I have searched on line and am unable to find anything. The POSTES A PERCEVOIR leads me to French or French Colony postage dues. But the vertical Arabic inscriptions on the sides are a mystery. Please help!Image Not Found

Aha! So this is a local postage due for underpaid mail going between Fez and Meknes.

No. French parcel post stamps are inscribed "Colis Postal". "Chiffre Taxe" is postage due.

Hello foudutimbre,

Very nice pages indeed! Thanks for sharing the links.Happy

I was very lucky last year to see Maurice Hadida's amazing display in London of the Moroccan locals, the Sheriffian post and the foreign post offices issues on cover.
