Showing items in Stamps and Covers - Bahamas

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

There are many facets to Bahamas philately.  The lovely classic Chalon heads form a fine study for the stamp collector while the wealth of Out Island postmarks provide a challenge to the postmark and postal history collector.

The best guide to Bahamas stamp issues is the handbook by Gisburn  Postmark collectors and those interested in postal history should read Morris Ludington, Bahamas early mail services and postal markings.

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