Gauguin painting stamps drew thousands of collectors to French Polynesia stamps and continuing designs and themes of the postal administration has kept collectors entranced for decades. New issues are often printed in Paris but local French Polynesia stamps also appear from time to time and are often prized stamps because they have to be bought at island post offices rather than at overseas stamp agencies.
French Polynesia stamp designs are diverse and Polynesia thematic stamp issues often concentrate on ships, paintings, birds and even a golf stamp. Is there a golf course in French Polynesia at all is a question we ask.
There have been controversial stamp issues with wrong designs and even a famous French legal case where a woman was depicted on a French Polynesian stamp and thus her privacy was compromised in violation of French law. That stamp was withdrawn from circulation! The woman was not.
Free French overprints and early colonial issues of French Polynesia are popular with stamp collectors. Some early issues that were stored in the Tropics have gum problems more often than not and stamp collectors might need to relax their standards a bit for these issues if they want to fill in nice looking stamps in their albums. Gum problems and even wax paper adhesion are a sign of genuine early issues in some cases.
French Polynesia stamp prices are strong. There is worldwide demand for these exotic island stamp issues. So many people dream of living on a tropical isle like Tahiti but never get close. Better to dream through philately than visit these islands and have dreams broken by the reality of living in an exotic looking, but rough and tumble Pacific island.
