Qatar postal stationery

Note: the numbering system used below is copyright © GBOS and may not be used without permission.

This is a simplified listing. The only postal station ery overprinted for Qatar was airletters. The other airletters overprinted for use in the Gulf were also valid in Qatar. Qatar did not begin overprinting airletters or stamps until the decimal currency issue in 1957; before then they used the "value only" overprinted items.
