A number of stamps with the names of client territories of the Lithuania-based philatelic agency, Stamperija, printed on them are currently being offered for sale on an internet auction site and they take the form of being the sort of items which might actually be on sale in post offices in the countries whose names appear on them for use on ordinary mail. Products with the names of St. Tome', Sierra Leone and Maldives (which is currently applying to rejoin The Commonwealth) are being offered but there is no definite evidence to confirm that these stamps, despite their appearance, actually are on sale in the respective countries for true postal use.
