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 £1.50 and Overseas £2.

FERNBANK Peter E. and BLINCO Jeff & John King Edward VII Imperium Key Plates. Printings, plate number allocations and key plate varieties B.W.I.S.C. 2020 vii + 191 large pp. New in card covers A study of the Imperium style key plate issues within the 16 colonies that employed this design. The formats of the key plates are determined and a detailed plating study of Key Plate 1 is provided, a rare example of such a study on a surface printing plate, whilst the ‘Spaven’ and ‘Missing Frame’ flaws are examined in depth. Philately has long misunderstood the format of Key Plate 2 and its true size and format is revealed. A study is made of the damage sustained to the marginal areas of the plates, particularly the marginal rules, which can assist in determining the date of printing of certain marginal examples. Individual colony sections list all printings for each colony and the use of ordinary or chalk-surfaced paper is recorded for all printings. The basis on which the plate number allocated to each printing has been deduced is given. Additional information has been derived from the De La Rue and Crown Agents records, together with that from philatelic literature, and any exceptional events noted.
