#CLEU53 – 1923 20c Colombia (SCADTA) Consular Overprint, gray

Mint 1923 “SCADTA” Columbian Overprint Airmail Stamps...

Add this US back-of-the-book stamp to your collection today!

 
Back in 1920, a private airline called the Sociedad Colombo-Alemana de Transportes Aereos (SCADTA), was given control over carrying Colombian airmail.  It also produced its own stamps to prepay airmail fees.  To encourage foreign airmail to Colombia, these stamps were sold abroad at Colombian consular offices and trade missions.  They were then overprinted with one- or two-letter abbreviations to show which country they were sold in.  Stamps sold in the US were overprinted with the letters “E.U.” or “EU,” which stands for “Estados Unidos” or United States. 
 
Most US collectors don’t know about these historic stamps.  The gum has a little toning or evidence of time in the topics. I hope to look as good after 96 years. 😊
