About Portugal Stamp

The Portugal postal system dates all the way back to the 12th century, although no Portugal stamp was invented for several centuries more. Students who went to university elsewhere in Europe needed some way to communicate with their families back home. Thus, a Portuguese courier service developed, which eventually metastasized into what became known as the Royal Postmaster General post. This nascent postal system was a hereditary, insular organization.The private courier system was insufficient to handle the postal communications of the Portuguese populace. Thus, in 1797 and 1798, the Portuguese post system instituted a number of reforms. Starting in the 1820s, individual posts opened up in Portuguese villages. (This reform came way before the advent of the universal Portugal stamp system, so recipients had to pay a premium to collect their mail, usually five reis.)Some ad hoc entrepreneurs actually gathered the unwanted mail from the post office storehouses and redistributed these stamp-less letters to the people for a lesser price, usually around three or four testoes. The Portuguese postal system didn't fully reform and issue a Portugal stamp until the mid-1800s, after witnessing Great Britain's tremendous success with its universal penny stamp.In 1853, the country issued its first two postal stamps, valued at five reis and 25 reis, respectively. These stamps depicted the Portuguese Queen Maria II. It wasn't until approximate 40 years later that the country printed its first set of commemorative stamps. These honored Henry the Navigator, a legendary Portuguese Prince who lived in the 1300s.
