THE I n t e r p o s t a l  S e a l s OF EGYPT:1864-1892

TYPE IV Interpostals January 1868

Kehr, in his catalog, describes the Type IV seals as follow:

    Inscribed “POSTE YICE REALI EGIZIANE” in white letters on a background of cross-hatching around the top arch; and town name in coloured letters around bottom of the same arch-panel. The whole enclosed by a circular frame of thick, thin and thick lines and finally, around outside, a double-thick line measuring 39 mm in diameter. The Arabic inscription, "Busta Masrieh Mirieh" - which means Official Egyptian Mail - is arranged in three lines in the centre in coloured lettering on a background of fine vertical lines. Printed in black on tinted paper, except as noted

  • The letter, 0, in POSTE, is rectangular and the letter, G, in EGIZIANE, is clear and distinct.

O. May (1915 Catalog of Interpostal Seals) elaborates more:

    “ Letter 0 is nearly rectangular, and G is made clearly, as follows : " G " ; also inscription is in rather thin letters, with good spaces between words : e.g., 2 mm. between " VICE " and " REALI " at tops of letters. “
