One of most challenging stamps to collect for those who are into serious Philippine era collecting is the Japanese Occupation of the Philippines. Although some are still sold in Ebay stores, there are some that are very hard to find nowadays.
The invasion of the Philippines by the Japanese Imperial Forces in World War II is among the darkest chapters of Philippine history. Many American and Filipinos died defending the country from the Japanese.
As I open the pages of my Japanese Occupation stamps, I am reminded of their sacrifices and how they fought the invaders to free our land.
Cebu Stamp Club's "Philippine Stamps" Volume #1, Number #2 e-Magazine features the complete images and info of the Japanese Occupation stamps.
