Thank you for sharing your knowledge on these issues, you have certainly given me an insight into the real stamps of the 'BLACK FLAG REPUBLIC'

The Stamps below are not the famous "Black Flag" issue proclaiming the
republic of Formosa, but the first Chinese Imperial stamps for the Island
of Formosa.So they are of Chinese origin and not the short lived"Republic of Formosa".

Thank you so much perf12, at some point I was suspect is Formosa stamp was it's Cinderella, yesterday night I was searching in Scott and Taiwan local catalog, but I cant find any things at all, and finally I found it in Orbis Stamp Atlas are mentioned about it. I am curious about is Black Flag Republic mentioned in Stanley Gibbon or Yvert catalog?

By the way, above link is a great search.
