Showing items in Stamps and Covers - Leeward Islands

Postage stamps, booklets, flight, censored and maritime mail and philatelic covers of Leeward Islands for sale.

It is a struggle as a dealer to cope with the demand for Leeward Islands stamps.  Collecting the many flaws on the small and large key plates requires many copies.  Blocks and full sheets are particularly sought after.  Some brave souls are attempting to collect the issues with postmarks from each of the different islands these stamps were used in.

Serious collectors should try to read the following works:-

Robson Lowe, "Encyclopedia of British Empire postage stamps.  Vol VI - Leeward Islands."

BCPSG "Leeward Islands.  A postal history anthology."

Key-platers should see the works by Fernback (small key plates), Glazer (KGV large key plates) and Dickgiesser and Yendall (KGVI large key plates)

Post and packing is extra but does not increase however many items are ordered.  Inland £1, Europe £1.50 and Overseas £2.

CAPON Richard and GIBB Bill & STEWART George The Farthing BWISC 2021 102pp. 1st ed., new in card covers. The humble farthing, which not that many people will remember, was the cost of posting Printed Papers locally in some colonies of the Empire. Most were in the West Indies. This book catalogues all of these stamps and shows some very uncommon uses. The coverage extends outside the West Indies to Malta in particular and also to Fiji. There are instances where farthing stamps/labels were used as revenues in Australia, South Africa and diverse places, such as Heligoland. There are listed examples of the farthing labels used in the Highland Railways of Scotland. Places where farthing stamps were used are all covered and as a special treat there is an appendix showing some rare uses from the Ronald Rong Collection
