1995 – Unlisted Guyana FDCs

These two unlisted Guyana FDCs were just observed on Ebay. The stamps have Salvation Army overprint. The original issue of the stamps was in July 1985. The overprinted stamps were issued in April 1995 and commemorated the national SA Centenary. This cachet has the Guyana RED Coat of arms – a standard Post office cover that has been seen also on other FDCs from the country. It is unlisted in the SA catalogue, and as it has not been seen before (to my knowledge), it is likely very rare.

SA 3.3 – RARE Swiss FDC

Finally! I’ve been looking for this rare Swiss Salvation Army FDC for a long time and it just turned up on Ebay. The SA stamp celebrated SA’s 75th anniversary in Switzerland in 1958. French postmark (catalogue value CHF 70). Globe cachet, extremely rare to see on Ebay or other online auction sites (I’ve actually not seen it before). Estimated value at least £40++

1982 – Canada – Brockville FDC

SA 16 – Brockville – Reference cover!

This unlisted Canadian FDC was just observed on Ebay. It was issued by the Brockville Stamp club and must be extremely RARE, I have not seen it before!!! It was sold August 2020 in a lot for CA$ 220. NB! This is a reference cover – not in my collection (the picture is edited from another Brockville FDC as only the upper half of the Salvation Army cover was visible in the original listing).
