Antioquia 1885: 10 c. grey-violet on PELURE PAPER, large margins all around, with part original gum. This value on pelure paper has been described by Santa María in his handbook as a renown worldwide rarity of which only 1,000 copies were printed. Illustrated on page 84 of Santa María´s ´´historia Postal de Antioquia´´ handbook. Santa María, after a lifetime of collecting, could only find this one example in mint condition, and suspected that maybe other unused copies could exist, a theory that has not proved to be the case, as unused examples have not featured in the other most renowned collections of this area; this copy was also the only recorded in unused condition in the famous Wickersham collection. UNIQUE, A GEM AND RARITY OF ANTIOQUIA AND CERTAINLY THE RAREST UNUSED STAMP OF COLOMBIA IN GENERAL. Certificate Dieter Bortfeldt; Colomphil AIEP. Ex Ferrary (3rd sale, 4.1922 lot 254) and Wickersham. Scott 28; Yv 28 = 3000 EUR (does not reflect the market reality due to a lack of offer)
