1875 outer wrapper locally addressed to Brick Dam, a suburb of Georgetown, bearing a left marginal 1c, paying the newspaper rate, tied by a barred 'A03' canceller, with a GEORGETOWN 14 JY 75 datestamp on the back. Fine.
|1930c British Guiana|
An unrecorded photographic essay, mounted on a card with hand drawn borders, believed to have been designed by E. S. Truchet around 1930. Pictorial designs only reappeared in 1931 and this essay was possibly submitted for that 1931 issue but not accepted.
|1902 British Guiana|
1902 proof of the embossed FOUR CENTS design in orange red on stiff paper, measuring 56 x 56mm, that was used for registered envelopes in 1902. This value and colour was used on the 1898 registered envelopes but for the 1902 issue they retained the 4c value but changed the colour to blue. A scarce proof.

1946 6c registered envelope used internally with a 3c added cancelled MALLALI 14 FE 46. A precancelled Registration label is on the front of the cover along with a Wismar 14 FE 46 arrival datestamp. Both Mallali and Wismar are situated on the Upper Demerara River. A fine locally used registered cover.

|1915 British Guiana|
1915 picture post card (Town Hall, Georgetown) to England with a 2c tied by a good strike of the single circle T. P. O. E. C. RLY JUN 12 1915. (Proud D6) The written message starts 'N' 12/6/15. The 'N' is probably the writers abbreviation for the village of NONPAREIL which was on the railway line, five stops from Georgetown on the East Coast Railway. This village did not have a canceller.
