An independent country in Asia, to N.W. of Pakistan. Now a republic the country was formerly ruled by monarchs from 1747 to 1973.

For all those who have colorful stamps of Afghanistan on various topics like birds, cats etc from the period 1990 to 2001, please be informed that no stamps were issued by the post office during this period and any in circulation for these years are considered spurious. I will try to put examples of such issues later in another post on the blog.

All the stamps here are arranged in order of the date and year of issue, reference Stanley Gibbons Stamps of the World Catalog 2013, Vol. 1. My first stamp of the country is the 7 Afs, Oxen issue, SG 566 from the Agriculture day set of three.
