Morocco Agencies Gibraltar 1889-96 5p slate-grey used in Tangier, SGZ152
Morocco Agencies Gibraltar 1889-96 Gibraltar 5p slate-grey, with very fine large part "TANGIER" (code "C") circular date stamp, dated "DE 14 95".
A very fine example of this scarce postal cancellation.
When the colonial posts became independent of the British GPO on 1 January 1886, Gibraltar retained responsibility for the Morocco Agencies. Further offices, each under the control of the local Vice-Consul were opened from 1886 onwards.
