Lot Photo Description
Lot 6451
Colombia, 1920, 10c green Flier in Plane Watching Biplane (Scott C11), A pristine complete pane of 72, fresh from the lithographer's stone. The designs were laid down in blocks of four, with resultant minor mis-registrations between blocks readily apparent. The full sheet layout—two horizontal panes of 72—can be surmised by the ragged left-hand margin (in contrast to the cut top, right and bottom sheet margins). Without gum as issued. Overall fresh and bright, though expect an age spot or two or minor marginal wrinkle.

A great find for the Colombian aerophilatelist, or for your inner printer's devil. Scott $4,320 .
Suggested Bid $1,000
