Greetings Fellow SB Boarders . I don't see a lot of water flowers in this thread. Here is one: . . BRITISH GUIANA -- SCOTT 255 . Fifteen engraved with lithographed center stamps (Scott 253-267) were issued 1 December 1954. The landscape orientated stamps are perforated 12-1/2x13 and the portrait orientated are perforated 13. All of them are printed on Scott watermark 4 multiple crown and script "C A". Nine of these stamps were re-issued between 1963 and 1965 with the multiple crown and print "C A" watermarked paper (Scott wmk 314). . Besides the water flowers (Victoria Regia Lilies) a couple of funny little jacanas are depicted on this three-cent red brown and olive stamp. . Respectfully,
I too, have one of those 15 stamps issued Dec. 1, 1954. The one I have in my collection is Scott# 253, G.P.O Georgetown. After examining the center of the stamp, I noticed that it was engraved and not lithographed like you stated above. Checking my 2008 Scott Catalog, Scott states that these stamps are indeed engraved, except for the $1 which is engraved with the center lithographed.
Just trying to clear things up (or stir the pot in my case),
