Postage stamps and postal history of Oltre Giuba
Italy issued its first postage stamps for Jubaland on July 29, 1925, consisting of contemporary Italian stamps overprinted Oltre Giuba (Trans-Juba). The same process was followed for the Italian commemorative issues of the time – the Victor Emmanuel issue, the St. Francis issue. On April 21, 1926, Italy issued a set of seven stamps printed specifically for the colony, depicting a map of the territory and inscribed Commissariato Genle/Dell' Oltre Giuba, then on June 1 the omnibus Colonial Institute issue included a set inscribed Oltre Giuba.
Only a couple of the higher values have more than a minimal price for collectors, although as usual for remote colonies of brief existence, genuine usages on cover are seldom seen.
