Afghanistan is a mountainous land-locked country located in Central Asia.
It has a history and culture that goes back over 5000 years. Throughout
its long, splendid, and sometimes chaotic history, this area of the world has
been known by various names. In ancient times, its inhabitants called
the land Aryana. In the medieval era, it was called Khorasan, and in
modern times, its people have decided to call it Afghanistan. The

to be somewhere around 21-26 million. It is slightly smaller than Texas.
They have cold winters and hot summers. Some current issues are limited

* We can take visa/mc/disc or paypal, but they are first come first served,
so let me know if you are interested.
Truly one of the cheapest unique treats for yourself or a friend (great for
club trophies as well!)
* It is absolutely true that you will often find some of these stamps at very
reasonable prices -- some can be had for under a dollar. On the other hand, if
you add in the gas, hours, and hassles that it has taken to find them, you may
find it easier to just get them from us while we have them :*) I don't always
count on getting more in the near future. I get them when I can find them and
the stock is not always constant.
