  I have brought these prices up to date and added currency selection.  
I have not had to re-number the National issues, but I have made
some additions to the local ones and others.
  To avoid confusion, I will give these RH numbers (Revised Hiscocks).

Hiscocks added the following 2 notes:

Note 1. Used stamps of 1864 to 1868 or 9 are normally cancelled with a rough punched hole of 3-4mm diameter.
Note 2. My copy of Morley's catalogue has a pencilled notation covering Nos. 1-4 (or possibly 1-3)
                "were rare but 1 sheet of each was found" !

My note: I understand that there are 'replicas' of these around.
Anyone know how to recognise them ?

Hiscocks added the following note on page 267:

Note. Following this issue postage stamps were used for telegraphic purposes until 1901. Their telegraphic use
                is recognised by punched cancellations.

My note: These stamps were inscribed "COMUNICACIONES" to indicate that they were valid for both postal and telegraphic communications.
This was changed to "CORREOS Y TELGRAFOS" (Posts & Telegraphs) for the 1879-89 issues, possibly to prevent their use to pay for telephone calls ?
The use of punches appears to have been phased out as the cost of telegraphy dropped and potential re-use was less of a problem.

I have put some tentative prices in, but these are postally used prices in US$ as of 2007. Telegraphically used will be much less, but this might give relative scarcity.
There is a Spanish catalog by Manuel Gálvez Rodríguez (Catálogo : pruebas y ensayos de España 1960) that gave prices for punched stamps. It would be more appropriate for this.
If anyone has a copy and can provide this information, I will happily update the prices and include them in this listing.

though not inscribed "COMUNICACIONES" were still apparently being telegraphically used until at least 1905.

 



P34 P34

King Alfonso XII died before his son was born. His son was therefore King from birth and his mother Maria Christina Henriette Desideria Felicitas Raineria (of Austria),
the Queen of Spain was regent from the death of her husband until 1902 when her son took over at 16. There are proofs with her head and a similar frame to Type 13.
I have seen them in 8 different colours, also matching colours of Type 13. All have have the value 30c. My example seems strangely small and I am not sure if it is genuine.


War Tax was levied on an obligatory basis on mail during the wars of 1874-6 and 1898-1900.
At least some of these have the familiar punch holes, so it seems likely that they were also required to send telegrams.

Other values and colours are known of the 'numeral' stamps of 1897-99
For "1897 A 1898" Michel says that there are values of 30-90c in blue-green and 1-10p in rose - I have most of the greens and the 1p rose.
Also they list for the "1898 - 99." series 30-90c in black and 1-40p in blue - I have seen 30c, 40c, 50c, 60c, 70c, 90c, 1p, 1p20c, 1p80c, 2p, 2p50c, 3p50c, 5p and 10p.
They do not list these as they say that they were not for postal use. I do not know if they were all for fiscal use, or if some had telegraphic use.

More information is needed.

Hiscocks added the following 3 notes:

Note 1. Control numbers are typically of 6 figures starting with '0' (apparently a numeral rather than letter).
                The ink used was not fast and, on used copies, the control number is often faint and sometimes difficult
                to detect at all. Missing controls are thus not priced in used condition.
Note 2. The use of punched cancellations ceased before 1901 and this and subsequent issues were cancelled
                with (usually) a line of handstamped type, often smudged, in black or purple together with, in many cases,
                a pen cancellation — usually the date.
Note 3. The 50c value (No. 35) has been implicitly reported imperf. in that the whole set is priced in that state,
                but the most authoritative source (in my view) excludes this value imperf.

The used stamps above show that Hiscocks note 2 is not entirely correct.

Having bought a mounted mint set of these, sold as genuine for €75, I started looking closely at these after scanning.
Some of them look rather suspicious. According to Filatelia Digital, Spain has the dubious honor of being the first country
in which a stamp was falsified, and has been continuing with this tradition for 150 years.
Generally forgers concentrate on postage stamps, but stamps for telegraphic use can be relatively high denominations.
I know there are forgeries of the 1905 1p and 10p.


