
- Issued 1999 / Denomination: (28) Pesetas
** Cancelled Collector Issue - with original gum (unused)

    Interesting...how many of these were printed? Do you know a lot about stamps? I have some I'd like your opinion on if so. There is just so much detail to know with them, but I may have a "good one". Hope so anyway. Now I just have to locate them :)

    This particular one was not authorized as noted in the description above and therefore didn't even have a catalog# assigned. There is no way of knowing how many of these were printed - many foreign countries don't even keep an accurate counting, they just print, print, print.
    Re: your second question - I have over 70,000 different stamps and I purchased the (very expensive) Scott catalog series to identify them. Many regular issue stamps (those printed for several years for postage use) cannot be identified properly merely by a picture - commemorative issue stamps are only printed for a set time so they are more easily identified. - In fact, just by googling the country name and "postage stamps", they can be easily identified by any amateur.

    Isn't this the mean cat who enjoys a lot of Facebook notoriety? and he looks so mean that I am only going to like him. Please don't take offense.

    Thanks agh, I do have a small section of the Scotts. Still wasn't sure when trying to compare mine. It's a U.S. stamp, I think it's 1920, or maybe that's when the post office canceled it. I just can't quite remember exactly...I believe it to be the profile of Washington, mmm maybe 5 cent...I have to dig it up to be sure. If it's what I hope it to be, then it's well worth digging up, that's for sure! Sometimes I hide things even from myself...
