The 1 Peso "Without Map Boundaries" 1PCL

The 1 Peso "without map boundaries" received heavy usage on international airmail covers. It is a surprisingly rare stamp otherwise because it was replaced by the 1 Peso Antartica value. This is the reason why there are no 1P1L values. The 1PCL paper has watermark 1, yet backscans like the one shown here fail to show it. A scan of the paper from the back, treated with some digital filtering, though, reveals the rippled watermark caracteristic of this value. Here are quick links to the 1 Peso value with map boundaries, and the 1 Peso values without map boundaries: 1P1E / 1PNGR / 1PNOP / 1P2 / 1PCL
