On February 21, 1863 president de Acha issued a decree to reorganize the postal service. Stamps were to be introduced, but in this case the postal service would be auctioned to the highest bidding private company. Justiniano Garcia won the bidding at the minimum 17,000 pesos. A contract was signed on March 18, 1863 and service was to begin on June 1, 1863.

Senor Garcia prepared for the printing of his stamps, as instructed by the contract. However, political intrigues caused the contract to be suspended as of April 29, 1863 until the national assembly had ruled in the matter. This never happened. This means that the contract was effectively cancelled, only 42 days after it was signed. Unfortunately, Senor Garcia had already printed some of his stamps. They were never issued, but a few exist with cancels. These cancels are forgeries or were applied by favor. Very few covers with Garcia's stamps exist, but all of them are suspect - no known cover with these stamps is known to be genuinely and postally used.

On March 12, 1867 a new president, Mariano Melgarejo, decreed that the government would issue stamps. A local printer, Ramon Estruch, was commissioned to prepare the printing plates. He engraved five plates in soft copper, including a plate for a 500 centavos stamp that was never issued.

The soft copper plate wore out quickly. However, the 5 centavos was the only value printed in large quantity, and therefore had to be re-engraved four times and retouched six times…..
