The image of the plane seems to be a model, as no registration number is marked on the aircraft; only the inscription Boeing 737-700 is noticeable on the front of the fuselage. However, all the details of the aircraft are consistent and in accordance with the actual model.

At the time of this stamp issue, Iraqi Airways had 2 Boeing 737-7BD: YI-AQK and YI-AQL.
