  • Losnr. : 4001 Ecuador

    1865: ½ real green on greenish wove paper, a fresh and fine Plate Proof on ungummed paper with large margins all round, two minor age spots at right. A scarce and most interesting Proof in the issued colour of the 1 real. It is stated that the issue was designed by Emilia Rivadeneira who copies the Greek Large Hermes Heads for her design. This Plate Proof matched very closely the Large Hermes 5 lepta value both in colour and the shade of the paper - indeed the three original stamps are in the shades utilised for the 5, 10 and 20 lepta values.

    1865: ½ real - a horizontal Proof pair struck in black on extremely thin, almost pelure paper, with large margins all round and already showing the misalignment between the clichés, some minor black spotting due to the weight of the gum on the thin paper. An exceptionally rare Proof. Signed Bühler.

    1865 (Jan 1): First Printing Group ½ real bright ultramarine on greyish wove paper with slight surface blueing, fine impression, the superb unused block of 42 being the right hand half of the sheet of 84 subjects, positions 7-12, 19-24, 31-36, 43-48, 55-60, 67-72, 79-84, with the sixth stamp showing a small tear, full marginal rule vertically at right and horizontally at both top and at base, minor bends between rows and some colour loss in small patches but this is of no real significance as this multiple represents the largest recorded of the First Printing where only two other large blocks (of 12 and 18) exist.
