    Hello Phaik hooi, Tuva was a region in central Asia between Russia and Mongolia, which in 1921, under Russian instigation, became the Tuvan People's Republic. A treaty between the Soviet Union and the Mongolian People's Republic in 1926 affirmed the country’s independence, although no other countries formally recognized it. In 1944, it was annexed to the Soviet Union as part of the Tuvan Autonomous Oblast and in 1961 became the Tuva Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic. Its successor since 1992, the Tuvan Republic, is a member of the Russian Federation.

    From 1934 to 1936, Tuva issued about 100 different postage stamps with exotic images of Tuvan life, including horse racing, nomadic battle scenes, and domestic animals including camels and oxen. These large format stamps came in a variety of shapes including diamonds, and were widely sold to collectors in canceled-to-order form.
    According to one source, these stamps were the brainchild of Bela Sekula, a promoter of philatelic "rarities", who in 1934 convinced the Tuvan and Soviet authorities to manufacture exotic stamps to sell to collectors. They were in fact "designed in Moscow, printed in Moscow, franked in Moscow and sold abroad by a Moscow state trading firm to earn hard currency for Moscow."

    Regards, James.

    stamp dealer and forger :hilarious::hilarious:
    "Since the 1990s, numerous labels purporting to be postage stamps of Tuva have appeared on the market. They have depicted a variety of unlikely Tuvan subjects, such as Bart Simpson, the Teletubbies and Led Zeppelin, and are all illegal stamps apparently intended to deceive collectors." :hilarious::hilarious:

    thanx for the google keywords :happy:

    Hello all , It has been a very wet day here 290mm [11"] of rain fell between 03:00 a 08:00. we did'nt take the children to school because it always floods in half that amount of rain. We have had a whole day of babysitting. The rain continued until about 15:00 our 19 litre [5 us gallon] paint bucket overflowed ages before then and two of our trees fell over, we'll prop them back up tomorrow.

    Good night all, James.

    We managed to re-stand and prop two of our Papaiya trees this morning, one has about 30kg [66 lbs] of fruit almost ready to harvest, two, with about 15kg of fruit not yet ripe, we tied this to a nearby deep rooted tree and re-covered the rootball with mud.
    Surprisingly all ten of our banana plants survived the storm, they should produce about 50kg of 'fruit' each.

    Hopefully no more rain coming our way.

    Regards, James.
