Registered letter sent from Jericho on 28.Dec.1994 Chap.4a

The rubber stamped , "Jericho Locals” stamps Chap. 5h Changing the currency of stamps , using a rubber stamp Due to the promise of Israel P. M. to approve the stamps after change of the currency by an overprint i.e. Fils instead of Mils , The Pal. Auth ordered in Germany a reprint of the early issues of stamps , with an overprint of " FILS " currency . These series of stamps appeared on 10.Apr.1995 .

As a safety measure , in case the revised stamps will not appear in time , the P.A. prepared a small rubber cachet bearing the word " Fils:” . The intention was to apply this cachet manually on existing stock of Mils stamps .

Eventually the stamps appeared in time , and NO need was to use this handstamp . However the postmaster of Jericho applied the Fils cachet on some of the Mils issues as a gesture . They are tilled or named " The " Jericho Locals” . Some of them were posted at Jericho and Gaza Strip post offices . . They appear in three colors : Violet , red, and black . They were accepted for postage at all P.A. offices and went through Israel (for overseas) without objection .

The rubber handstamp "Fils” was applied on all stamps w that were in effect at the begining of 1995 , including the series of Flags, Eagles, Landscapes and the Peace agreement s/s The rubber handstamped "Fils " series exist in three colors : Violet , Red , and Black .
