Showing items in Stamps and Covers - St Vincent

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

St Vincent has always been popular with stamp collectors.  The classic issues in such rich colours make a spectacular collection.  The village postmarks of St Vincent have been actively collected for much longer than most countries.

There is little to interest the postal history collector in the pre stamp period but a high degree of specialisation is possible in other areas.  Registration marks, labels and rates, early air mail rates and maritime mail.

All St Vincent stamp collectors should possess a copy of the fine handbook by Pierce, Messenger and Lowe, 'St Vincent, the postal history, cancellations, postage stamps and revenue stamps.'

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

He was very unhappy stationed high up in the Fort and with fellow officers and men already falling sick. 'Since I came here I have had a continued fit of the Blue Devils.' In the first year of its service in the West Indies the regiment lost eight officers and 136 men but remained as the garrison on the island till 1809.
