70358
Israeli khaki denim hat of the Municipality of Rechovot, circa. 1950s
82570358
Israel: khaki denim hat of the Municipality of Rechovot, circa. 1950s. The visored hat is marked "Municipality of Rechovot" in black, in Hebrew on the front. Inside on the crown is a diamond-shaped thick-paper makers-mark similar in style to the diamond marks of other Israeli hat makers of the time; the sweat-band is of a brown faux-leather type used in Israeli military and civilian hats of the 1950's (probably a substitute for scarce leather during this Austerity period). The sweatband contains the original cardboard ring insert, intended to retain the shape of this otherwise soft hat. The use of the khaki color was popular in Israeli clothes of the post-War [of Independence] 1950s, with Prime Minister Ben-Gurion setting the tone himself, and with the color implying a mixture of popular defence as well as popular settlement and development of the State.

7/1956 Egyptian airmail to UK rejected as addressed to Israel, sent to UK then Israel
97671239
Egyptian "No Service" mail sent to Israel: 23-7-1956 airmail cover from ALEXANDRIA to SOUTH AMBLTON (UK) whose sender & addressee details placed erroniously in incorrect locations on the envelope's front; franked 52m & dispatched from ALEXANDRIA, but as sender's name "Esmaiel" & appears in addressee field, the Egyptian post office treated it as "Israel", censored it (K-Type-7, #80) & marked it "no relaciones" + "retour" (red manuscript), indicating the address in the return address field (the actual intended address); cover dispatched to UK where the post office processed the letter based on the information in the addressee section (the sender's information) - and again misunderstood his name as "Israel" & erroniously dispatched it there, and did not delivered locally as intended; backstamped 17-8-56 TEL AVIV arrival. Unusually not censored in Israel. As per the red crayon "Retour" manuscript on back, it appears the cover was then "returned" to the UK, to the originally intended addresee. A rare instance of Egyptian mail reaching Israel; only one known Egyptian-UK-Israel cover. Slit open at top.
