The Fiji King George VI set of stamps were printed from 1938 until about 1952. The stamps were printed by both De La Rue, and Waterlow. As happens with King George VI stamps, the De La Rue stamps are very interesting due to the design changes, varying perforation, and color shades that resulted from production problems and World War II supply issues. The Waterlow component are typically all about the same with minor differences in the paper and gum.

The pages were created using 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. The relevant Commonwealth numbers are listed for most of the applicable printings. The listings of "PSxx" were created to tie into the Potter & Shelton listings. They are unique to my collection, so won't tie into anything you might find familiar.

The pages are from my collection, and 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.
