Since the advent of the Universal Postal Union, the stamps issued by a sovereign state, or breakaway rebel group or whatever need to be recognized by the U.P.U. in order to have international postal validity. There are numerous examples of local stamps - India native states, many in Eastern Europe, German, Swedish and other City Posts, University Posts, Maritime Mail and on and on. Many of these are for a specialized service or were only used for local postal service.

In 1895 Brunei issued a set of 10 stamps which saw valid postal use. They were used locally and, with the addition of Labuan postage stamps, also internationally. When used on cover they command substantial prices.
