NEARLY FINE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 1850 8-CENT COTTON REEL. ONE OF THE CLASSIC AND ICONIC RARITIES OF WORLDWIDE PHILATELY.
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.
