| /Envelope to Germany at the 2.5p rate with the infrequently seen CDS of Tebicuary. Note red C 'Campana' (rural) overprint, only sold by agents in country districts and not often seen on cover, further compounded by the fact that Campana issues were supposed to be used for interior postage only. Buenos Aires transit marks to reverse.
| /Wrapper from Asuncion to London, UK, franked 10 centavos to pay the printed matter rate. Surface marks.
| /From the 1908 unissued series of officials. Nearly all of these stamps were used for surcharging with very few remaining unoverprinted. Expertisation/owner's mark to reverse. Quote from Joe Hahn: "All of the unissued values are very scarce. It has been stated that only a sheet or two of each exist". Undervalued in Scott.
| /Unissued block of four, the bottom two stamps being MNH. Quote from Joe Hahn: "All of the unissued values are very scarce. It has been stated that only a sheet or two of each exist". Undervalued in Scott.
| /Full sheet of one hundred gummed imperfs from the 1891 reprinting. Center fold, small tear affecting the last stamp at top right only.
| /Complete sheet of the 10c Blue Green, reprinted in 1891. The sheet allows the plating of the flaw at the foot of the numeral 1 in the left hand value tablet which occurs ten times throughout the sheet (see detailed scan). The sheet is divided into three blocks, one of 50 and two of 25.

| /Selection of SABNC plate proofs in a variety of denominations, colors and papers/card on Scott album page. An attractive assembly.
| /At first glance this would appear to be the die proof for either Scott 59 (1901) or 67 (1901-02) but note the numerals are in the style of the 1900 issue. The die was prepared for a 40c value in 1900 but never issued. Engraved by the South American Banknote Company, printed on glossy paper and die sunk onto beige stock card. Tape adhesion to reverse. Note that 'die proofs' on thin paper exist for this issue but are suspected reprints.
| /Five different varieties of the 1918 Habilitado overprints in blocks of four, including I) Double Normal II) Inverted III) Double Inverted IV) Double Normal & Inverted V) Vertical. See note after Scott 225 which mentions three of the five varieties. Bottom two stamps are MNH in each block.

| /Complete unmounted mint sheet of twenty-five stamps, overprinted Habilitado with the cancellation bar either shifted or missing entirely. The bar was supposed to delete the word OFICIAL, thus converting the stamp to regular postal use. South American Banknote Company imprint on all four sides, plus sheet number to upper right. Hinge remnants on the selvedge only.
| /Interesting error from the 1927-39 Interior Office issue, showing a mirror reverse image printed on the gummed side. Large part patchy, brown gum. Looks to be previously unhinged.
