World's first postage stamp made of Rubber

       World's first postage stamp made of Rubber

On 28th September 2018, Spain issued the World's first postage stamp made of rubber to commemorate the 200th birth anniversary of Cosme García Sáez, a Spanish inventor.  Cosme García Sáez was born in Logroño in 1818.  The stamp depicts Garcia and 2 of his inventions, a submersible and a seal impression which depicts the year when it was adopted by the postal service.

A submarine is a fully self-sufficient craft, capable of independent cruising with its own power supply and air renewal system, whereas a submersible is a remotely operated vehicle usually supported by a nearby surface vessel.

He offered several improvements to the post, where he built sealing machines in post offices.  It is a machine for all kinds of ink stamps to date letters and other forms. I was adopted by the Spanish Postal Service in 1857, for more than twenty years. The inventor himself was in charge of instructing on its handling.
