Location:Abu Dhabi
Description:The Large “Section” Single-Circle Abu Dhabi Registration Canceller
Dimensions:4 cm
Story Behind the Cancellation:From around mid-1970 the Abu Dhabi Post Office started using a new registration date-stamp. It was a single-circle hand-stamp that saw the previously used “RECOMMANDÉ” replaced by “REGISTERED”. It was also different in the way that it included the word “SECTION” in the hand-stamp.

It is known with Sections: A, B and E. Section C has been reported but without dates.

The canceller was struck in several different colours. The earlier samples of the canceller were struck in a pinkish red colour with later impression found in blue, purple and violet.

It has also been reported with Sections “A”, “B”, “C”, “D”, “E”, “F” and “G”.
