Alaskan Malamute stamp from Abkhazia

This lovely head study was issued by Abkhazia in 1996.
The economy in the former Soviet Union is in very sad shape. To bolster their income, the independent Russian states have started issuing topical stamps in the hope that the world market will buy them and not require the associated postal services. Whatever the reason, we are all winners when such lovely stamps and souvenir sheets are issued. This one is from Abkhazia.

Alaskan Malamute stamp from Abkhazia Alaskan Malamute stamp from Komi

The economy in Russia since the break up of the Soviet Union has such high inflation that stamps that were previously issued are not of enough value to mail a letter any more, so to remedy the situation, the local Post Offices have taken blocks of five "old" printed stamps and overprinted them with a new image and a new value. The Alaskan Malamute shown above on the right is one of these "Russian Overprints" from Komi. These stamps come in a set of five different colored stamps all with the same overprint. Last time that I got in some overprints, I assumed that they would remain available. I was wrong and I never saw more copies of those. I expect these to be equally as rare and collectable. There is no telling how many of the overprints they produced (not many), since they were never designed to be sold on the world market. They are of value only for a short while until the actual stamps can be printed. The stamp on the left was ultimately issued by Abkhazia with the Alaskan Malamute image from the overprint from Komi.
See description of Abkhazia above.
The Komi Republic is situated in the extreme North-East part of Russia. It is a multinational state, since the population of Komi Republic is estimated at 1.2 million citizen and consists of 100 nationalities. The Komi Republic is now a democratic legal state included into the Russian Federation. The republic has unique stocks of mineral resources thanks to their location, diversity and quality.

Alaskan Malamute stamp from Ajman

Ajman is the smallest of the United Arab Emirates. It is immediately to the north of and mostly surrounded by Sharjah. Like most of the country, Ajman is in the process of changes which amount to a transformation. The central area is rapidly being modernized and it is clear that Ajman has no intention of being left behind the other Emirates. It is here that the Victory speedboats are built and Ajman is 2determined to enjoy a share of the United Arab Emirates' victories for itself. This stamp was just issued in 2001.

Alaskan Malamute stamp from Altai

The collapse of the Soviet Union has created a gold mine for stamp collectors. The local governments have issued some wonderful stamps in an effort to sell them to the world market and not even have to provide the associated service of mailing letters with them. This is a real boon when you see the number of new Russian stamps issued for this one breed alone.
Altai is also from the Russian block and is in southeast Western Siberia. It was noted as the largest agricultural producer in the Soviet Union. The disintegration of the Soviet Union is bringing to light the enormous diversity of the indigenous people who were kept under its rule. The Altaics were a nomadic, herding people for millennia. They had a native language and customs. Several related groups are now considered more self-ruling, such as Dagestan, Kyrgyzstan and Altai. In 1997, Altai started to issue unique stamps and some of them were of different breeds of dogs. By 2000, they issued this attractive Alaskan Malamute stamp for our collections.

Alaskan Malamute stamp from Argentina

This stamp came from a set of 6 that had exquisite drawings issued in 1999 by Argentina. The illustrations are by artist Gustavo Deveze.
Argentina, Country in South America, occupying most of the southern half of the continent east of the Andes Mountains. It is the second largest country in South America after Brazil. It's capitol and largest city is Buenos Aires. Argentine consists of diverse terrain, stretching from the tropics in the north to the subpolar region in the south. In the middle of the country are the Pampas, vast fertile prairies that produce much of the country's agricultural wealth. Since the late 19th century, Argentina has exported large amounts of agricultural goods, including meat, wool and wheat. The country also has an extensive industrial sector. Argentia has had a volatile political history. Its most famous president Juan D. Peron was very popular with the working and lower classes and concentrated on developing the country's industrial sector during the 1940s and 1950s. However he polarized Argetnine Societ and was ousted by the military in 1955. The military controlled the Argentine Government at different times throut the nations history. The military stepped down in 1983. Argentina recommited itself to a democratic government at this time.

