    In 1893 the Emperor Menelik II sold the concession for running a Post Office and issuing stamps (the Emperor correctly realising his population would not use the service), to Leon Chefneux. The stamps were designed in Paris by Eugene Mouchon and later issued in quantity and sold to the Parisian stamp dealer Arthur Maury. A total of 300'000 sets were issued with the higher values being issued in larger quantities than the lower values. As the face value was in Amharic they could not be accepted by the UPU and thus all mail bearing the first issue was sent via Djibouti. Ethiopia itself only received 135'000 sets of the issue, the balance being held in Paris. 1894: King Menelik II, imperforate Die Proof of the 1 g. blue value on thick white paper. Rare.
