Please don't transfer this to the area where I'm trying to buy stamps!! These were used in Canada to speed up mail going to Columbia. I'd love to have a couple for my Canada BOB but really what I'd like to know is if any of you Canada or Columbia collectors have any in your collection that you could scan and show off! They exist for quite a few Countries with different overprints for the various countries but for some countries they are quite a bit cheaper. If you have any from the US I'd love to see those as well! I'm also curious if there were many fake overprints done. My Unitrade Canada doesn't mention fakes but I'm sure they must exist. Again, I'm not looking to buy, I'd just like to see them. I guess covers are exceptionally rare since a fair percentage of the stamps, Canada anyway, were not used. Actually my Unitrade lists the number produced and the number used. I just checked my Scott's US specialized catalogue and the US versions are actually quite cheap compared to Canada.

re: Columbia SCADTA Canadian Consular Overprints

Unfortunately, I don't have any stamps to show, but if you would like SCADTA album pages, I created a complete album which can be downloaded here, scroll down to Colombia.

The album is organized in accordance with the Sanabria World Airmail Catalogue 1966 which, although the prices are of course very much out of date, seems to be very comprehensive when it comes to coverage of these interesting stamps.

Despite being outdated the prices remain a practical comparative guide, with 65 catalogue entries for the US, compared to only 12 for Canada, many of the US overprints are as expensive as the Canadian ones, however, there are a few relatively cheap US entries.

Forgeries are known, but I have no idea how prevalent these are.

These are listed in the Scott Classic Specialized Catalogue as well, and images are available on this page from Colnect. My 2008 Specialized catalogue gives values of $100+ for the Canada overprints (with the exception of the 30c blue which is only $75 used).

Hi srolfsmeier,

I really like your message footer: Happy

Finn Family Moomintroll was one of my favourite books when I was young.

I was delighted to find a small Moomin shop in Bergen when I was there recently.

re: Columbia SCADTA Canadian Consular Overprints

Hi Nigel -

Nice to see another Moomin fan here! A friend introduced me to the series about the time I met my wife to be and we used to read them aloud for fun when we were dating (we are utter nerds). In my case this quotation is relevant as I stopped collecting stamps in high school and only a year or so later started collecting plants (to date I think I've collected more plants than stamps).

Steve

So as not to stray too far from the topic: I only have a couple of the US consular overprints and one from Venezuela that are in my price range (no scanner yet, sorry).

Hi Steve,

I'm afraid I can't show any SCADTA overprints for Canada but here are a few for some other countries:

Image Not Found

A = Germany, EU = United States, F = France, GB = Great Britain, S = Switzerland.
