Showing items in Stamps and Covers - British Guiana

Postage stamps, booklets, flight, censored and maritime mail and philatelic covers of British Guiana, now Guyana, for sale.

Collecting stamps and postal history of British Guiana remains, surprisingly to me, popular, despite the lack of stamps and covers on the market.  I would recommend all serious collectors of British Guiana philately obtain a copy of the fine handbook by Townsend and Howe, Postage stamps and postal history of British Guiana.

Post and packing is extra but does not increase however many items are ordered.  Inland £1, Europe £1.50 and Overseas £2
