Channel Islands Collection Page Scans

The Channel Islands stamps were printed from 1941 until about 1944. In reality, they are really German occupation stamps rather than King George VI stamps. But they are listed in the various catalogues and are an interesting study. There are a number of color shades, as well as paper color changes, including paper type such as the Jersey Newsprint papers.

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.

Please be patient if it takes a few minutes for each page to load.
