Two 1940 air mail covers with 1E4 stamps

 In some cases for this issue, the colors used for a specific paper are unique. Such is the case in two instances shown here.

137. 3.95 pesos. The 1 peso value is a 1p1E4. That specific blue for the ocean is unique to this printing.

148. 1.65 pesos to the United States. All three 50 centavos are 1E4, the brightest carmine shade, not found on any other printing.
