*I have added this due to a reference to TE 2a in the
Ciardi Catalogue.

These were used as a surcharge for incomplete addresses.
In use, these had to be presented with the Duplicate 'heel' still attached.
Used ones have no heel and are canceled with the National Telegraph dater postmark.

 

Watermark.

Hiscocks described these as not having a watermark, but the four stamps of my set all show signs of one.
It is not easy to see what it is, but looks like it is probablt "TELEGRAFOS / ~ ~ DEL ~ ~ / URUGUAY" sideways in 3 lines repeated throughout the sheet.

Uruguay wml '~ ~ DEL ~ ~'
Uruguay wml 'URUGUAY'

 

 

Telegraph Seals.

A range of different seals were used on telegrams in Uruguay.

This half sized image shows a sample of them.
Uruguay Seals

Steve Hiscocks made a start on cataloguing seals of the world in a book he published in 2007.
It was his hope to update it later, but unfortunately that was not to be.
His original book can be viewed at Telegraph Seals: A World Catalogue. There are links from the pages to my updates.

Alternatively you can view the latest page for Uruguay.
