Republican censor marks of 1936 not belonging to main cities are very rare. During the first monthes of the war many censor marks were improvised, and they stopped being used later, when censorship was centralized. Ernst L. Heller published the catalogue "Marcas utilizadas por la censura republicana de la guerra civil española" in 1995 with all the Republican marks known until that moment. From then on very few new marks have been discovered. The mark in this lot is extremaly rare.
