Dios, Patria, Libertad (God, Homeland, Liberty) – Dominican Republic

When you collect stamps, you learn interesting things that otherwise you would have no occasion to ever know.

Today, for me, it was the motto of the Dominican Republic: “Dios, Patria, Libertad” which, in English, means “God, Homeland, Liberty”.

In this case, the motto appeared on a tiny un-identified stamp (unfortunately damaged) that I was searching for.   The stamp also contains, which I now realize, is the Dominican Republic Coat of Arms.

It seems that it is a revenue stamp of some sort..the “TIMBRE” at the top gives that away.   I have not been able to find much more information on this stamp, including, what year it was issued.

I do have an additional revenue stamp from the Dominican Republic.  This one with a neat pen cancel.  This one I can easily see is from 1926.

I don’t have a revenue reference for the Dominican Republic so if anyone happens to have any info it would be greatly appreciated.


Note:  You may wonder why I keep both of these stamps, even though their condition is rough…It’s simple…They are my only copies, I doubt I will ever acquire more (on purpose)…and most importantly, I find them interesting.
