First Issues - 1840 to 1849

page 1.1b

1966 Centenary Exhibition, Cairo

As noted on the parent page,

Guidelines were gradually developed as these pages were written, including preferences for substitution, stating "An arbitrary standard I favour is that I would prefer the commemorating entity to be (or be related to) the original issuer". An exception will now be made for a set from Umm al-Quwain issued at the 1966 Cairo Stamp Centenary Exhibition. My 2009 Scott does not list the set, but my 2004 Gibbons Simplified lists them as SG49-SG58, ignoring the m/s.

There are ten stamps (each showing a #1 and sometimes Egypt's #1) plus a m/s with the Egypt #1.

There's another set from Ajman that's in the post.
