Franchise Stamp

Inside #S2: Pseudo Stamp

The franchise stamps of Spain are unusual in that they were issued to individuals rather than to organizations or societies. In 1869, Spain issued the world's first franchise stamp, the nondenominated blue Envelope franchise stamp to Diego Castel (for his use in distributing his booklet on Spanish postal history - Today's postal historians no doubt are envious of Castel). Spain issued a second franchise stamp for a similar purpose in 1881, this time to Antonio Fernandez Duro, for distribution of his book on the history of Spanish postage stamps. The nondenominated black on buff paper Open Book franchise stamp, Scott S2, is shown above.

Lou Guadagno wrote: The 3 stamps were issued in Barcelona, Spain in 1945 to note the End of Local Postal Tax Stamps in that city.  
Starting in 1929, various compulsory postal tax stamps were issued to be used on all inland mail from Barcelona to help pay for the cost of the International Stamp Exhibition held in Barcelona in 1929. The use of postal tax stamps ended on December 31, 1945.
The 3 stamps exist imperf, and an unlisted commemorative s/s without franking value was also issued late in 1945 to raise funds for the city.
The stamps and sheet were also produced with a diagonal "NAVIDAD 1945" overprint; these were sold to raise funds for Christmas charities, but supposedly not authorized.

5th CENTENARY OF DISCOVERY OF AMERICA

This seventh edition closes the thematic cycle dedicated to the 5th Centenary of the Discovery, in which there has been a procession of characters, events and symbols on stamps, related to this unique undertaking by Spain, just after it had itself become a nation, opening up the door to where old Europe had yet to explore.

Spanish stamp collecting had a long delayed debt to Columbus and his seamen and the conquest; in 1853 Chile, whose coasts were never visited by the Admiral, was the first to place his figure on stamps, at such an early date, and to continue with it as a main feature on its series of stamps.

In Spain, on the occasion of the Latin America Exhibition in Seville, in 1929, Alfonso XIII´S government received many demands to commemorate and perpetuate the memory of that event; with a correct criterium, it opted for satisfaction through stamp issues, by Royal Order of 29.9.1930, publishing an issue in Seville with twelve different engravings, covering ordinary mail, air mail and that to Latin America, thus paying Spanish stamp collecting's debt to Columbus.

The one which has now appeared, coincides with two commemorative events; that of the World Fair in Seville, and the commemoration of five hundred years after the gesture by Columbus.

The aforementioned issue is in three stamps, in a triangular form, bearing the motive which best symbolizes the Discovery: the captain's ship, the Santa Maria, to the fore, the caravels in the background on either side.

These stamps are Spain's way of making up for stamp issue omissions of old, using present day quality, colour and printing techniques for the ships used by Columbus, for the logotype the Discovery deserves.

WORLD´S PHILATELY- Granada´92

The second issue that the Spanish Postal Administration has dedicated to Granada inside the 500th Anniversary series (the first went to Santa Fe, since it was the starting point of Columbus travels by land, backed by Ferninand and Isabella, before fitting out the ships that would carry him to the Indies) is comprised of one block sheet with two stamps and a complementary picture showing the main part of the monument to Columbus in the city of Darro. This block sheet is a commemorative gesture on the occasion of the World´s Philately Exhibity Fair on the Discoverer's passage through Granada and the crowning of his adventure in Guanahaní.

The motifs of the two stamps are exact replicas (except for their rates) of the stamps issued on September 29, 1930, dedicated to Columbus´ feat. They are philately's now permanent symbol of the flagship flanked by the caravels, and the stamp depicting Columbus´ arrival in the New World. One is from the burin of Sánchez Toda, a master in the art of stamp engraving and an old acquaintance of philatelists; the other gives hobbyists a chance to research these mysteries which are an important part of the gestation of a stamp. Both were printed in London.

The Spanish Postal Service Propitiated the grant of this important philatelic show to our country and its placement in Granada, since Granada is a universal city whose limits stretch beyond the horizon to the west to all parts of America, whose roots lie in Granada, and to the east, to all the cultures Granada received, absorbed and still preserves in red stone and singing fountains, as a universal treasure.

150th Anniversary, First Stamps of Philippines

#1 Inside #3315: Philippines #1O

The first postage stamps used in the Philippines were issued by Spanish colonial authorities in 1854. The first Spanish Philippine stamps do not bear the name of the country, but are identified through the portrait of the reigning monarch, in this case Isabella II in profile with a coronet. Denominations are 5 and 10 cuartos, 1 and 2 reales. These were hand­engraved on metal plates, and thus differ from each other in many minute details. One carries the word carros instead of carreos, a genuine error valued by stamp collectors.

150th Anniversary, First Spanish stamps issued for Cuba and Puerto Rico

  Inside #3378: Cuba #1O

At the time, Cuba and Puerto Rico, both belonged to Spain and stamps were first used there from 1855 onwards. The design used in these stamps, a profile image of queen Isabel II and at the top the word Correos (Post), was the same for those used in Spain. The stamps were used in Cuba until 1898, when the American intervention took place, and these last ones depicted King Alfonso XIII.

This issue reproduces a letter sent from Havana to the northern Spanish town of Santander and a copy of a ½ silver “real” (an old Spanish coin).

http://www.correos.es/

Lou Guadagno wrote: It commemorates the 150th Anniversary of the First Stamps of Cuba and Puerto Rico (Spanish Antilles), and reproduced is Cuba # 1.  There is no country name on the stamps as they were used on both islands and the only way to tell where they were used is by the cancels.  Next to the stamp is a Habana  postmark with an indistinct date which should have been 1855.

