Dubai Anti-Malaria

1963 Complete Mint Set of 9


Dubai is one of the richest and fastest-growing city-states in the world, with a population of over 2 million and known today for its innovative skyscrapers, man-made islands, and the world's largest shopping mall. The Dubai of 1963 was much different. With a population of 40,000, it was an independent Sheikdom under British protection, and oil was not discovered there until 1966. One of its earliest postal issues was a set of 9 stamps calling attention to the World Health Organization drive to eradicate malaria. Printed locally in Dubai, this mint never-hinged set is increasingly difficult to find today. (Dubai #22-27, C13-15)