Alaskan Malamute stamp from Benin Alaskan Malamute stamp from Jewish Republic of Russia

You will note that the above stamps from Benin and Jewish Republic are taken from the same image. This is a fairly common occurrance.
It may be noted that Benin, former Dahomey, has perhaps the "most beaten tracks by Europeans of any in Africa". The history of Benin is a succession of kingdoms, followed by years of communist rule and finally independence in 1990. This stamp was issued in 2000.
Jewish Republic is another local Russian state near Siberia. Stamp issued in 1998. I don't know why the different countries used the same image for their stamps, but these two, plus the one below from Buriatia are obviously the same model.

Buriatia is in southern Siberia near Lake Baykal on the Mongolian border, so you would be right to imagine that the Buryat people are Buddhists like their neighbors. The stamp on the left, which is apparently taken from the same photo as the Altai stamp above, was issued in 1999. The one on the right, which is a duplicate of the photo above from Benin was put out in 1997.

Chad is in Northern Africa between Lybia and the Republic of Central Africa. The stamp on the left was put out way back in 1977. It shows Eskimos with their dogs out on a hunt. This is never carried by suppliers of dog topicals, and I have not been able to find it from those who carry others from Chad for some reason.

Alaskan Malamute stamp from Dagestan

Dagestan put out this stamp in 1997.
Dagestan is one of the republics of the former USSR. Located between the Caspian Sea on the East and Caucasus mountains on the West, it is probably one of the most attractive places in that part of the globe. Its area is close to that of Scotland. With population of just above 2 million people, Dagestan is the homeland to over 36 different nationalities, and each one of those nationalities has its own unique language. Such combination of languages, cultures, types of landscape and customs makes it a one of a kind place in the world. These days, however, Dagestan is going through the times of heavy unrest, both political and ethnical.

Alaskan Malamute stamp from Evenkia

Evenkia is in the far northern region of central Russia. The native people were nomads who depend on hunting and reindeer for their livelihood for centuries. The Soviet government tried to bring these people under their rule but the climatic conditions are very harsh and it was difficult to exploit the natural resources, so much of the country was still undominated when the Soviet Union broke apart in 1991. This is the first set of dog stamps issued by the remote region of Evenkia, put out in 1999.

Alaskan Malamute stamp from Finland

This stamp issued in 1965 by Finland, so probably is more of a Finnish Spitz type of dog. However, it is often carried in Alaskan Malamute collections, so it is offered here.
During World War II, Finland was able to successfully defend its freedom and fend off invasions by the Soviet Union and Germany. In the subsequent half century, the Finns have made a remarkable transformation from a farm/forest economy to a diversified modern industrial economy; per capita income is now on par with Western Europe. As a member of the European Union, Finland was the only Nordic state to join the euro system at its initiation in January 1999. It is slightly smaller than Montana. The climate of Finland is cold temperate; potentially subarctic, but comparatively mild because of moderating influence of the North Atlantic Current, Baltic Sea, and more than 60,000 lakes. The official language is Finnish. The capitol is Helsinki.

Alaskan Malamute stamp from Gambia

The Gambia is a long and narrow country in West Africa that parallels and takes in both sides of the Gambia River. It is surrounded by Senegal on all sides, except on the Atlantic coast, and for this reason the two countries have a lot of ethnic and cultural ties. In contrast to Senegal, a former French colony, The Gambia was colonized by Britain and gained it's Independence on February 18, 1965. This stamp issued in 1997.

Alaskan Malamute stamp from Guyana

Guyana is a little country which lies on the North Eastern shoulder of South America near the equator. Said to be the legendary El Dorado, Guyana is the only English-speaking country located in South America. The name 'Guyana' is derived from an Amerindian word meaning; land of many waters - and indeed it is a land of many waters- with three mighty rivers and many tributaries, creeks and waterfalls.
Guyana was founded by the British in 1781. It passed for a while to the French, who largely rebuilt it, and in 1784 to the Dutch, who called the capital Stabroek. Regaining control in 1812, the British government renamed it British Guiana. In 1966 it became an independent Guyana. This Alaskan Malamute stamp was issued in 1995.

