New issues.

🇳🇷 Nauru Post -

26 October 2022 - ANGAM Day, Centenary of the Birth of Sir Hammer de Robert, first President of Nauru - 1 stamp. Rating:- ****.

An illustration of the stamp itself is not yet available however the photographs taken at a ceremony where the Secretary for Nauru Post presented a first day cover and possibly a presentation pack to another politician which were posted on Nauru Post Facebook page clearly show that the issue was made up of one stamp featuring a photographic portrait of Sir Hammer de Roburt. The post stated the date of issue as 26 October 2022.

🇰🇮 Kiribati postal service - 

28 October 2022 - The COVID-19 pandemic - 4 stamps. Rating:- *****.

This issue is offered for sale of the internet auction site of Spectre of Stamps (a dealer in Norway).

Paraphilatelic products.

The Estonia-based company Stampsdaq has reached an agreement with Botswana Post to produce NFTS of previous Botswana stamps. A post from the Universal Postal Union states that, “The partnership aims to help develop common philately dedicated NFT ecosystem” (whatever that means).

A fool and his money are easily parted, as the old saying goes.


  1. Date of issue for the Kiribati Covid-19 issue is October 28, 2022. By the way, Kiribati will release a wonderful s/s with title HM Queen Elizabeth II in memoriam at November 14, 2022
