Lou wrote: In Scott under heading 1973-1974 and C510 is listed as C510 ('74). Scott grouped the two together even tho they were issued almost a year apart and  numbered them in value order not issue date order.

#C511 was produced in a very collectible sheetlet of 10 which I have in my collection along with a first day cover, which were sent directly from the designer (who sadly didn't sign it). I did get him to sign the 1974 FDC, which for some reason, maybe to fill the empty space where a cachet would have gone, he stuck on a publicity sticker for the next year's exhibition in Spain. 

First Day covers of all the Guatemala 1973-77 Centenary issues are very scarce as none were no officialIy produced.  Only the 1973 issue had a special cancel, all the rest only had Primer Dia cancels.

Lou wrote: Pictured is Dr Rodolfo Robles, who in 1915 discovered that what was thought to be a mild skin infection actually led to severe vision problems- a disease called River Blindness. He found in skin lesions, the larvae of a parasite worm that would attack the eyes, and also discovered that it was transmitted by Black Flies. He developed treatments which greatly reduced the severity of the disease, but it is still the greatest cause of blindness in Africa, Central and South America.
