Sheet margin at left, tied by well-struck violet "Servicio Postal Aereo, S.C.A. de T.A." oval "Colibri" (hummingbird) cancel, used with National 1c and 2c tied by light Girardot Oct. 20 circular datestamp on corner card cover to Bogota (address erased), Bogota Oct. 21 and 22 arrival backstamps, cover with light file fold thru 50c of little consequence

EXTREMELY FINE AND CLEAR STRIKE OF THIS RARE "COLIBRI" CANCEL. EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST OF THE SEVEN COVERS WITH THIS DISTINCTIVE PICTORIAL CANCEL KNOWN.

This flight from Barranquilla to Girardot was flown using a Junkers F-13 named "Colombia". This was the only flight requiring a 50c surcharge. A contract was eventually signed with the Colombian government setting the fee at 30c. The "Colibri" handstamp was only used on this flight.

We record five from major collections - 1) ex Friedman, 2) ex Peinado, 3) ex Boonshaft, Johnson and Fletcher, 4) ex Goeggel (offered here) and 5) ex Ortiz. There is another example listed in Fletcher on pg. 110 and we believe there is one further example.

Ex Goeggel
