TB Seals Order Form


This page features Ryukyu Islands Tuberculosis Prevention Seals. While these sheets were produced and distributed privately by the Ryukyu Tuberculosis Prevention Association, they are considered by many a collateral collecting interest to the philatelic material of the Ryukyu Islands. They have been catalogued by Mr. Kenkichi Tachikawa in his Handbook of Ryukyu Postage Stamps (1973) and they are extensively discussed and catalogued in From the Dragons Den, the official publication of the Ryukyu Philatelic Specialist Society, LTD. The RPSS catalogue listings are found at Volume 11, Number 4 and Volume 12, Number 1.

Ryukyu Island TB Prevention Seals are now (2008 catalogue) listed in the Specialized Catalogue of United States Stamps & Covers and designated WX1-20.

All TB seal sheets are Mint, Never Hinged - free of faults - unless noted otherwise in the description.
