CAPON Richard and GIBB Bill & STEWART George The Farthing
CAPON Richard and GIBB Bill & STEWART George The Farthing

BWISC (2021)
102pp. 1st ed., new in card covers.
The humble farthing, which not that many people will remember, was the cost of posting Printed Papers locally in some colonies of the Empire. Most were in the West Indies. This book catalogues all of these stamps and shows some very uncommon uses. The coverage extends outside the West Indies to Malta in particular and also to Fiji. There are instances where farthing stamps/labels were used as revenues in Australia, South Africa and diverse places, such as Heligoland. There are listed examples of the farthing labels used in the Highland Railways of Scotland. Places where farthing stamps were used are all covered and as a special treat there is an appendix showing some rare uses from the Ronald Rong Collection

1905 Barbados postcard charged postage due. The card marked 'Printed Matter' and franked with pair of d's which would have been sufficient however the sender had included a message on the picture side and so the 1d rate applied. Barbados heart shaped 'T' mark and U.S. postage due mark.
