4010 imageFirst Printing Group 1865: ½ real ultramarine on slightly greyish paper, a used example with four margins, clearly cancelled "Quito / Franca" datestamp "4 / ENERO / 65" - the fourth day of proposed issue and the first day of actual issue. Ex collection Olgieser. Unique.rnrnNote: The earliest recorded date of use for the Ecuador first issue is 4th January 1865 on this ½ real used in Quito and also on a 1 r. orange-yellow. The 1st January 1865 was a Sunday and it is probable the stamps were delivered to Post Offices on the following day and actually issued on the 3rd or 4th of January; certainly this last date marked the first shipment of adhesives to Guayaquil.
