Information
A seaport in Greece, Kavalla of today. A French Post Office (within the Turkish
Empire - 'Levant') operated in Cavalla from 1874, using stamps of FRANCE until
1893 when stamps with overprint or inscription 'CAVALLE' first appeared. In 1913
BULGARIA overtook Cavalla and that same year it was occupied by GREECE (HELLAS),
of which it is still a part. Stamps for the French Post Office were issued between
1893-1903 and it closed in 1914. Stamps for the Greek occupation were issued in
1913, overprints on stamps of Bulgaria.
