A note about Iraqi FDC's from 2004 - 2009
Iraqi Posts did not issue official FDC's during these years but allowed local stamp dealers to design their own covers which were then presented
to the post office where official first day cancellation handstamps were applied.
For this reason you can find different designs for FDC's for FDC's of same stamp issue.
The one exception to this 'rule' was the excellently produced FDC for the Iraq - China diplomatic relations issue on 28th October 2008 which was printed in China.

IRAQ 2007-2008 Cairo printings
In 2007/2008 several Iraqi issues were originally printed in Cairo but the Iraqi Postal Authority decided that the quality was unsuitable and ordered them to be destroyed by burning.
Amazingly :-), some survived the flames and found their way on to the philatelic market, and some even smelt of kerosene thus authenticating
the claim that they were literally plucked from the flames.
Stamps and miniature sheets printed in Cairo are on gummed paper and mostly in rouletted sheets although some sheets of stamps were perforated.
The miniature sheets, themselves printed in sheets, have were separated by rouletting. (See item 6, below) Items printed in Cairo and condemned and 'destroyed?' in Baghdad which I have found so far are:
1] Iraqi Medicinal Plants. All 3 stamps.
2] Popular Industries. All 3 stamps
3] Iraqi Folklore -. Miniature sheet only
4] Iraq Birds issue. So far I have found the 250D and 500D stamps only
5] Iraqi Theatre Artistes. 250D stamp only.
6] 'Baghdad' miniature sheet. [pic]
I have also a small number of the 250D from the Birds issue with multiple horizontal normal perforations which also escaped torching.
A few items will soon be offered for sale but are available in very small numbers.