Alaskan Malamute 
 stamp from Kalmykia

A beautiful headstudy issued in 1999 by kalmykia.
Kalmykia is a republic within the Russian Federation. The Kalmyks settled the Volga River region in the seventeenth century. A Mongol people, they were originally Buddhist in faith. Annexed to Russian in 1771, a Kalmyk Autonomous Province was created by the Bolsheviks in 1920. This was abolished during the Second World War, when, in common with many other ethnic minorities, the Kalmyks were deemed to have displayed insufficient enthusiasm for fighting for Communism. The customary mass deportations followed. An Autonomous Republic was re-established in 1958.

stamp from  Karakalpakia Alaskan Malamute 
stamp from  Karakalpakia

Karakalpakia, now under the domain of Uzbekistan, is on the edge of the shrinking Aral Sea, which has recently revealed a shocking scale of environmentally-induced disease. Women and children are most severely affected from the spread of pesticides and other pollutants as the lake - once the fourth largest in the world - has turned into a desert, its waters siphoned off to irrigate vast cotton fields and rice paddies in Central Asia. Over 20 per cent of the young women, aged 13-19, have kidney disease, another 23 per cent suffer from thyroid dysfunctions. And many women have high levels of lead, zinc and strontium in their blood. Although the Aral Sea probably has less than 10 years of life left, if nothing is done to salvage what remains of it, the 1.1 million residents of Karakalpakia are under immediate health threats. If nothing is done to improve the health of the people we may be witnessing the end of another entire society as a result of human folly. The stamp on the left was issued in 1998, and although I realize that the scan looks distorted, I swear it is exactly as the stamp is. The stamp on the right is from 1999.

Alaskan Malamute stamp from Mozanbique

A rare find indeed, from Mozambique, celebrating the life of Louis Pasteur.
Mozambique is 111 years old. The country came into existence in its present form as a result of an Anglo-Portuguese treaty of May 1891 and gained its independence from Portugal in 1975. The Mozambique created in 1891 was not a piece of random map drawing but an attempt to make sense of the history of the region in a single colonial state. In doing so, it accepted a part of the African coast, which was established in the sixteenth century when the Portuguese divided their command in eastern Africa between the states of Mozambique and Mombassa.

Alaskan Malamute stamp from Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone was a British colony to which freed slaves returned in the late 1700's. After Independence in 1961 successive governments were dominated by a small political elite who exclusively profited from the lucrative trade in diamonds. Little of this national income trickled down to benefit the rest of the population. After much fighting and insurection the UN was finally convinced to send a peacekeeping force that was in the news for many months as the rebels continued

Alaskan Malamute stamp from Tadjikistan

A wonderful Alaskan Malamute stamp issued by Tadjikistan in 1999.
Tadjikistan plays a fascinating role in the power struggle in central Asia. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the declaration of independence by the former Soviet republics, Tadjikistan acquired national sovereignty for the first time in history. Inexperience, in conjunction with a particular clan-oriented, regional-based, political culture established the foundation for the prolonged conflict that ensued in post-Soviet Tadjikistan. The intensity of this conflict has been further fueled by the ethnic and historical externalities of the unresolved political situation in Afghanistan.
Today, Russia's interests in Tadjikistan center around preserving its economic and geopolitical position in Central Asia. These interests, however, conflict with those of the newly independent states in the region, which are focused on preventing Tadjikistan from becoming a "Russian protectorate." In this respect, resolution of the civil war in Tadjikistan is part of the broader problems of reconstituting global spheres of influence and establishing a "new world order" in the wake of the Soviet collapse.
In addition to the seemingly obvious military, strategic, and geopolitical factors, there are critical economic issues that underlie Russia's interests in retaining Tadjikistan within its sphere of influence. Tadjikistan is a mountainous country, rich in fuel and mineral deposits. Tadjikistan's potential to generate hydroelectric power is second only to Russia among CIS member states. Moreover, not so long ago, Tadjikistan was Moscow's main supplier of several minerals, as well as cotton. Finally, the country has the resources and infrastructure to become a major industrial power in the region.

