Abu Dhabi Stamps and Postal History

Location:Das Island
Direction of Mail:Outgoing Mail
Cover Type:Local Mail
Comments:This is a cover representing a very rare route sent from Abu Dhabi Marine Areas Ltd on Das Island to Arabian American Oil Company (ARAMCO) in Dhahran. The cover is sent under the care of Yousuf Bin Ahmed Kanoo in Bahrain. The cover is sent with the local rate of 10 Naye Paise and though the cover has its origin on Das Island (the Das Island Post Office was still in Bahrain) it was cancelled with a Bahrain Canceller, which is highly unusual. The local rate on the cover is explained by the care of Yousuf Bin Ahmed Kanoo.
Cancellation Date:28-Oct-1964
Recipient Country:Saudi Arabia
Recipient Name:ARAMCO
Sender Name:Abu Dhabi Marine Areas Ltd
