CHAD

CHAD is a landlocked Northen Central Africa state that owes its name to Lake Tchad. Chad issued its own early stamps between 1922 and 1937, and after World War 2 re-started to issue its own stamps in 1959. Part of the French Colonial Empire during the 1800s, Chad was militarily administered as a district of French Congo during the early 1900s. Therefore the stamps of French Congo were used in Chad, but in 1915 the stamps of the 1907 French Congo definitive series were overprinted OUBANGUI-CHARI-TCHAD, the names of the three main districts of the region which later on split to form Oubangui-Chari and Tchad. At that point the colonial authorities began to prepare to issue Chad's stamps by overprinting the 1907 French Congo definitive stamps with the word TCHAD. In 1920, Chad passed from military to civil administration and after gaining the new status, in 1922, issued its own stamps utilizing Middle Congo stamps overprinted TCHAD. The 1922 set of 18 overprinted stamps, was followed in 1924 by a set of 18 stamps using the 1922 overprinted stamps with an additional overprint in smaller font size reading AFRIQUE EQUATORIALE FRANCAISE. From 1931 to 1937 distinctive stamps inscribed with the name of this territory were issued and postally used on mail. Furthermore, in 1930 a set of 11 postage due stamps inscribed TCHAD in bold letters was issued. From 1938 to 1959 stamps of French Equatorial Africa (AEF) were used in Chad. The 1960 independence is reflected in three stamps issued in January 1961 to salute Chad's admission to the United Nations.
