Dinosaurs, fossils, paleontologists on stamps and postmarks of 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.
The first stamps of Brazil were issued on 1 August 1843 and are
known as "Bull's Eyes" due to their distinctive appearance.
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.
Brazilian FDCs today are on white covers with no cachet or illustration.
These FDCs are engraved with the 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.
