Story Behind the Cancellation:With the opening of the Abu Dhabi Post Office a total of four cancellers were introduced – two for Abu Dhabi and two for Das Island. They were all impressed in black colour.

Abu Dhabi 1 and Abu Dhabi 2 differ from each other by the lack of space between “Dhabi.” and “Trucial” in the Abu Dhabi 1 canceller. The letters of Abu Dhabi 2 are also vertically longer.

The canceller remained in use until the formation of the United Arab Emirates.
