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

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
