Showing items in Stamps and Covers - Antigua

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

A good collection of stamps and postal history of Antigua can be formed.  Thanks to the Codrington and Tudway correspondences and several other archives a wealth of pre stamp covers exist.  

There are not many sources of information on Antigua philately.  I would recommend the Robson Lowe Encyclopaedia Vol. VI  also the Codrington Correspondence by Robson Lowe.  There is also a fine series of articles on the classic issues published by the BCPSG. 

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