Antarctic Cinderellas are certainly numerous and attractive, especially the best of the lot. They all seem to carry stories behind them.

I have had these "stamps" for a few years, I can't remember where I got them from (probably eBay), but they seem to have been issued in 1996, definitely not by Guyana so I guess they are Greenpeace propaganda.

I am inclined to regard those Guyana Greenpeace stamps as genuine.  They are very high-quality, professional productions, and Greenpeace certainly had no motivation to expend such a large sum to produce an issue of stamps for some other country. 

Greenpeace never did such things before.  The only time they did do stamps was those issues shown earlier in this thread, printed for them by New Zealand stamp dealers, who in return got a proportion of the stamps to retain and sell off. As an environmental group, their funds were aimed at their campaigns, and I doubt that expenditure on such a thing as "pseudo-Guyana stamps" would have ever made the cut.

And Guyana has always been an "extremely stampiferous" country!  I see that issue is not listed by Gibbons, which possibly reflects their management's disapproval of the politics involved here.

Here is a set of Greenpeace anniversary stamps done by Romania, which does have full SG listing:

Romania 1997 26th anniversary of Greenpeace. SG 5861 - 5864.

That site seems to not be working.  Can you summarise what it said?  And "who" was saying it?
