Guyana is the third-smallest independent country on the mainland of South America (after Uruguay and Suriname). Its population is approximately 770,000, a majority (44%) of which are of East Indian descent. Guyana achieved independence from the United Kingdom on 26 May 1966, and became a Republic on 23 February 1970.
Now you understand why Guyana issued Gandhi stamps in 1969, 1993,1995 and 1998. Let's talk about 1969 stamp and FDC as this has some importance for Gandhi Philately as anything after 1975 does not make sense for collection as lot of stamps are popping after 1990 because of Mahatma Gandhi collectors.!!
In 1969 Guyana honored Mahatma Gandhi with 2 stamps with unique color combination. This stamp are 6 cents and 15 cents in value and has Mahatma Gandhi picture and "Charka" (spinning wheel).
Guess what, currently this stamps are selling some where between 15-75 cents (for both stamps). And recently FDC of this stamps was sold under $5.!! Can you believe it. !!
As per following stats, if you pay more than 75cents for Guyana Gandhi stamps(for 2 stamps) or $5 for Guyana Gandhi FDC then I think in future you will Quit Gandhi Philately.
Also same buyer bought another Guyana FDC for $21.
