Collection of British Guiana early stamps - but not that one!

28th April 2015

Considered to have issued some of the rarest and most sought after stamps, British Guiana has a special place in all keen philatelists' hearts. In 2014 the only surviving example of the 1856 1c magenta, considered to be the rarest stamp in the world was sold for $9.5m.

Unfortunately we can’t offer one of those, but our June stamp auction does include a superb collection of early issues broken into 26 lots.
