I came across an article in Atalaya entitled "Audhali revisited" that included a picture of the 70 cents issue from the 1964-65 series issued by Aden overprinted AUDHALI. The other values of the definitive set were also overprinted.

The overprint seems to have been done professionally.

Other than that bit of speculation by the writer of the original article, there has been nothing more about this overprint in Atalaya. Does any board member have any more information?

The image is taken from Atalaya: Cinderella Magazine, Winter 2007-08, Vol. 33, No 1, p. 5.

Thanks,
AndrewG

Hello agondocz,

I can't help with this overprint but thanks to Google I found pictures of some very different Audhali essays:

Here's a short Wikipedia article with a map showing the location of Audhali:

Hello nigelc,

Thanks!

Howard Courtney has done a great job with the Audhali essays. Thank you for letting me know about the page.

Occasionally you may find the Audhali essays listed by Howard in the Abu Dhabi section of auctions.

Best wishes,
AndrewG
