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 and Overseas £3