Stamp Day - Spanish philatelic association

  Inside #????: Pseudo Stamp

On the 10th April 1869, a group of people fond of stamps created The London Philatelic Society, the oldest philatelic association in the world. It was awarded the “Royal” title in 1906 due to its prestige and international acknowledgement which it still has today and is now known as The Royal Philatelic Society London. Based on the English example, philatelic associations were established in other countries. In Spain, the first associations came up at the end of the XIX century being one of the first ones The Philatelic Society of Seville founded in 1895. In 1900 the Valencia Philatelic Union was created with regulations published in Spanish and French gathering up the objectives of this association. It writes down a “Stamp Swap” section between members with a road map under strict control. This association and the thriving Catalonian Philatelic Society from Barcelona, attempted from the beginning of the XX century to unite Spanish philately so that dealers and stamp collectors could create common philatelic societies. At an international level there are different federations of philatelic associations. The International Federation of Philately (FIP), the European Federation of Philatelic Associations (FEPA), the Interamerican Federation of Philately (FIAF) and the International Association of Philatelic Experts (AIEP) are amongst the most important.

Europa - Letters

(Thanks to Lou)

2003 Inside #3579: Spain #3227P

This year’s Europa issue, a stamp launched by the member countries of Post Europ (Association of European Public Postal Operators) with a common theme, is devoted to the letter; a communication system that for centuries has been carried out by the public postal administrations.

The dictionary defines the letter as “A written or printed communication directed to a person or organization“. Similar definition has used Correos throughout history to define the task of the Spanish Post implying the secret and inviolability of communications and their delivery to the addressee.

It is the most used means of communication by politicians, scientists, writers and men and women throughout history and it has been the only means of communication until the telegraph and later on the telephone appeared. Writers from all times and countries have used letter writing as a literary gender as means of expressing their feelings and emotions such as José Cadalso, Juan Valera, Quevedo, Volatire, Bécquer and Kafka amongst many others have left us their excellent publications in the form of letters. A 19th century text defines the letter as: “a comfort to people of all social classes; the arrival of a letter is always a wonderful piece of news like the visit of a friend or beloved relative”

The Europa stamp issued on this occasion is part of a souvenir sheet recreating a romantic composition. The author, J. Carrero, creates a figurative painting with a set design were appear different elements of everyday life such as a mantelpiece, a glass with colourful flowers, letters and cancelled envelopes making up a harmonious set where the letter is the key element with a message beginning: “Dear beloved Inés…”

(black, not blue, also a partial lower frame detail)

Fermín Caballero, one of the most prominent political and intellectual personalities of the reign of Isabel II, is being included in the series Personalities due to his link to the origin of stamps in Spain. In 1843, when he was Minister of Governance, he passed the first order to study the establishment of prepaid postage in this country: “recently adopted in some countries in Europe…”

The stamp shows half of the man's face, in which his intense gaze stands. In the background are images of Madrid and the first stamp from 1850 with the word “Certified”. Foil was used in the printing process to give it a metallic aspect.

Fermín Caballero (Barajas de Melo, Cuenca, 1800 – Madrid, 1876), from a well-to-do family, began his studies in his native town. He seemed to be destined for the Church, where several of his family members were active, and consequently entered the seminary of Cuenca to study philosophy and later the University of Zaragoza to continue with theology. The revolution of 1820 changed his direction and he began to become involved in politics, switching from ecclesiastical studies to law, which he studied at the University of Alcalá de Henares (Madrid).  

With liberal ideas, he joined the Progressive Party and in 1834 was elected by Madrid and Cuenca to occupy a seat as a lawyer; he chose to occupy the seat in Cuenca. In this tumultuous period of constant political change, Fermín Caballero was the mayor of Madrid and Minister of Governance under Joaquín María López. After the fall of this government, he left politics and focused on intellectual work, publishing several works.

In his younger years he was a writer for the newspaper “Boletín de comercio”, which was later called the “Eco del comercio, which played an important role in the development of liberalism.

He showed an interest in geography and agriculture throughout his life. He was a member of the Territorial Division Committee and worked to build the foundations of a statistical and population census system. Among his published works, of note are “Nomenclatura geográfica de España (Geographical nomenclature of Spain)” (1834), “Manual geográfico-administrativo (Geographical-Administrative Manual)” (1844) and “Fomento de la población rural (Promotion of the rural population)” (1863).

PHILATELIC COLLECTORS

Inside #????: Many stamps TBI

According to the definition of the Dictionary of the Royal Spanish Academy of the Language, Philately is the "collecting and studying postage stamps as a hobby".

There are many people who over the years have immersed themselves in the exciting world of stamps, becoming not only a hobby, as the RAE points out, but even a way of life.

Interest in stamp collecting began almost simultaneously with the appearance of the first stamp in the United Kingdom in 1840.

The term that referred to this activity was born two decades later, in 1864, when Gustave Herpin used the term “philatélie” in an article in the magazine Le Collectioneur de stamps-poste, referring to stamp collecting as such.

The word origin comes from joining the Greek terms 'philo' (love, friend, lover) and 'atéleia' (exempt from taxes or tribute).

Although there is no record of who the first stamp collectors were, there are reports that speak of people who, a few years after the stamp was born, published advertisements in the press of the time requesting to exchange correspondence with other people, with the in order to receive stamps and thus collect them.

Today stamp collecting continues to have its loyal fans. Every year, in different countries of the world, philatelic exhibitions are held that gather fans from many countries around these small stamps.

In Spain, the EXFILNA is an event awaited each year by national and international collectors, where in addition to being able to enjoy collections from individuals, novelties are released, increasingly innovative, that revolutionize the world of philately.

Postmark

The stamp with which Correos wants to pay tribute to philatelic collector's features the famous painting The Philatelist, the work of the Swiss painter François Barraud, from 1929. In addition, it is printed with a magnifying glass effect that makes it even more special.
