Later, for a short period in the 1870's, an 8x8 point lozenge with the initials of the colony in the center was introduced. In Guadeloupe this cancel is very scarce and was infrequently used even during the 1870's. The high value franking on this cover involves the late usage of the 80c Eagle. Blocks of four of this value and combination frankings of the Eagle issue with the later Ceres values are rarities in there own right, but this extremely rare cover is the only recorded 80c Rose block of four with the rare "GPE" lozenge cancel; exceptionally attractive and a marvelous showpiece for the most advanced Guadeloupe collection; signed J.F Brun; ex-Levett.
