BLACKOUT PHANTOM ISSUE

by Dominique (Johns)
aka Bugmaster General

Perforated, ungummed
Bugpost 8 issue: 3.2 x 2.8cm.

This "issue" is thought to be a fraud perpetrated by
Max Normal Design who supposed the existance of an alliance formed between the
Nowherians and the fictional "Illumin Nation" who subsist entirely on electricity derived from microwaves(?)!
The stamps were supposedly created during a "Blackout" when no "current" stamp stocks
could be located (not that any existed!) in the dark.
They were then overprinted for each "day" of the disaster with the
original stamps purporting to have been issued on the second day.
