I'll bump this old thread and add an illustration of 4 stamps hinged together. Any information appreciated.





Teruel, Lugo, and Valladolid are Provinces in Spain.
Logrono is the capitol of La Rioja Province.

info:
1876 sociedad del timbre

The stamp stamps of the Stamp Company were issued in 1876 with the names of all the Spanish provinces. The effigy of the center represents the Kingdom of Spain. As it can be seen, it lacks face value, since its function was to be attached to the head of the new sheets and to provide proof that the postage stamps and the policies supplied to the tobacconists by the Stamp Company were authentic. They were printed in the United States by the state-owned American Bank Note Company.

Giving this a bump, after coming across it looking for info on these. I'm still not sure I understand their purpose. One correction: American Bank Note Company was *not* state-owned, it was a fully commercial entity.

For anyone with deep pockets, an original ABNCo printing plate is currently on eBay for the Jaen and Leon province stamps -- https://www.ebay.com/itm/American-B...353184432681

Here is an image that I found of one from Cadiz, on-piece. But we'll need someone who can read Spanish to interpret.
