Afghanistan Post
Afghanistan Post is currently trying to revamp the postal service in the country, with the help of Pakistan Post. Maybe one day, with a working postal service, they will start again to produce postage stamps regularly. Remember that last official stamp was issued on 1989. Then the darkness. Now it seems (have a look at the site) that new stamps were released on 2003.

Azerbaijan (updated 17 Sep 2009)
"Azermarka" is the state company that produces and sells postage stamps. Azermarka is not to be confused with the Azeri Post Office which has its own URL and e-mail address (see below). Anyway people interested to buy stamps should contact Azermarka. You can get their latest stock list by e-mail. They don't sell stamps at face value. All the prices are in Euro and are almost equivalent to a stamps dealer's prices. The stamps from as early as 1992 are still available for sale.

A territory officially part of Azerbaijan but in fact fully indipendent and backed by Armenia. I don't want to talk about politcs here: just consider that the only way to officially send a letter from here is using the stamps of Artsakhpost. Letters take their way through the armenian postal system. see:
Now online the official website. With all the images of stamps issued 1993 to date.
