Transjordan Collection Page Scans

The Transjordan set of stamps showing Emir Abdullah were printed in several formats and with various overprints and perforations from 1927 until about 1952. During the course of this issue, there were numerous perforation and design changes. It was also overprinted for two likely philatelic purposes, and for a currency change that resulted in multiple colored overprints - some of which are very difficult to find.

In addition to the Abdullah series, there were several commemorative issues and a complete set of obligatory tax issues to raise money for the resettlement of the Palestinians after the state of Israel was proclaimed. A currency change resulted in some overprints and finally the tax stamps were overprinted POSTAGE and were available for use. So this tends to quickly become a pretty complex state for study. Please note that I am still looking for several issues, so if you have them please contact me about a sale or trade.

The pages are from my collection, and are identified by the Commonwealth, Gibbons, and Scott numbers in that order. The page images were scanned in a larger size and at a higher resolution so you can more easily see the details used in viewing them. Feel free to select the page and let it download to your screen and save it to your hard drive for viewing. If you are using a PC, selecting the page will typically open it in Microsoft Photo Viewer (or whatever you are using as your default). From there you can enlarge the size for more close-up viewing. If you are using a phone - go find a PC or a Mac. The images are 1200 pixels wide and you will go mad trying to view them on your phone.

Please be patient if it takes a few minutes for each page to load.
