Brazil officially the Federative Republic of Brazil is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region. It is the world's fifth-largest country, both by geographical area and by population, the largest Portuguese-speaking country in the world and the only one in the Americas. [R1]

The first stamps of Brazil were issued on 1 August 1843 and are known as "Bull's Eyes" due to their distinctive appearance. On 1st July 1844 a new series was issued which is known as the slanted numeral series. For many years stamps from Brazil had Brasil Correio displayed on them. However today the trend is to just have the country name and year, e.g. Brasil 2000. [R2]

Example of Brazilian FDC from 2010 with illustarion printed by collector or dealer Example of Brazilian FDC from 2016 Example of Brazilian FDC from 2014 Nowadays, Post of Brazil produce their FDC on white covers without any cachet/illustration, just with engraved name of the post: Correios.
Some dealers and collectors uses the empty place on the left side of the cover to print their own images, to create more attractive FDCs.
