2007, Portuguese production motorcycles on post stamps
CTT's philatelic department challenged the Portuguese to give their opinion on future philatelic issues, in that sense a competition was prepared "Aqui há selo", as a result of this consultation, on 4 July 2007, CTT launched a collection of stamps whose motive was: "motorcycles made in Portugal". The official launch was made in collaboration with MOTO CLUBE DE FARO (in the year of the celebration of the 25th anniversary of this association), with obliterations of the 1st day in Lisbon, Porto, Funchal and Ponta Delgada. The collection was designed by ATELIER ACÁCIO SANTOS (illustrations by Hélder Soares). The research/elaboration work on the topic was carried out by Pedro Pinto (a name well known in the classic motorcycle scene in Portugal).
The collection consists of eight stamps (four stamps + 4 stamps philatelic block), each one evocative of a moped/motorcycle model produced in Portugal: - face value: €0.30 - 1935, SMC-NACIONAL, 500cc - edition of 380,000 copies - face value: €0.52 - 1959, FAMEL FOGUETE, 50cc - edition of 230,000 copies - face value: €0.61 - 1955, VILAR CUCCIOLO, 50cc - edition of 230,000 copies - face value: €0.61 - 1952, QUIMERA ALMA, 50cc - edition of 60,000 copies - face value: €0.61 - 1958, CINAL PACHANCHO, 50cc - edition of 380,000 copies - face value: €0.61 - 1965, SIS SACHS V5, 50cc - edition of 60,000 copies - face value: €0.61 - 1985, CASAL K287 (in fact the real designation of this model is K276, the designation K287 is in fact a jackdaw), 125cc - edition of 60,000 copies - face value: €1.00 - 1969, CASAL CARINA, 50cc - edition of 230,000 copies
