About Portuguese Stamp

Portugal's national stamp and postal systems went through a profound series of changes during the 1850s. Portuguese stamp collectors should familiarize themselves with the following terms. The words ''stamp'' in Portuguese is ''selo.'' The word ''collection'' in Portuguese is ''colecao.'' People who collect Portuguese cover stamps should also familiarize themselves with the concept of ''usados'' stamps.During its heyday as a minor European colonial power, Portugal maintained governmental authority over dozens of nations and micro-nations throughout the world. The home government set up postal bureaucracies in these countries, but, unsurprisingly, Portuguese stamp forgeries and corruption abounded. A very good book on the subject of postal malfeasances throughout the Portuguese empire is ''Forgeries of Portugal and Its Colonies,'' a well researched treatise published in 2002 by a man named D. J. Davies.Consider the Azores, one of Portugal's most treasured island possessions. Some of the most interesting postal stamps from the Azores are the ''Vasco da Gama,'' which was printed in 1898 and the ''King Manual'' and ''King Carlos'' issues, which went into printing in the early 20th-century. Azores stamp collectors should be aware that there are three main postal districts which printed stamps during the late 1800s.These three districts sold stamps for approximately 25 reis during the 1890s and early 1900s. You can tell stamps from these districts apart because each stamp series features a unique coloration. Look for the overprinted ''continente'' to tell these districts stamps apart from continental Portuguese stamps. In 1980, the Azores postal service released its first unique set in decades.
