Our member ESC 584 from Abu Dhabi is researching Fuad postal history, and seeks members’ help in completing that research.
Because he does not have enough material bearing the green 4-millième value of the Fuad Second Issue (1927-37) to provide a statistical breakdown, he asks all members to examine their collection’s covers, cards or parcel cards – any postal material at all – bearing the stamp, whether as a single franking or mixed with other values or issues, and to provide information on the following:
1. How many postal items do you have bearing the stamp?
2. How many of them are the Type I (horizontal-vertical) screen?
3. How many of them are Type II (diagonal) screen?
Ahmed says that he is willing to purchase postal material bearing the 4-millièmes Type I or unsorted bulk covers bearing the stamp examine them himself.
Further, he has examined several hundred examples of the First Fuad issue (1923-24), including requests to non-ESC members, and would very much appreciate knowledge of the earliest and latest postmark dates members have on these stamps, and the values showing those marginal dates. If on cover, a description would be greatly valued.
Any input, he says, would be highly appreciated. Ahmed can be contacted by e-mail at ahmad_ccna @hotmail.com
