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.
