Abu Dhabi Stamps and Postal History

Location:Abu Dhabi
Direction of Mail:Outgoing Mail
Cover Type:Airmail
Comments:Although only 11 of the “Value-Only” stamps were issued for Abu Dhabi, stamps of other denominations were seen used. They were perhaps considered valid for usage so long the two post offices of Abu Dhabi and Das Island remained under British administration. It could also be that because of the similar design the usage of the stamps had been overlooked by the handling clerk (though less likely). This cover shows the usage of 4 additional values: 1 NP, 3 NP, 6 NP and 12 NP. The cover has the appearance of a philatelic item but shows this rare usage of non-issued stamps in Abu Dhabi.
