Abu Dhabi Stamps and Postal History

STAMP DETAILS

[SUPERSIZE IMAGE]
Stamp SetA full sheet of the 20 Fils on 20 Naye Paise overprint was found with the surcharge inverted. The inverted surcharge lies slightly to the right of the sheet so that the 20 impressed on the stamp actually is part of the “20 Fils” of the neighbouring stamp. According to Neil Donaldson the error is best seen on horizontal pairs of the stamp. The original finder kept 14 copies of the stamp and four copies were postally used.
