HISTORICAL STAMPS 2789
Historical Issues begin in the time of the 2nd Union of Capitals at Plato City.
They are the stamps that were first printed in 2789 of the Plato calendar
at the Royal Palace. They have words in the Plato language which was modernized
at this time and co-incided with invention of forms of ink printing. They are
denominated in the values of the time of the Plato Alphabet and do not have any
Roman numerals or English words. They are locked into their time and are issued
in sequence of year.
2nd Union of capitals Historical Issues types.
2nd Union of Capitals was declared 2789 at Plato City, and thereafter in each
of the other capitals. Unlike the First Union of Capitals which rotated the Capitals,
Plato City became the fixed 'Grand Capital' of the 2nd Union of Capitals, reviving
the memory of the ancient
times of the Second Plato. It took on all the glory of the past and a great revival
of the history was undertaken.
first stamps of the first Royal Palace Post
few years before, printing onto paper had been invented utilizing wood-block and
then stone-block presses. The Union introduced under the Fathers of Currency Direction,
a paper currency for the use between the capitals only. This co-incided with the
Great Revision of the Alphabets to provide a universal printing Alphabet that
could be more easily printed but also written.
top panel of the first stamp has first the value of 1 in the Plato numeral followed
by the letters for PLATO where the stamp was printed and issued from. Below is
the oldest depiction of the symbol for the Middle of the Land of Muggy, which
was also the symbol of the
2nd Union of Capitals at Plato City. The symbol was also adopted for the Flag
of all the Land of Muggy. On the bottom border is a repeatition of the Kings personal
symbol. This stamp was printed in 'Royal' which was the purple color of the Plato
City on Palace Jewel Paper. This first issue was not perforated or gummed, although
it was glued to Royal diplomatic packages.

First Plato Issue 2789
The Palace treasury designed
and then authorized the printing of sheets of stamps to be used by the Royal
Designate Shipper for the purpose of charging for Royal and government letters
and mails along the exclusive Royal Carriage Ways. It was decided that
these stamps could only be printed and issued from Plato City for royal
mails. Wherever possible the mails went by sea under the protection of
the flag and then by land ways that were soon improved by paving, bridges,
stables and fortifications. Special stamps were designed to show the ancient
Gildo symbol of the 2nd Union of Capitals. That chosen was the oldest
known carving from the Main Palace walls in Plato city which also appeared on
the paper currency. The design also bore the new script for Plato
and the numeral for 1 on either side. On the bottom it repeated the kings
personal symbol. They were printed by the Palace Treasury in the Royal
color of Plato City which was purple. Each stamp had the word for Plato
in a panel just below the top margin. The King had his personal sign repeated
along the bottom margin. The first sheets were hand printed from wood blocks onto
special 'palace jewel paper' and were at first not gummed or perforated.
They were cut from the sheet and glued to the letters or goods. The first use
of these stamps was a grand affair. In the summer of 2789 the Royal Designate
Shipper and his guards made the round journey from Plato City to Greenscien
to pay for the re-aquisition of the Keysadore Canal to the authority of
The Second Union of Capitals.

Palace Jewel paper sheets
in 2790 of the following year, advances in paper made it possible to print the
stamps on superior paper but the design remained the same. And for a time, the
stamps were not gummed and were imperforate. The Palace Jewel Paper issues were
The Perforated Issue of 2790
2790, the first issue was re-printed on new gummed paper and perforated for ease
of use. But soon all printings were on gummed and perforated papers. The first
imperforate ungummed stock was still used until depleted, so both types were in
circulation during 2791.
Palace issue 2
'Rock Green' Issue from 2090
2090 the Office of the Assemblage, was set up to authorize the printing
of stamps for the other destinations, and their distribution to 'Issue Offices
of Assemblage Abroad'. The first stamp was printed for the capital of Lolenia
in its 'Royal' color of rock green. This is the 'Rock Green Issue' and was the
second perforated and gummed issue. The Royal Shipper was ordered to provide a
special Knott cancel for all the mail, which in these days only went only from
PLato City and Lolenia to the capital of Greenscien via the Land Ways. The cancel
had to be that of the recieving Capital, which was Greenscien, and so, came about
the knott cancel of Greenscien. The cancelled stamps were stored in the Royal
Palace issue 3.