Batum is a local Russian state just south of the Black Sea, near Turkey. It is a Black Sea oil port at the end of an oil line. In 1878 its turbulent modern history began when it was taken by Russia from Turkey. Following the fall of the Tsar, the caucasion peoples reasserted their independence and Turkey saw its chance to win back old territory. Its troops entered Batum in april 1918. From this time date letters handstamped Batumskaya Kontora during a shortage of stamps at the Post Office and thus begins Batums philatelic history.

Alaskan Malamute stamp from Grenada

Alaskan Malamute stamp from Grenada Grenada is described as a spice island, for it produces large quantities of cloves and mace and about a third of the world’s nutmeg. It also grows cacao, sugar, bananas and a wide variety of other fruit and vegetables. Some of its beaches, specially Grand Anse, a dazzling two-mile stretch of white sand, are very fine, but the rest of the island is just as beautiful, rising from a generally rugged coast to a spectacular mountainous interior. The island is green, well forested and cultivated and is blessed with plenty of rain in the wet season. Grenada is the most southerly of the Windward Islands. In contrast to other Windward Islands which have had a similar history of disputed ownership between the French and English, the French cultural influence in Grenada has completely died out. The population is very young; 38% are under 15 years old and nearly 26% are in the 15-29 years’ age bracket. It has two dependencies in the Grenadines chain, Carriacou and Petit (often spelt Petite) Martinique.

Tanzania, the largest country in East Africa, is renowned for its magnificent wildlife, lakes, mountains, and scenery. The country boasts a wealth of natural attractions, including the famed Ngorongoro crater and the formidable Mount Kilimanjaro. It is also home to magnificent game reserves: Gombe Stream National Park, with its chimpanzee sanctuary; and the breathtaking plains of the Serengeti National Park, which hosts the annual migration of at least two million wildebeest with leopards and lions hot on their heels. Add to this the lovely beaches of the exotic islands of Zanzibar, Pemba, and Mafia. Tanzania issued a couple of different sets of dog stamps, including this beguiling stamp in 1994.

Alaskan Malamute stamp from Turkmenistan

Alaskan Malamute stamp from Turkmenistan Annexed by Russia between 1865 and 1885, Turkmenistan became a Soviet republic in 1925. It achieved its independence upon the dissolution of the USSR in 1991. President NIYAZOV retains absolute control over the country and opposition is not tolerated. Extensive Hudrocarbon/natural gas reserves could prove a boon to this underdeveloped country if extraction and delivery projects were to be expanded. Turkmenistan is on the east side of the Caspian Sea, just above Iran. It is slightly larger than California in size. Its terrain is flat-to-rolling sandy desert with dunes rising to mountains in the south; low mountains along border with Iran; borders Caspian Sea in west. The religion is Muslim 89%, Eastern Orthodox 9%, unknown 2%. The capital is Ashgabsat.
This is probably one of the most amazing mini sheets ever produced. There are eighteen breeds represented and they have managed to run a perforation line through every one. My, what an accomplishment. The Alaskan Malamute is shown enlarged to the right.

Alaskan Malamute Envelopes


Alaskan Malamute Envelope from USA

This hand-painted cachet envelope is from the American First Day Cover Society “Court of Honor series.
Eight popular breeds were selected by the U.S. Postal Service for its Block of Four Dog Stamps issue of September 7, 1984, its release timed to coincide with the American Kennel Club's 100th anniversary convention. The AKC, largest organization of its type in the world, is the official registrar of purebred dogs in the U. S., sanctions shows and sets breeding standards.
When you compare a huge, shaggy Newfoundland dog to a tiny Chihuahua, or an apartment-dwelling well-groomed poodle with her pink "hair bow" to a sleek racing Greyhound, it seems difficult to realize that all dogs are members of a single species, along with wolves, jackals and coyotes. The distinguishing feature which separates dogs from their wild cousins is the upturned tail. Dogs are the oldest domesticated animal. Archeological evidence has been found which links dogs to human culture as far back as several millennia B.C.
Today, dogs are part of millions of American households. Most are affectionate pets; some serve as guard dogs or Seeing Eye dogs, and some have performed remarkable feats of heroism in protecting their masters. They have well earned the title of "man's best friend."

