A COMPREHENSIVE COLLECTION OF COLOMBIAN MANUSCRIPT TOWN CANCELS. ONE OF THE LARGEST OF ITS KIND EVER OFFERED.

The majority of post offices in Colombia did not have handstamps, so they were pen-cancelled with the name of the town in manuscript. In many cases there is not enough of the cancel on the stamp to determine the town or the writing is illegible. When the town name is decipherable (such as the examples in this collection) they are highly sought-after by specialists. This is the largest collection of these we have seen and likely one of the finest ever offered.
