Sale Number 1226, Lot Number 1339, Colombia - 1859 First Issue, 20cCOLOMBIA, 1859, 5c and 20c Blue, Se-Tenant Pair (6b), COLOMBIA, 1859, 5c and 20c Blue, Se-Tenant Pair (6b)COLOMBIA, 1859, 5c and 20c Blue, Se-Tenant Pair (6b). Stone A, Positions 34-35, horizontal pair, the 5c error transfer at right, original gum, large margins all around including left sheet margin, rich color, fresh, small natural inclusion, tiny thin spots of no consequence

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. ONE OF FOUR RECORDED COLOMBIA 1859 ISSUE 5- AND 20-CENTAVOS SE-TENANT MULTIPLES. TRULY ONE OF THE GREAT RARITIES OF CLASSIC WORLDWIDE PHILATELY.

The 20c lithographic stone that specialists label "A" contained two significant transfer errors and one noteworthy retouched transfer variety. The first error is an inverted 20c transfer in Position 13, the second stamp in the second row. The other error is found in the fourth row, also the second stamp, Position 35, which is a 5c denomination transferred to the 20c stone by mistake. The prominent retouched variety is Position 25, the third stamp in the third row, which has been extensively redrawn on the stone to correct a poor transfer.

There are only four examples of the 20c tete-beche (three unused and one used pair), which are listed in the description of lot 1341. The 5c-20c se-tenant is represented by four multiples, all unused (no used examples are known). These four se-tenant multiples are as follows: 1) Positions 34-35, 20c-5c horizontal pair, original gum, left sheet margin, small thin, ex Ferrary, Caspary, Lilly and "Isleham" (Peyton), the pair offered here; 2) Positions 35-36, 5c-20c horizontal pair, light Blue shade, original gum, small thin, offered in this sale as lot 1340; 3) Positions 24-26/35-37/46-47, block of nine, ex T. W. Hall, Crocker, Newbury, Neuburger and "Islander", acquired by G.N.J. in a Cherrystone sale, offered in this sale as lot 1338; and 4) Positions 1-10 through 45-54, block of 50, ex Ehrenbach, Newbury, Neuburger and Dr. Goeggel.

It is remarkable that three of the four 5c-20c se-tenant multiples are offered in this sale of the Gordon N. John collection.
