And they just keep on coming....

          Here's a re-updated list (7Sep96)...

Hologram Stamps Issued

Reproductions of stamps in non-postally-valid holographic form (i.e. types of
China pasted to post office produced greetings folders) or post cards issued by
governments where the hologram is not part of the postage indicia on the
address side, are not listed (i.e. Hungary, 1995).  Souvenir sheets with
holograms outside the perforated areas of the stamps in them are listed and are
noted (even though the actual postage part of the sheet has no hologram on it).
