Showing items in Stamps and Covers - British Honduras

Postage stamps, booklets, flight, censored and maritime mail and philatelic covers of British Honduras, now Belize,  for sale.

Considering how little in the way of stamps and covers of British Honduras comes on the market this remains a popular area.  Little pre stamp postal history of British Honduras exists.  Collecting stamps of British Honduras is reasonably straight forward but proof material is hard to come by.

British Honduras does provide a paradise for postmark collectors with the delightfully named villages such as Double Head Cabbage which exist in different and mostly scarce temporary rubber date stamps.

For stamp collectors I would recommend the purchase of the relevant section of Robson Lowe Encyclopedia Vol. V.  Postmark collectors and those interested in postal history should look for the handbooks by the late Ed Addiss and the new work published by Ted Proud.

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

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 card covers 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.
