This Bruce Lee miniature sheet was issued by Abkhazia for the China ’96 9th Asian International Philatelic Exhibition. China ’96 took place in Beijing from 18 May to 24 May 1996 and celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Modern Chinese Postal Service.
The four stamps all feature an iconic image of Bruce Lee in a white vest as he appeared in the 1972 martial arts classic movie Way Of The Dragon (the film in which he fights Chuck Norris at the Colosseum in Rome).
Whilst Abkhazia has been issuing stamps for collectors for many years, at present Russia, Georgia and the UPU say that Abkhazian stamps are illegitimate and they cannot be used outside Abkhazian borders. Certainly the country has fallen victim to several fake stamp issues, most notably the 1999 stamps featuring a caricature of President Clinton and Monica Lewinsky!
