1920 Compania Colombiana de Navegacion Aerea was founded September 28, 1919. In February 1920, the C.C.N.A. obtained a franchise to fly between Cartagena and Barranquilla and was authorized to issue its own stamps. This was facilitated by overprinting Compania Colombiana de Navegacion Aerea Porte Aereo and surcharging $0.10 on the Curtiss Aereo Plane & Motor Co. advertising labels. Less than 100 of each of the nine types were produced. These stamps were used on two first flights on February 22, 1920 from Cartagena and returning March 4 from Barranquilla. In July 1920, the air mail concession was passed to SCADTA. The C.C.N.A. ceased to operate in April, 1922. Eight of the nine values, unused without gum as issued, all with large margins all around (including Condor on Cliff which is normally cut in at left), fresh and very fine condition, without the usual faults that plague this most popular air post issue, most are signed Herbert Bloch, Sanabria, Kessler, Rendon, Roumet, with certificates from Friedl, Dien
