Land of Muggy stamp collecting 


The 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.

The 2nd Union of capitals Historical Issues types.

The 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.

The first stamps of the first Royal Palace Post

A 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.

The 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.

The First Plato Issue 2789

Imperf/ no gum

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.

One of the first Palace Jewel paper sheets


Early 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 withdrawn.

The Perforated Issue of 2790

In 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

Imperf/ no gum

The 'Rock Green' Issue from 2090

In 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 documents library.
