Showing items in Stamps and Covers - Barbados

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

Barbados philately is currently one of the most popular areas in the West Indies.  There is not much pre stamp postal history available but the large range of classic issues more than make up for this.  A collection of classic Barbados stamps can be stunning.

Collecting the Parish postmarks of Barbados is a challenge especially the early numeral cancels.

For those collecting Barbados stamps I can recommend Edmund Bayley, Stamps of Barbados handbook which I have available.  Barbados Post Office Markings to 1981 by Clarke, Radford and Cave is a must for postmark collectors.

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