Dubai 1963 - 1965
Hexagonal Cancels

The hexagonal cancels were used in Dubai and in Deira from 1963 to 1964. I have seen examples of these cancels used in 1965. My thanks to R. Howard Courtney for supplying the photocopies of these images and the earliest known used dates and to Khalid al-Omaira for the image of the error.
