Showing items in Stamps and Covers - St Lucia

Postage stamps, booklets, flight, censored and maritime mail and philatelic covers of St Lucia for sale.

Possibly due to the beauty of the island, St Lucia constantly attracts stamp collectors.  The classic stamp issues can form a lovely collection.  A plating study is possible but very difficult due to the large sheet size.

The type set postage due stamps are the focus of attention it seems at the moment while the more recent issues provide a colourful and straightforward collection.

Postal history collectors will struggle these days to find pre stamp covers.  Later Parish postmarks can be found but are difficult on cover.

There are two philatelic handbooks on St Lucia:-  Dr G.G. Ritchies "St Lucia.  A philatelic history." and Alistair Kinnons new work, "Piton Post."

FERNBANK Peter E. and BLINCO Jeff & John King Edward VII Imperium Key Plates. Printings, plate number allocations and key plate varieties B.W.I.S.C. 2020 vii + 191 large pp. New in D/W. A study of the Imperium style key plate issues within the 16 colonies that employed this design. The formats of the key plates are determined and a detailed plating study of Key Plate 1 is provided, a rare example of such a study on a surface printing plate, whilst the ‘Spaven’ and ‘Missing Frame’ flaws are examined in depth. Philately has long misunderstood the format of Key Plate 2 and its true size and format is revealed. A study is made of the damage sustained to the marginal areas of the plates, particularly the marginal rules, which can assist in determining the date of printing of certain marginal examples. Individual colony sections list all printings for each colony and the use of ordinary or chalk-surfaced paper is recorded for all printings. The basis on which the plate number allocated to each printing has been deduced is given. Additional information has been derived from the De La Rue and Crown Agents records, together with that from philatelic literature, and any exceptional events noted.
