Dubai Cancels
1965 - 1972

Large Single Ring Cancels

These cancels were used in Dubai from 1965 to 1972. I have seen later examples of these cancels used on United Arab Emirates covers postmarked in Dubai. My thanks to Khalid al-Omaira for the image of the Deira cancel and to R. Howard Courtney for the photocopies of the Dubai cancels and for the earliest known use dates.
