Middle East Stamps | STAMPS OF the Middle East

The Stamps and Postal History of the Middle East

Whether you enjoy old stamps such as Egypt’s 1860s Sphinx and Pyramid designs, or the ultra- modern Saudi Arabian holographic pictorials the countries considered to be in the ‘Middle East’ offer the stamp collector and postal historian a wide choice. The British Postal Agencies & the stamps of British India used from Aden to Iran, the Yemen civil war overprints and the fascinating overprinted issues of early Jordan. The emotive Palestinian Authority stamps speak of struggle whilst the colourful pictorials of the Gulf States speak of wealth, the Israel 1948 Coin stamps printed under the noses of the British and the Syrian pictorials depicting some of the world’s greatest ancient architecture.
