Beatles stamps
On 9 January 2007, the British Post Office issued a set of stamps commemorating The Beatles.

Warning; There are many items being offered on the market as "stamps" showing The Beatles *, but which are not in fact real stamps. To the best of our knowledge, all such productions from Abhkazia, Buriata, Karelia, Chuviashia, and the like are what are described in the philatelic world as "illegals". Illegals are labels (not stamps), which are produced by people who have no authority from the country named on the labels, and who normally ignore such niceties as copyright and intellectual property. They normally pick on countries (or areas/provinces, etc.) which do not have the financial ability to take international legal action.
If you know exactly what they are and still decide to buy them, then that is your choice. But don't expect anybody in the future to recognise them as postage stamps. And don't expect to be able to sell them for anything more than a laughable sum.
[* The same applies to many issues of film stars, pop and rock bands, golfers, and so on.]
