Ifni was ceded to Spain by Morocco in 1860 but not occupied until 1934. It was returned to Morocco in June 1969.
Spanish West Africa was administered from Ifni's capital, Sidl Ifni. The stamps inscribed Spanish West Africa were used Ifni and in Spanish Sahara. There is only one stamp in SWA's first issue.
