Set of nineteen labels, each with selvage at left showing various air post slogans and italic blue "Curtiss" at bottom, these include the nine designs selected for overprinting by SCADTA to produce Colombia Nos. C2-C10, bright and fresh colors throughout, missing the design for No. C3 as usual since only one or two examples are believed to exist

EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL AND RARE SET OF THE CURTISS AEROPLANE CO. PROMOTIONAL LABELS WITHOUT OVERPRINT - SUBSEQUENTLY NINE WERE OVERPRINTED TO CREATE NOS. C2-C10. A KEY SET AND FORERUNNER TO ANY COLOMBIA AIR POST COLLECTION.

The labels were produced for advertising for use in cigarette packs for the Curtiss Aeroplane Co. and feature the iconic Curtiss JN ("Jenny") in various scenes. The artist is unknown. Nine of the labels, without selvage, were overprinted by the Compania Colombiana de Navegacion Aerea (SCADTA) under contract with the Colombian Government, for use as Air Post stamps. The others were deemed inconvenient to arrange for the overprint or not appropriate for use. It is believed that 100 sets were purchased, though not proven, and only one or two of the Jenny in clouds design used for C3 were not overprinted.

With two 1995 Rendon certificates (one for the set eventually used for overprinting and the other for the unused set)
