1205   ImageBRITISH GUIANA, 1850, 4c Black on Yellow, "Cotton Reel" (2a; SG 3). Cut to shape, initialed "E. D. W." (Edmond Dalzell Wight, clerk to the Colonial Post Office), full frame line all around, Demerara double-ring circular datestamp, a few tiny margin tears and small stain above first "A" of "Guiana"

FINE APPEARANCE. A DESIRABLE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1850 4-CENT BLACK ON YELLOW COTTON REEL -- ONE OF THE ICONIC ISSUES OF THE WORLD.

The first stamps of British Guiana were issued in July 1850, in denominations of 2c, 4c, 8c and 12c. They were printed at the offices of the Royal Gazette of British Guiana newspaper. Quickly produced from printer’s type and a printer’s rule bent into a crude circle, the stamps earned the nickname Cotton Reel” from collectors because they look similar to labels on the wooden ends of a reel of cotton thread. Each stamp was initialed as a control to prevent either theft or counterfeiting. The E.D.W.” initials of Edmond D. Wight also appear on the famous One-Cent Magenta British Guiana stamp. Except for the very rare 2c value, the 4c on Yellow is the rarest of the Cotton Reels. The famed du Pont collection had just one off-cover example.

From our 1973 and 2017 Rarities of the World sales. Ex Chapin. With 1973 P.F. certificate. SG £24,000 (Image)

1206   ImageBRITISH GUIANA, 1856, 4c Black on Magenta (14; SG 24). Large to huge margins, remarkably fresh with the paper retaining all of its original depth of color, signed "EDW" by Wight, neatly cancelled by 1856 circular datestamp, faint vertical crease

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF THE 1856 4-CENT BLACK ON MAGENTA PROVISIONAL ISSUE. ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE WITH FULL SQUARE MARGINS AND WITH SUCH WONDERFUL COLOR.

The Provisional issue was printed in Georgetown by Baum and Dallas, who published the Official Gazette. It has been hypothesized that the issue was printed due to a delay in the arrival of stamps from England. Many examples are either cut to shape or have heavy creases which discolor the paper. The example offered here, despite having a very light crease, is a most desirable example of this world rarity.

With 1961 P.F. certificate. SG £25,000 (Image)
