ABOUT PHILLIPINO STAMPS
 
December 1853, the Spanish Governor General Antonio de Urbiztondo issued a circular in which he ordered the institution from 1 February 1854, prepaid the postage required to mail all questions on the islands is shown moving from one province to another, or between the same cities. Urbiztondo is the now famous "The Circular E INSTRUCCIONES PARA EL OF ARREGLO Poste de estas ISLAS DE LA Correspondence", founded the first regular posts in the Philippines, and began to use the stamps for mailings.
 
The first stamps were issued Feb. 1, 1854, and four were 5 quarto volumes, 10 volumes in the fourth, a man and 2 Reales. These stamps in your profile dummy Spanish Queen Isabella II.
 
Until 1872, all stamps on the islands are identical to those issued in other colonies of Spain. This year, however, another stamp was issued Philippines. Bar century King Amadeus of Spain, and the words "CORREOS Philippines." Three years later, a new set of stamps. The figure of King Alfonso XIII bar. In 1891, the stamps show the image Alfonso XIII, as a child of three years, and the words "Philippines" was issued. Alfonso XIII
 
The stamps were the last to be released by the Spanish government until its collapse in 1898.
 
Unlike our current practice of affixing stamps in the upper right corner of the envelope, stamps during the Spanish period was sometimes inserted into the top left corner of the cover.
In those days, vendors sell them stamped by the Commission, as evidenced by the following provisions of the circular Urbiztondo: "Head of the province is responsible for issuing postage stamps and the Chief Estancadas Round and consent of the superintendent was given a commission of 10% on the sale of postage and expenses that may arise in the course of their work, work, and liabilities as a result. "
 
It also seems that the Spanish authorities allowed the division of stamps in the denomination of two large patches of a lower value. A local stamp collector, for example, has an envelope postmarked in Manila July 6, 1857 and addressed to an SD Gil Feline Guagua, Pampanga. The envelope was in the upper left 10 quarts stamp cut diagonally to pass as a mark of five pages. The explanation for this oddity seems that due to the absence of a seal 10 pages of the brand of ATM cut the patch in half so you can have two quarts 5 stamps to meet all likelihood, the local postal rate at the time .
