|Story Behind the Cancellation:||Although registered covers bore registration labels they were all cancelled with the standard cancellers until the introduction of the Large Oval Abu Dhabi canceller in April 1968.|
On the 1st of April 1968, a registration date-stamp was introduced for the Abu Dhabi Post Office. It was a multi-lingual canceller with the inscription of “ABU DHABI” in Arabic, the date in English and the inscription “ABU DHABI RECOMMANDE” in French.
