Abu Dhabi Stamps and Postal History

COVER DETAILS
[SUPERSIZE IMAGE] 
Location:Abu Dhabi
Cover Type:First Day Cover
Comments:This FDC is special as it shows the “clubbed left end of the second bar down” on all 4 high value stamps. This variety appears only once in a sheet making the FDC extremely rare – possibly unique. First Day Covers with the provisional issue of 1966 must be taken with care. It is already established that during the issuance of the first provisional set of stamps for Abu Dhabi no FDCs were issued by the Post Office. The only examples, of which there are very few genuine, were the ones which were arranged to be cancelled by the usual contemporary date-stamp at the Abu Dhabi Post Office and on the request of a few philatelist. There was no FDC issued from the Das Island Post Office (still located in Bahrain). The cancellation mark listed on this website as “Forgery - Type 1” is often seen on “FDCs” with the provisional issue. The envelope is a "The Eastern Bank, Limited - Abu Dhabi" stationary.
Cancellation Date:01-Oct-1966
Recipient Country:Unaddressed
