On June 29, 2022, Brazil issued unexpectedly a stamp at the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the independence of the country and claimed joint character with a to-be-issued Portugal stamp. The design of the Portuguese stamp was missing at the date of the first announcement, but Enzo Cafaro (Italy) was able to provide it, ahead of release on September 7, 2022. This issue is definitely a concerted [C] issue as designs are identical [C20220629].
Brazil issued on June 29, 2022 a stamp that ends up a series of six postage stamps, entitled “Brazil, 200 Years of Independence”, produced through a partnership between the Chamber of Deputies and Correios Brasil (Brazilian Post) that began back in 2017. The stamp shows the painting “Sessão do Conselho de Ministros” (Ministry Council Session) by Georgina Moura Andrade de Albuquerque (1885-1962). It depicts also in a medallion the portrait of “Dom Pedro I” (1798-1834) painted by Simplício Rodrigues (1785-1839). Independency was eventually accepted by the King of Portugal, Dom Joao VI (1767-1826), in 1825 through the signature of a first international treaty. Above all, the stamps shows the words ‘Joint issue Brazil Portugal’.
This Brazilian stamp is unexpectedly issued jointly with Portugal. Brazil issued 96,000 stamps in miniature sheets of 12 stamps [4×3]. Portugal will issue its stamp only on September 7, 2022 and there is so far no information available regarding the design.
Eventually the Anita Garibaldi stamps from Uruguay came on the market on November 26, 2021. Stamp is identical to the Brazilian stamp. It is issued in sheetlets of 12 stamps, but only at 15,000 samples. The Brazil stamps were issued on August 30, 2021 (Information provided by Jaap Sarelse, the Netherlands, and Kenneth Sequeira, Dubai ).
The Brazil – Estonia – joint issue was released on November 10, 2021 (instead of November 1 as initially announced) with identical stamps featuring buildings from each country. The Estonia stamp became available in miniature sheets of 10 stamps [2×5] ordered tête-bêche and the Brazilian stamp in miniature sheets of 12 stamps [3×4].
