| /A dark ultramarine shade, clear impression with complete 8th November 1867 Alausi cancel. An elusive cancellation.
| /One of the scarcest cancellations of the second issue with less than six copies of the red Manta CDS known.
| /An early franking from 1875 on piece. Particularly desirable as this red cancellation was only used in Quito for a short period of time.
| /Four margin, genuine stamp with a pretty but highly suspect star cancel. The stamp was a reduced rate value, used for posting newspapers.
| /Broad C in Centavos Escudito with no accent on U variety, showing the partially worn plate. Four margin, bright carmine-red, vertical strip of three on piece with late-use, double Gualegualchu handstamps. A scarce and attractive multiple.
| /Broad C in Centavos Escudito with no accent on U variety, showing the partially worn plate. Four margins, close at bottom left, with Buenos Aires CDS dated 15th August 1863.
| /Broad C in Centavos Escudito with no accent on U variety, showing the partially worn plate. Pretty blue, mute cancel with stars in rhomboid design. Proven to belong to Gualeguaychu, although attributed by Kneitschel and Solari to Parana.
| /This issue was overprinted to avoid speculation, when it was discovered that the Italian printer was selling additional copies on the side. Only 5000 stamps overprinted. Fine used.
| /From the fifth Escuelas series. Fine used with no evidence of prior hinging. Ex Moorhouse stock with original listing. An elusive stamp and undercatalogued.
| /Reconstruction of the twelve transfer types, laid out as printed with surrounding images illustrating how to identify each type. All stamps are four margins, most are generous (apart from Type 12, which is close). An attractive and useful assembly. 2019 Hernandez Rocha certificate.
| /Full four margin example of this classic invert with 1872 Emsing Class 5.2 cancel. In excellent condition with well balanced margins and no evidence of prior hinging. Expertization mark to reverse together with Diena signature in pencil. 1962 Diena certificate.
| /ecntavo error, displaying identical oversized height and wide bottom margin as illustrated in G1. Lightly used with expertiser's mark in violet to reverse, showing slightly through the vignette.
| /Choice example of this issue with a crisp impression, very good centering and a clear SON CDS from 1874. Small pencil notation to reverse.
| /Block of eighteen stamps showing the double 1c surcharge error, currently unpriced in Scott. The block contains the 'dropped n in Centavo' variety, only found in position 27 on the sheet (middle row, second from right). The block is MNH, inferring CTO with a mute violet star in circle cancel. A scarce item.
| /With network. Scott 'Type a', thick figures. Inverted overprint with oval Franca handstamp.
| /A very nice strike of the violet Santo Domingo Franca handstamp on a pair of the one centavo value. Used multiples are scarce.
| /Very undercatalogued in Scott, about right in SG, the Costa Rica SCADTA stamps were handstamped in very low numbers (ignore the image in Scott which shows a false machine cancel - the Costa Rica overprints were all handstamped, except the 30c which was also machine stamped in Berlin). There were only 75 overprints of the 60c and just 50 examples of the 1 peso. Two shades of the 30c value are included in this short set.
| /September 1854 Desmadryl printing, watermark position 1. There is an optimistic pencil notation on the reverse of the stamp 'verdoso' (greenish). I am more inclined towards slate blue. Four margins tight to right and a crisp impression. Expertizer's/owners mark to reverse.
| /Recess printed by Gillet in the distinctive burnt sienna shade with a light cancellation. Watermark position 2. Three very good margins with the fourth just touching at top right. Pencil notation to reverse.
| /Perkins Bacon first London printing, watermark position 1. Four margins, tight to lower left and upper right. SON four concentric ring cancellation.
| /Perkins Bacon first printing, watermark position 4. Four margins, very tight to left but not touching. Four concentric ring cancel on blued paper. Owner's/expertizer's mark to reverse.
| /'Blue line above head' variety, only found on plate positions 11 and 17. SOFICH 158a.
| /Fresh strip of four on piece with two double ring Jundiahy (Jundiai) cancellations, dated July 1886. RHM 64 'Quadras'.
| /Vertical pair with double cork cancels showing part ABNC imprint at base. RHM puts a 30 x premium (!) on the 80r value as a pair, so I presume multiples must be infrequently found.
| /Used pair of the perf 12 variety and tougher as a multiple. Hinge remnant. Small corner fold to right hand stamp.
| /Argentine Confederation, small figures of value. Full four margin example with clean Rosario cancel.
| /A common stamp with an uncommon cancellation. CHOR. abbreviation for Chorrillos. Emsing type E1 cancel.
