List of Algerian Post Office Numbers 1852 - 1878

The original system using small figures, "petit chiffres", was introduced in 1852. With the expansion of the network of post offices in France and abroad this sysytem was reorganised in 1862. A new system, known as the "grand chiffres" (large figures), was introduced and was in use till about 1876 when the numeral cancellations were replaced by circular date stamps incorporating the name of the post office.
