The name "Colombia", is of course from Christopher Columbus. At one point, the word "Colombia" was used as a term meaning all of the lands in the New World under Spanish and Portuguese control. This concept was promulgated by Francisco de Miranda, a Venezuelan revolutionary who predated Bolivar by a generation. This term did not stick. We use the term today, "Americas" from the explorer and mapmaker Amerigo Vespucci.
Estimated Value $1,500 - 1,750.
