TRUCIAL STATES: 1963 Trucial States Traders airmail cover to Austria with Palm Trees 40np tied by Dubai cds. [Valid throughout the Trucial States, however usage was only in Dubai. The palm trees represented the seven Shaikhdoms but were of unequal size, which offended the smaller States. This led to Dubai withdrawing them and issuing their own stamps from June 1963]
