It has been brought to our attention that members need to be aware of the recent appearance of Herm stamps with unlisted/unofficial overprints on a well-known on-line auction site. Please be aware that these are unofficial overprints and do not appear in any of the official Herm stamp catalogues. It is not the intention of the C.I.S.S. to stop any of its members from purchasing any of these items if they so wish. Bear in mind that these overprints are printed off a computer. They are not genuine stamps, in the true sense, with an unofficial overprint. It also appears that other Channel Islands philatelic material of dubious origins periodically appears on the same on-line auction site; so, buyer beware. If in doubt, please seek advice by emailing
