Antigua Collection Page Scans
The King George VI issues from Antigua were printed from 1938 until 1952. The stamps were all printed by Waterlow, so most of the difference you will find will be in the gum and the paper, rather than perforations like the De La Rue issues.
The King George VI issues are listed based on information presented by W. J. W. Potter & Lt. Col. R. C. M. Shelton in their "The Printings of King George VI Colonial Stamps" which was published by Stamp Collecting Ltd. in December, 1952. The publication listed tables for each of the countries' issues that were included. That listing is the starting point for the pages. The numbers listed under each stamp were derived from their order in the Potter & Shelton listings. (PS01 would be the first issue of the 1/2d value.) There is also a link to David Studd's Crown Agents report for Antigua showing the printings he documented. Unfortunately the Crown Agents did not report any color information, so you will have to try to figure that out for yourself. My pages were created before I obtained a copy of the report, so it does not include this information.
The pages are from my collection, and are identified
by the Commonwealth, Gibbons, and Scott numbers in that order. The page
images were scanned in a larger size and at a higher resolution so you
can more easily see the details used in viewing them. Feel free to select
the page and let it download to your screen and save it to your hard drive
for viewing. If you are using a PC, selecting the page will typically
open it in Microsoft Photo Viewer (or whatever you are using as your default).
From there you can enlarge the size for more close-up viewing. If you
are using a phone - go find a PC or a Mac. The images are 1200 pixels
wide and you will go mad trying to view them on your phone.
