The Tree

New Entries

In this post we will continue to focus in the Americas,with stamps from Cuba and Chile...
Let us start with Chile ,with stamps from the 30's to the 70's...

3 single stamp Commemorative series about President's of Chile.. the first Honors the life of Manuel Bulnes and 2 stamps are presented , because the printing was made with two different papers.. the 2nd stamp is a much more thin paper...The 2nd series show us Bernardo O'Higgins and the 2nd stamp is from a different shade of blue..The 3rd president showed is José Joaquin Peréz (the stamp is of the same size as the others, of course... my digital work is not very good yet...)
1931 "Manuel Bulnes" (1[2]) [Litho] Sc(181)[the information of the papers appeared in my SG old catalog of South America, and it revealed to be very accurate...]
1932 "Bernardo O'Higgins" (1) [Litho] Sc(182)
1934 "José Joaquin Peréz" (1) [Litho] Sc(185)

These are stamps from a series about the main Industries and Landscapes of is a 12 stamps series,and I've got 2 still missing ...The series is divided in (c) stamps and (p) stamps..the first 7 stamps (the 5c is missing above) are [Litho] printed and the other 5 (with the 1.80P missing) are [Recess] Printed... the designs are very beautiful and the final result is a very well accomplished series... 

in my continuous quest for strange 'Stamp things' I found 3 of them in the same stamp.. Printing problems , for sure, but they are there!!.
1938/1940 "Industries and Nature" (12) [Litho] Sc(199,...,204)

Some more presidents ...The first two stamps are from series about Bernardo O'Higgins .. these two series have 2 stamps each , one with wmk and other without...the stamps I show from these series are with wmk in the first case and without wmk in the 2nd.. The personality presented in the other two stamps is Francisco Antonio Pinto, also President of Chile in a specific period of time...the 1st is from a series of several portraits, and the last is from a Various Designs series...
1948 "Bernardo O'Higgins" (2) [Litho] Sc(252)
1952 "Bernardo O'Higgins" (2) [Litho] Sc(265)
1956/1958 "Various Portraits" (7) [Litho][1958] Sc(295)
1960/1967 "Various Designs" (8) [Litho][1960] Sc(324)

 [Left] the two stamps have the same design, and in it's original form (1st) it belongs to the above 'Various Designs' series from 1960/1967...this design exists also in another larger size with a difference in the descriptive label .. in this stamp it appears between the two currency numerals ... in the other stamp (of this same series) it appears below the label "Correos de Chile" ...The 2nd stamp offers us a surcharge over the original stamp.. it is an obligatory tax...
1st) 1960/1967 "Various Designs" (8) [Litho][1962] Sc(326)
2nd) 1970 "Surcharge over Sc(326)" (2) [Litho] Sc(RA1)
[Right] portraits from the Politician Diego Portales and from the President Jorge Montt..
1st) 1975 "Diego Portales" (10) [Litho] Sc(481)
2nd) 1965 "Jorge Montt" (1) [Litho] Sc(354)

1st) beautiful stamp commemorating Robinson Crusoe's presence in the Juan Fernandez Island... 
1965 "Robinson Crusoe commemoration" (1) [Litho] Sc(349)

2nd) a landscape stamp commemorating a campaign to plant trees and to contribute to our planet's Good Health...
1967 " National Afforestation Campaign" (1) [Litho] Sc(363)

1st) a stamp about the Rapel Dam
1969 "Rapel Hydroelectric Plant" (1) [Litho] Sc(377) 
2nd) 1968 "The 5 Cities Celebration" (1) [Litho] Sc(371)


Now we are leaving the domain of the [Litho] printed stamps and we are entering the [Recess] printed Territory... some of the stamps I will show are real beautiful specially the 2c stamps of the Tobacco Industry Series of 1948...

these are 1914 stamps and they represent the map of the Golf of Mexico where Cuba appears as the largest Island...  
1914/1915 "Cuba's Map" (10) [Engr (ABNC)][Recess (J.L. Rodriguez,Havana)] Sc(253,254,257)

I will now show a small presentation of the stamps related to the Anti Tuberculosis Fund...

General Calixto Garcia was a very important Personality in Cuba's History , because of his involvement in three Wars against the Spanish Rule over Cuba, that led into the Independence of the Island  after the Spanish-American War... the other stamp of the series must be a nice stamp,with the General riding a Horse.. very nice..!
1939 "General Calixto Garcia" (2) [Recess] Sc(359)

I have showed the other two stamps of this series in a previous post with Cuban stamps.. it is a series about the Tobacco Industry, one of the main income source of the Island..
1939 "Havana Tobacco Industry" (3) [Recess] Sc(358)

Another series related to the Tobacco Industry... I think the 2c stamps is the most beautiful stamp of all that I have presented today..
1948 "Havana Tobacco Industry" (3) [Recess] Sc(420,421)
