FINE AND EXCEPTIONALLY RARE COVER FRONT WITH THE 50-CENTAVOS "G MEJIA" CONSULAR OVERPRINT. ONLY THREE COVERS OR COVER FRONTS ARE RECORDED.

In order to provide and encourage foreign air post service to Colombia, SCADTA made its stamps available at consular offices around the world. Gonzalo Mejia established an office in New York and signed stamps "G Mejia" to designate use from the United States. Two covers were used with the first for the sending to the SCADTA office in Barranquilla. The inner cover bore the consular stamp and a National stamp, such as the example offered here. The outer cover was removed in Barranquilla with the inner cover forwarded onwards by SCADTA.

We have recorded three covers or fronts. There is 1) Dec. 19, 1921 - unique 30c (2) and 50c combination, 2) Apr. 23, 1922 - 50c single on cover front (offered here), 3) 50c single (illustrated in Fletcher, pg. 77).
