Moorhouse (2011) Sanabria = $ 13'000.rnrnNote: The original airmail rate was fixed at 25 centavos per gram. There was no time to prepare a permanent issue and T. C. Pounds (owner of the one aeroplane in Honduras at the time) asked a local printer, Karl Snow to overprint the issue on previous definitives. Snow prepared his overprint (in a forme of 12) for the 1919 Morazan statue issue but the remainders of this proved to be too few and the format of the overprint, as shown here, would not fit the 1915 horizontal format 'Bridge' and 'Theatre' issues where there were stamps still available from Post Office stocks. The issue was therefore utilised and the above stamps are recorded used and the 25 c. on 1 c. chocolate is known on letter. The two stamps above are, therefore some of the rarest airmail unused stamps ever issued.rnrn
