Sale Number 1213, Lot Number 666, 1921-23 Provisional Surcharges (by Colomphil No.)COLOMBIA, 1921, "30 cent." on 10c Yellow, Air Post Registration (Colomphil 28; Scott C37 var), COLOMBIA, 1921, "30 cent." on 10c Yellow, Air Post Registration (Colomphil 28; Scott C37 var)COLOMBIA, 1921, "30 cent." on 10c Yellow, Air Post Registration (Colomphil 28; Scott C37 var). Neat violet Bogota SCADTA and "R" handstamps, fresh color, Fine, this is the unique example with the registration handstamp and illustrated in the Cruz-Bortfeldt book on pg. 75, a bit of an anomaly to researchers as the earliest "R" handstamp on cover recorded is July 1922 and no postal rate at this time included a registration fee indicating a possible trial handstamp, ex Gebauer, signed Schoendorf

Sale Number 1213, Lot Number 667, 1921-23 Provisional Surcharges (by Colomphil No.)COLOMBIA, 1921, "Valor 10 Centavos" on 50c Pale Green, Air Post Surcharge (Colomphil 29; Scott C17), COLOMBIA, 1921, "Valor 10 Centavos" on 50c Pale Green, Air Post Surcharge (Colomphil 29; Scott C17)COLOMBIA, 1921, "Valor 10 Centavos" on 50c Pale Green, Air Post Surcharge (Colomphil 29; Scott C17). Surcharge showing the upright "1" of "10" with the serif at top, lightly hinged, light gum bends, Very Fine, the Cruz-Bortfeldt book places this item under the "Forero" reprints of 1923 though we believe this to be the original surcharge (of Colomphil 2) as a) no covers are known (the other "Forero" reprints were used on cover and sent by him) and b) the "1" could have easily fallen out of the surcharge and placed back inverted, regardless only eight unused examples are recorded (four of which are contained in a block), signed Champion, Scott $1,500.00
