List of entities that have issued postage stamps (F - L)

;See also : List of entities that have issued postage stamps (A - E): List of entities that have issued postage stamps (M - Z)

Introduction

This is a list of entities that have issued postage stamps at some point since stamps were introduced in 1840. The list includes any kind of governmental entity or officially approved organisation that has issued distinctive types of stamp "for postal purposes". These include post offices in foreign countries and postal services organised by military occupations, international organisations, colonies, provinces, city-states and some revolutionary movements. The list includes members of the Universal Postal Union that are also listed at postal organisations.

Many of these entities are historic and some were very short-lived indeed. Philatelists and stamp collectors often refer to the entities that no longer issue stamps as dead countries.

The dates are the generally-agreed-upon dates of first and last stamp issues. "Date of issue" is taken to mean the date when a particular type or variation was "first" issued but its usage would often continue for many years. For example, although an entity may have issued its last stamp in 1951, actual usage may have continued till 1960: in that case, 1951 is the last stamp issue date.

The list has a short to medium term purpose for in that it identifies the country surveys which the project aims to introduce. Therefore, although it presently (i.e., in July 2006) contains numerous redlinks, there is method here in that members can readily see the country survey articles that are needed. It is recommended that articles should be started as in the short term using information that is readily available.

List

The list has been comprehensively revised to include extra entities and to direct the links away from the country articles to the (proposed) philatelic articles.
