Old Stamps Of French Liban / Lebanon ( Middle East )

Lebanon was part of the Turkish Empire and used Turkish postage stamps during that time.   In the immediate aftermath of World War 1, when it was a French mandate, it used French stamps overprinted for use in the combined territories of Greater Syria.  The first Lebanese stamps in 1924 were actually overprinted French stamps. When Lebanon became a republic on 23 May 1926,  its stamps were printed as Republique Libaneise but later on were simply marked as Liban.
