A Palestinian stamp, probably from the 1940's,palestine under the british mandate, from my own collection. i do not have any kind of restrictions for those who wish to use this image, given that the legal status of the original is not abused, giving me credit for uploading it is not neccessary, but it would be nice if you point out that it was found on wikimedia commons.

The stamps shows a picture of Rachel's tomb.

(Actually, the stamp was first issued in 1927, and this copy seems to have been used in 1941.) For a fine history of this stamp, see Zywietz [1]. Though this design was first issued in 1927, the 3 mils version was first printed in 1928 and reprinted until perhaps 1942.
