Any information about this stamp would be helpful. I can't find it in the
Scott catalog, and very little on the Internet.

re: Morocco stamp with Star of David ?

If you are wondering why there is a star of David on the stam, the old Moroccan flag featured a star of David and Morocco pre-WWII had a large jewish population. As the divide between muslims and jews heated up in the latter half of the 20th century, the star on the Moroccan flag lost a point.

It says "servicio" and "Marruecos" so my guess is that it is some kind of official stamp from Spanish Morocco.

Hi,

This is a stamp from one of the Moroccan local postal services from around 1895.

I believe this one is from the Tangier-Asilah service and is one from a set of eight values with the same design.

That was a good call. Here is something I found on the internet using "Tangier-Asilah":

Also a regular Spanish Moroccan stamp showing the six pointed star.

re: Morocco stamp with Star of David ?

Thanks for your inputs. Its appreciated.

Jansimon, I also saw that set of five on the internet. It was very interesting to learn
about the Jews In Morocco and how they came to be there and in a large number.

One of the best things about stamp collecting is it's a catalyst for learning.
