Obviously this never went through the mail; presumably it was enclosed in a letter, a magazine issue, or given out as a promotional piece.

The Philatelic West ceased publication in 1930, so presumably this parcel tag was created in the teens or 1920s.

So most definitely NOT an actual improper use of a revenue stamp as postage, but it ties to my collecting interests nonetheless.

P.S. Love the British Guiana fantasy cancel.

Cool! The Hotel Worthy address piqued my interest. It was a grand hotel in its time where my grandfather used to hang out in the formal dining room with his pals and discuss magic. He was a well-known magician. He had dinner at the Worthy with the likes of Houdini, Blackstone and Howard Thurston. This was back in the 1920's.
