Arms of Spain T-Shirt - This is not a postage stamp. It is a telegraph stamp, used to prepay for the transmission of a telegraph message the way a postage stamp prepays for the delivery of a letter. This particular example features the Arms of Spain with its majestic eagle, with the exciting addition of lightning bolts. Spanish telegraph stamps were generally cancelled by hole punching instead of ink cancellations. Telegraphs fell out of general use a long time ago, but Honduras and the Dominican Republic still issued telegraph stamps into the early 1990s. Look sharp in this Spanish coat of arms t-shirt.
