General Philatelic/Gen. Discussion : Varnish Used On Stamps?

U. S. A. issued stamps in 1902 with a varnish square, I suppose (I don't know for sure) to prevent reuse of the stamp.

Did other countries also use varnish on their stamps before 1902 and for what reason?


I don't know if this posting is posted in the right topic or not?

as far as I know older Austrian stamps (before 1918) come in both varnished and unvarnished versions (diagonal stripes) and older Russian stamps also have something like that (varnish lozenges).

re: Varnish Used On Stamps?

The British Post office did issue some stamps with a varnished coating. One example is the 9p Machin definitive from 1976, Stanley Gibbons Specialized U174, which had phosphor bands printed over a varnished coating
