Minor thin, small corner bend and slight aging of no great significance, a scarce and most attractive multiple: this initial Trial Printing of what is believed to have been just 5 sheets (1'200 stamps) is irrefutably the most accomplished production of the first Colon issues. Cert. Corinphila (1996).rnProvenance: Collection 'Islander', Corinphila sale 95, Dec 1996, lot 804.
