Bangladesh - provisional overprints

 

After the independence of Bangladesh (East Pakistan) local post office officials used hand stamp overprints on stamps from Pakistan. These overprints consist of the country name Bangladesh or Bangla Desh in English and/or Bengali. Also some stamps were overprinted by using machines.

Collecting these overprints is a real speciality and complete catalogue lists are not available. Overprints that are part of the UNOstamps collection can be found on this special page.

 

To date overprints are found on the issues:

 

Universal Declaration of Human Rights 10th anniversary (1958)

Universal Declaration of Human Rights 15th anniversary (1963)

International Education Year (1970)

Universal Children's Day (1970)

Universal Children's Day (1971)

UNESCO 25th anniversary (1971)
