  • Lot# : 126 Peru

    1862/63: 1 d. pink, used examples (2) on a document dated 14 Oct 1867 from Cajatambo, used in lieu of 1866 Fiscal stamps which were unavailable in smaller towns such as Cajatambo; each one affixed to create the 'Sello Quinto' denomination of 20 centavos and cancelled in manuscript; also a further example circa 1868 with a single 1 d. green on front but the second page (which would have borne a further adhesive) is missing. Unusual and seldom seen, with no similar examples in recent collections (Eitner, Goeggel, Badaracco) sold through Corinphila.
