The Stamps and Postal History of Columbia

Due to the extreme geographic conditions within Colombia, it was logical that the Provinces formed in 1858 be encouraged to set up their own postal services which they did, in 1863 Bolivar State issued her first stamps with the States of Antioquia, Boyaca, Cauca, Cundinamarca, Panama, Santander and Tolima following suit, other local issues were produced and are of interest to stamp collectors.

This is a popular area of philately, printed spaces for these fascinating old stamps were provided in early stamp albums and this area of Colombian philately and postal history has continued to be the focus of serious collecting for generations.
