10/1943 WWII censored eastbound overland airmail from TEHRAN to HAIFA via BAGHDAD
26670848
WWII period westbound Baghdad overland mail from Iran: 26 X 1943 registered airmail cover from TEHERAN to HAIFA, franked (on back, covering most of return address) 22D & tied by multiple strikes of local postmark + Persian air mail etiquette on front; opened/resealed locally & tied by #4 Russian & #15 English "Anglo-Soviet-Persian Censorship" handstamp (front/back) + Persian "7" censor cachet (front); backstamped 8 NOV 43 BAGHDAD REG transit & 15 NO 43 REG HAIFA arrival; slit open at left. Long 3-week transit time, suggesting that the cover was actually transported via the Baghdad overland route. If transmitted by air the cover may have been carried by ISA to BAGHDAD (Habbaniyah), then via BOAC on leg of "Horseshoe Route" to TIBERIAS - but this not indicated by the postal markings. Joint Allied-Persian censorship began c. Aug 1942 & ended c. autumn 1945. Interestingly cover not censored in Palestine. Overland mail to Palestine is scarce.

7/1945 taxed/censored/returned eastbound overland mail from HAIFA to TEHRAN via BAGHDAD
28170849
Taxed eastbound mail: c. JULY 1945 commercial cover (from HAIFA?) to TEHERAN, sent via overland service via Baghdad but underfranked at 10m (15m was period rate), tied by machine cancel; backstamped 29 JLY 1945 BAGHDAD transit, where cover censored (front); probably at this stage of transmission, cover damaged: backstamped 15 IX 45 TEHERAN arrival (6 week transit), marked for tax on front (uncollected) + opened/resealed & censored by Anglo-Soviet-Iranian censor (front/back); manuscript on back/front (Farsi?) suggests cover could not be delivered, so returned to sender; received HAIFA 1 NO 45 where top of cover sealed by "Found Open or Damaged" sealing label & tied by local postmark; backstamped 3 NO 45 JERUSALEM RLO (as no return address visible). Unusual 4+ month transit time/occurence. Per Collins et. al. "all mail going eastwards is scarce to very rare".

11/1946 late period westbound overland airmail from TEHRAN to JERUSALEM via BAGHDAD
23070851
Late period westbound Baghdad overland mail from Iran: 9 XI 1946 registered airmail cover from Jewish Agency TEHRAN to the Jewish National Fund head office JERUSALEM, franked 26R on back & tied by 2 strikes of local postmark; backstamped 13 NOV 46 REG BAGHDAD transit postmark & 15 NOV 46 REG JERUSALEM arrival; opened roughly at top, complete. Interestingly not censored in Palestine. Rare origin & route: as per the week-long transit time & BAGHDAD transit it is probable that the cover was transported via the Baghdad overland service and not by air mail (unless to BAGHDAD only): Collins notes that by this time no special instructional marking handstamp would be needed as overland was the default route to/from Palestine, making this a late-period cover transported via this route. The Jewish Agency's Tehran office opened on 23 June 1943: as the Agency functioned as the government of the Jewish community of Palestine, this is in effect an "official mail" cover. Overland mail to Palestine is scarce.

12/1982 German mail to Israel via Iran route, now refused service; earliest known
22171288
Start of Iranian postal boycott of Israel: 17-12-1982 airmail printed matter cover from KARLSRUHE to Nuclear Research Center YAVNE, meter franked 1.30DM + German "printed matter" handstamp in red near airmail etiquette; routed via IRAN (as postal relations with Israel existed until some time in 1982) but cover now marked by TEHRAN Post Office with English instructional marking handstamp K-Type-Ia "THEREIS(sic) NO POSTAL RELATIONS | BETWEEN IRANAND(sic) ISRAEL" & returned to sender. Though not backstamped, as transit time was c. 2 weeks to Iran, this cover is earliest known with official Iranian marking of suspended service; less than 30 examples known such marked. Here ironic address. Unsealed per printed matter regulations.

10/1984 Tanzanian airmail to Israel (no postal relations); routed to Iran & refused service
20871289
Unusual postal link / Iranian postal boycott of Israel: 8 [unclear - OCT?] 1984 airmail stationary cover from DAR ES SALAAM Tanzania (no return address) to Israeli civilian PETACH TIKVA, franked 1.55TSh & tied by 2 strikes of local postmark; unusual postal connection & routing as Tanzania cut diplomatic links with Israel in 1973 (renewed 1995) - unlike Chad, there was no record of discreet back-channel relations during the period of cut ties: a possible mistake in identifying the destination, the cover was routed to/via IRAN (which retained postal relations with Israel until 1982), where backstamped 24 OCT 1984 TEHRAN transit + 2x larger TEHRAN 'bridge' datestamps in Arabic & Urdu, but as no postal relations now with Israel, transit stopped - but cover not marked by standard English or Farsi instructional marking (eg. K-Type-Ia); instead dispatched back to sender (backstamped 26 NOV 1984 TEHRAN return-dispatch). Front is manuscript marked in Arabic (eg. not Farsi) "Palestine, Israel" - either applied in Iran or Tanzania + possible censor mark (reminiscent to Iranian digits within circle type). Very oddly routed cover; unique. Slit open at left.
