VERY FINE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1915 5-CENTIMES ON 3-PFENNIG. ONLY 61 WERE PRINTED. THE FEW THAT EXIST TODAY ARE NEARLY ALL USED.

VERY FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE STAMP WITH ONLY 36 PRINTED - EVEN LESS THOUGHT TO EXIST TODAY.
Of the major collections formed of French Colonies, nearly all are void of values of the 1915 printing from the 25pf to the Mark values. We suspect a small fraction of those overprinted are still available for collectors today, something which is confirmed by the high catalogue values given in Scott and Yvert.
Ex Reiners. Signed Bloch. With 1977 Friedl and 1994 Holcombe certificates. Scott $7,000.00. Yvert €11,000
EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1915 50-PFENNIG. ONLY NINETEEN WERE PRINTED. THIS IS PERHAPS THE FINEST OF THE TINY NUMBER AVAILABLE.
One of the rarest stamps in the entire Porter Venn collection. A mere nineteen were printed and fewer still exist today. This copy, with its choice centering, wonderful freshness, and complete cancel, is certainly among the most desirable of the few available to collectors.
With 1992 Holcombe and 2006 P.F. certificates. Scott $12,500.00. Yvert €18,000
