Double transfer on the first issue’s 4 reales

Every country’s first issue always attracts lots of attention from collectors. Well, Costa Rica’s first issue is not the exception. A really nice design and engraving makes this issue a real gem. It’s try that it’s easy -and relatively cheap – to get it, but the postal history is another story.

Also, there is the most known error in this issue: the double transfer on the 4 reales.

It’s easy to identify: located on the “Republica de Costa Rica” legend on the top. There are some traces of a double transfer on the stars and the “cuatro reales” legend.

If this jewel comes across your way…grab it while you can before someone else does it!