Spain-1P comparison
At the top is a 1921 one peseta stamp and at the bottom an overprinted one peseta stamp. Though the overprint looks like it could be genuine,
the actual stamp looks more like a typo example than a litho example. The perforations look reasonable, but the printing looks fuzzy and poor quality.
It seems unlikely though, that there would be a genuine overprint on a fake stamp !
Does anyone have information about fake Spanish Telegraph stamps?

                values are perf. 13½ x 13¼ and have therefore listed this variety.

 

Cancellations.

H35
An ornate cancel on H35.



Hiscocks says (page 265): In 1870 and until 1878 a series of unified postage and telegraph stamps - the various "Comunicaciones" types - were issued.
From 1879 to 1889 two series specifically inscribed "Correos y Telegs" were issued and from 1889 to 1899 a further series of "Comunicaciones".
These bore the same relationship to telegraph stamps as the 'Postage and Revenue' stamps of, for example, Great Britain and India did to revenue stamps:
that is, they were used for telegraphic purposes but were mainly intended for postal use and mainly so used.

Hiscocks does not include them for that reason, but I will.

Hiscocks goes on to say: Their telegraphic use can, however, easily be recognised by the punched cancellations and their inclusion in collections is of course optional.

The following images are courtesy of Jeff Turnbull.

Spain punch-cancels 1

These are the standard type of punched cancels, with the first being by far the most common.

Note. 2 The issue dates of Nos. 3-12 are in doubt.
                Modern Spanish catalogues give 1883 for all issues
                but a reference of 1893 gives 1883 for the imperf.
                and 1886 for the perforated and refers to the thick
                line type (Nos. 5 and 6) as a recent innovation.

 

 

1900 Hoja Telegrafica

This appears to be a combination of a telegraph version of a 1900-05 King Afonso XIII postage stamp (Scott 284),
with a replacement for the 1898 War Tax stamp (Scott MR27).
Spain 1900 essay ?
There was also a 50c + 5c version in grey for sale on Delcampe recently listed as a proof.
Richard Ballhagen tells me that it is listed in an old Galvez catalogue of 1946, along with the 50c + 5c type and was apparently on telegraph stationery.

Hoja de Reintegro (Repayment sheet).

1950? Litho. White wove paper with security lines on the front.
Space for additional adhesives on the back.


These were used for repayment of telegram bills. the impressed stamp on the front is the same size and design as the adhesive stamps.
These appear to have been sold in the form of large sheets having at least 9 'Fraccions' that were subsequently cut from it, completed and signed to repay the cost of telegrams.
Up to 8 additional stamps can be added on the back of one out of a batch. Each was intended for part or whole of a month and I have seen used ones from 1951 to 1955.
They are embossed with a circular 'TELECOMUNICACION' seal in a similar design to the Telegraph stamp.
These seem to be ideally suited for paying telephone bills also, but they have a field labelled "Núm. de telegramas".
An imprint at the bottom of the front reads "FCA. NAL. DE MONEDA Y TIMBRE".

500p back

The back of a 500p sheet (at 150dpi) with 48p10 worth of the standard adhesives, cancelled with a fairly distinctive mark for Oviedo dated 31 March 1955.
John Barefoot states that the perforated stamps were withdrawn 1st January 1952, but they clearly still had a use after that.

 

 

'Huérfanos de Telégrafos' and 'Hogar Telégrafico' stamps.

These mean 'Telegraph Orphan' and 'Telegraph Home' respectively and were charity stamps intended
to raise money for dependents of deceased telegraph workers.
According to Hiscocks, these were optional and he therefore did not list them.

 

 

Telephone stamps.

1884 A royal decree establishes a state monopoly over all telephone services.
1886 The take-over of phone service by private companies is authorized due to lack of interest on the part of the Spanish government.
20 April 1896 An intercity telephone line between Barcelona, Saragossa and Madrid is inaugurated.

For Puerto Rico I am having particular difficulty finding examples of all the stamps that Hiscocks lists.
For Dominican Republic and Honduras, whole sets are surmised on the basis of one or two examples.
For Honduras, there are probably sets missing. For Venezuela, the first, traditionally expensive set are fairly plentiful,
but the later, traditionally cheap stamps are impossible to find. Information from local collectors would be very helpful.

If anyone can provide scans to help with this, I am happy to give appropriate credit.
