The Kingdom of Kabul (Aghanistan) first issued stamps in 1871. Early designs featured a tiger's head, symbolizing the name of Amir Sher (tiger) Ali. From 1871 to 1892 the date of the Muslim year also appears. Afghan stamps of the period were issued without gum and imperforate. When used, they were cancelled by cutting or tearing a piece from the stamp. Before 1928, when Afghanistan joined the Universal Postal Union, Afghan stamps were valid only for use within the country itself. Mail traveling to other countries needed the addition of Indian stamps. www.spellman.org
