An extremely scarce collection in this form and condition.

By an agreement between Great Britain, France and Spain, Tangier was declared an international zone in 1924. Initially, stamps were overprinted 'Morocco Agencies' or surcharged in Spanish currency. The Tangier International Zone received its own overprints beginning in 1927. As British currency was in use in that office, the overprint simply reads "TANGIER". This continued through until 1956.
