Abu Dhabi Stamps and Postal History

Location:Abu Dhabi
Cover Type:Airmail
Comments:An interesting cover from two perspectives: First of all the cover carries a tampered registration label. Is it possible that the GPO of Abu Dhabi ran out of its normal registration labels and then starting using “Abu Dhabi 3” labels but only after obliterating the number “3”? This cover is an example of such a registration label. However, the registration label has been tampered with in order to reveal the figure “3”. The second interesting feature is the use of the canceller to seal the cover of the back.
