Abu Dhabi Stamps and Postal History

Location:Abu Dhabi
Cover Type:First Day Cover
Comments:This is an interesting cover franked with the 5 Fils Progress stamp on the first day of issue but unusual as it has been cancelled with the “Remittance” canceller rather than a normal canceller. The Remittance canceller was introduced along with the Remittance Branch at the Abu Dhabi Post Office with the purpose of rendering services like sending draft money through the mail.
Cancellation Date:17-Dec-1968
Recipient Country:Unaddressed
