British Guiana 1st January 1942 $2 (P13c)
Toucan notes have a lot going for them. First off, you get a lovely engraving of a toucan, which is completely unique to British Guiana issues. There is also a touch of color to help the note have some extra pop. And it never hurts to have a portrait of King George VI. There is a very strong demand for mid-grade problem free notes like this. Price guides just can't keep up with this issue it seems. Similar examples regularly sell in our range listed here.
