The late nineteen nineties were chaotic times in the Congo. Rebels / warlords took control over parts of the country, and seized significant quantities of valid stamps. To prevent these from being sold or used, the central government had their stock of stamps overprinted, and declared stamps without overprint invalid. Different overprints exist, there are also stamps overprinted 'LEGAL'.
