With French consent, Spain extended its holdings in Spanish Sahara to include Cape Juby which it occupied in 1916. Stamps of Rio de Oro and Spanish Sahara were used in the territory from 1917-1919. Stamps of Rio de Oro (1916) and Spain (1919-1929) were overprinted for use in the territory. From 1934-1948 stamps of Spanish Morocco were overprinted for use in Cape Juby. The four lowest values from the last set of eleven stamps depicting commerce are shown above. In 1950 the territory was incorporated into Spanish Sahara.
