NAWANAGAR-1893 Postage Stamp Issue-Old Indian Princely State Stamps-Illustrated

Issued in 1893 during the reign of Jam Vibhaji (1882-1895) and in values of Docras. The set consists of a 1 Docra (black), 2 Docra (deep-green), and 3 Docra (orange-yellow/with orange shades). The stamps were issued without gum and are more highly valued in a very fine used state. Intaglio seals were used in postal cancellations (three examples are shown here). Nawanagar stamps become obsolete in 1895.

  1. At time the state gave up the private post mailing service on 01.01.1895 all the remaining stock of stamps was overprinted with postmarks 'RaD' (invalid) in various designs.
