Overprint on 1955 Definitive - Republic of Cyprus

Cyprus
Cyprus was declared an independent republic on the 16th of August 1960. With the declaration of the Republic of Cyprus, all Cyprus stamps in Cyprus and in the U.K. were considered property of the Republic. It was decided not to destroy them, but instead to overprint them and use them for postal purposes. The phrase "Cyprus Republic" was overprinted in Greek and Turkish.
