Dubai Cancels
1965 - 1972

Small Single Ring Cancels

These cancels were used in Dubai and in Deira from mid-1965 to 1972, and from an unknown date from the International Airport. These cancels were used also for a time when Dubai joined the UAE. My thanks to R. Howard Courtney for the photocopies of these cancels and for the earliest known used dates for the first three Dubai cancels. My thanks to Khalid al-Omaira for the first Deira and for the International Airport cancels and the earliest known used dates of the three Deira cancels and the International Airport cancel.
