1046 6 image1861-62, ½r. orange, rich shade, good to very large margins, tied by clean strike of "Correos/La Guaira" c.d.s. in blue, paying the single weight for the first distance after entering Venezuela at La Guaira for onward transmission to Caracas, on 14 October 1861 cover from Le Havre, paying the double French rate to Venezuela on dispatch with 1853-54 20c. blue, type I, and 40c. orange, tied by "1495" dotted lozenges, with Le Havre maritime c.d.s. and boxed "P.P." in red alongside. A filing fold has caused a horizontal tear which is clear of the franking and closed with hinges on reverse. An extraordinary item featuring the only recorded genuine French-Venezuelan combination franking to include the first Venezuelan issue. Of tremendous visual appeal and, without doubt, can be ranked as one of the great combination frankings in French postal history.

1047 6 image1861-62, ½r. orange, a striking left sheet-margin example, mainly large margins on the other sides, tied in transit by "Correos/Nov 4/La Guaira" c.d.s. in black, on entire letter from Puerto Cabello on 31st October 1863 to Caracas. This is the only example recorded on cover of this cancellation in black, which, in view of the extensive usage of this datestamp, makes this cover an exceptional rarity. The late use of this stamp was the cause of being applied in an exceptional colour for the period in which this issue was mainly used. In addition. A marginal example on cover increases the rarity factor. Cert. Moorhouse (2011).Provenance: Heister. (Image1)

1048 2 imageThe Unused ½ Real, First Issue, Error of Colour. One of the Two Most Important Items in Venezuelan Philately. 1861, ½r. red, Error of Colour, adopting the shade of the 2 reales values instead of that corresponding to this denomination, uniformly balanced margins which are large on three sides, ample at right, vivid colour clearly exhibiting the error, unused without gum. Very slight vertical crease which is absolutely not noticeable on front, and minute surface scuff on reverse, none of which being of any significance for a unique item of this category.. This stamp is noted to have been in the Ferrari collection but it was not specifically mentioned in the Ferrari sale catalogues, but was, in all probability, included in the small but important group of Venezuela 1859-62 period which was offered as part of Lot 658 in Sale No. 9 (11 April 1924). The similar single error of colour of this denomination, but from the Fine Printing, is also offered in this sale. Both errors, which are believed to have emanated from the Ferrari collection, would have been the most important items in the 1924 Venezuela assembly.. One of the two most important items, along with the other error of colour, of Venezuelan philately, with the present item originating from a different printing and being unique in an unused condition. A great gem of South American philately. Catalogued in the Scott for US$250,000. Cert. Moorhouse (2011).Provenance: Ferrari, Foster, Hubbard and Heister. (Image1)
