897 pP Gebauer 16 imageGebauer #16, 1920 30c on 10c Green, featuring a barely visible impression of the surcharge which may have faded with time, on cover front addressed to Barranquilla, tied by “Cía de Navegación/Aérea/Agencia Barranquilla” ribbon handstamp in purple, handstamped with “22 FEB 1920” date adjacent, and bearing manuscript inscription in Spanish at left: “Souvenir of the first airmail flight. Cartagena, February 21, 1920” and signature by Mr. Soto; one of just three covers recorded exhibiting the 30 centavos surcharge on this stamp; ex-Johnson. The cover, which is not flown, was not franked with the required national postage, and the C.C.N.A. adhesive is tied by a Barranquilla handstamp which was not applied on any of the regularly flown covers. Mr. J. Soto very probably made an agreement with the C.C.N.A. and prepared a very small quantity of covers to be given to friends, although these were dated as from the First Flight of February 22. Nevertheless, one may hypothesize, and it is also believed by few collectors, that these souvenir covers were flown on the first stage (Cartagena-Barranquilla) of the flight by the “Medellín” of 30 November 1920 (the plane suffered a breakdown at El Banco), since the surcharge of 30 centavos corresponded to the C.C.N.A. Nevertheless, this hypothesis can not be demonstrated and, on the other hand, the national postage is missing. (Image) Est. $750-1,500
