Cover - UAE

Emirates Post released this set of stamps commemorating the 22nd Al Gaffal 60 ft Traditional Dhow Sailing Race, in denominations of Dh1 and Dh5, along with a Souvenir Sheet of Dh15 and First Day Cover of Dh7. The stamps were issued on 27th May 2012.

A dhow is a sailing boat. What I like about this issue is the peculiar shape of the stamps but it seems to be apt. The shape is resemblant of a sail and very unique. Perfect fit to my collection of odd shaped stamps on cover.

    1. Yes Eva, the shape is fitting. I would love to have one more set of these stamps mint or used for my collection.
