MADAGASCAR

 

Revised August 16, 2016

 

Letter combinations and numerals were used starting in 1896 for some smaller offices.  Numerals were often re-allocated. Where numerals appear below following the name of an office, that is the first allocation.  Other numerals in the sequence are known, but the name of the office is not.

 

There must be a better list.
