1882 cover to Georgetown with a pair of 1c black on magenta, perforated ‘SPECIMEN’, tied by a LEGUAN FE 3 82 cancel with another strike alongside. A Georgetown FE 3 82 arrival cancel is on the back. Leguan is a small island situated in the delta of the Essequibo River on the coast of British Guiana, 20 miles from Georgetown. Minor cover faults do not detract from this very scarce franking.
