(1925 Padroes da grande guerra)

In 1922 a new telegraph stamp was issued (5 c brown):


(Inscription 'TELEGRAFOS REPUBLICA PORTUGUESA')


Bogus issues

I have seen stamps with the inscription 'CORREIOS REINO DE PORTUGAL':


(Reduced sizes)

I have seen the values 2 1/2 r black, 5 r black, 10 r brown and 35 r green. There also should be a 20 r brown. They exist imperforate and perforated (11 for the specialist). These stamps seems to have been issued in Porto during an insurrection in order to re-install the monarchy in 1919.

I have also seen a postcard 'Bilhete Postal' with inscription 'Reino de Portugal' in the value 20 r blue. The postcard bears a design similar to the ones above.


Porte Franco

Several societies had the right to send mail with special 'Porte Franco' stamps, example:


(red cross stamp of 1889)


(Tuberculosis stamp)

Among them a red cross stamp in 1899 (see picture above), a riffle association (?), inscription 'UNADO DOS ATIRADOREES CIVIS' (1899-1920, 12 different stamps), the Tuberculosis association, inscription 'ASSISTENCIA NACIONAL AOS TURBERCULOSOS' (1905, 2 different stamps), the Geographical Society (1905-27, 7 different stamps).