In 1979, Freda Dickie Weaver introduced her hand-painted cachets with the Sc. 1787 “Seeing For Me” stamp issue. Collectors were mesmerized with the beauty and the life-like appearance of her cachets. They immediately became much sought after covers which commanded a premium price. This attracted many skilled artists to the first-day cover field. Through Freda Weaver’s efforts, hand-painted covers have become a major collecting interest. Freda’s covers are extremely complex and detailed. They are hand-painted in life-like colors that accurately portray the subject at its time of use. The demand for her work far exceeds her capacity to produce. Her attention to detail makes the covers living bits of time. She is, without question, the leading cachet artist of our time.

OLD DRUM
Black and Tan Coonhound
Died 1870 - Warrensburg, Missouri

"Old Drum" is the focal point on this magnificent envelope. He stands alone on the left. The eight chosen stamps are shown to the right.
Old Drum, a hound dog, was shot dead in 1870 by Samuel "Dick" Ferguson, nephew and ward of Leonidas Hornsby, an irate neighbor who thought Drum had been killing his sheep.
Drum's owner, Charles burden, sued Hornsby (who also happened to be his brother-in-law), and the case eventually went to the Missouri Supreme Court where Burden won the case. But it was in the courtroom in Warrensburg that Burden's lawyer, future Senator George Graham Vest, delivered his famous tribute: "the one absolutely unselfish friend that a man can have in this selfish world....is his dog."
A statue of Old Drum was erected, and still stands, on the current Johnson county Courthouse lawn (the old courthouse where Vest delivered his famous speech still stands elsewhere in town). Burden was awarded fifty dollars.
Dick Ferguson, the reported shooter of Old Drum, later moved to Oklahoma, where he himself died of gunshot wounds in the town of Anadarko.

ALASKAN MALAMUTE
See above envelope description for information on the artist, Freda Dickie Weaver.
Two large working dog breeds, an Alaskan Malamute and a Collie stamp is affixed to the upper right Alaskan Malamute Envelope Silk Cachet from USA of the envelope. This a first day of issue, September 7, 1984, to coincide with the American Kennel Club's 100th anniversary convention. The AKC, largest organization of its type in the world, is the official registrar of purebred dogs in the U. S., sanctions shows and sets breeding standards.
The Alaskan Malamute got its name from a tribe of Eskimos living in western alaska, and along with the Samoyed, Eskimo dog and Siberian Husky, comprise the group of working canines known as "sled dogs." An adult male Malamute may weigh from 75 to 85 pounds and is capable of prodigious feats of strength and endurance. Teams of these dogs have hauled heavily-laden sleds over long distances of Arctic and Antarctic frozen wastelands at extremely low temperatures and sometimes in driving snow. Yet, for all their fierceness in struggling against the elements, they are gentle animals. These masters of the polar regions have now been largely replaced by snowmobiles and snowcats (larger vehicles that traverse the snow on tractor-treads), but these dogs still have their day in the many sled-dog races that enliven the winter season in the northern United states and Canada.

Alaskan Malamute stamp from Nevis

Alaskan Malamute Envelope from Nevis A 'First Day Issue' envelope, May. 1, 2000 from Nevis. An awesome piece for your collection. ONE ONLY. Don't miss out on this rare find.
St. Kitts & Nevis are located in the northern part of the Leeward Islands in the eastern Caribbean. Like no other islands in the Caribbean, they seem to embody a kind of lush tropical paradise usually associated with the South Pacific. The atmosphere here is luxuriant, an intoxicating blend of sunlight, sea air and fantastically abundant vegetation. On Nevis, the ground rises upward into a cloud forest filled with elusive green vervet monkeys and brilliant tropical flowers. Nevis was named after the spanish word for snow, not because there was any, but because of the white clouds that encircle the single peak of an island.

* We can take visa/mc/disc or paypal, but they are first come first served, so let me know if you are interested.

* Truly one of the cheapest unique treats for yourself or a friend (great for club trophies as well!)

* It is absolutely true that you will often find some of these stamps at very reasonable prices -- some can be had for under a dollar. On the other hand, if you add in the gas, hours, and hassles that it has taken to find them, you may find it easier to just get them from us while we have them :*) I don't always count on getting more in the near future. I get them when I can find them and the stock is not always constant.
