NICARAGUA Fiscal stamps and fiscal stamps used for postal purposes

Return To Catalogue - Nicaragua postage stamps - Nicaragua miscellaneous


In 1899 the first fiscal stamps (large sized: 24 x 44 mm) were issued in Nicaragua (1 c blue, 2 c yellow, 5 c brown, 10 c green, 50 c violet and 1 P red).

Some railway stamps (FERRO CARIL DE NICARAGUA) were overprinted 'Timbre Fiscal' in 1903 (5 c on 2 c red and 10 c on 1 c red).

In 1904 a new series of large fiscal stamps (size 21 x 37 mm) was issued (1 c orange, 5 c yellow, 10 c blue, 25 c lilac, 50 c green, 1 P brown, 2 P grey, 5 P blue, 10 P red, 25 P green and 50 P red), they have the year '1904' in the design if I'm well informed.

Similar fiscal stamps but without year were issued in 1908: 5 c red, 10 c green, 25 c yellow, 50 c green, 1 P brown, 2 P grey, 5 P blue, 10 P red, 25 P green and 50 P red. In 1912 the following values were added: 5 c violet on green (2 types), 10 c green on blue (2 types), 25 c red on green, 50 c brown on blue and 1 P blue.

Some other fiscal stamps also exist, for example with overprint 'DEP DE ZELAYA' or with inscription 'MOSQUITO RESERVATION' or telegraph stamps with overprint 'DESTACE'.
