Dubai Cancels
1965 - 1972

Small Double Ring Cancels

These cancels were used from 1967 to 1972 in Dubai and Deira. I have also seen this cancel used from the Dubai International Airport (Dubai 4). These cancels were also used as backstamps to at least 1974. My thanks to R. Howard Courtney for the photocopies and the earliest known used dates of the first two cancels. My thanks to Khalid al-Omaira for the earliest known used date of the Deira cancel.
