Sarawak Collection Page Scans

The Sarawak set of stamps featuring the image of Sir Charles Vyner Brooke were printed in various forms from 1934 until about 1947. They were replaced by a pictorial set in 1950. Luckily, all of the sets are easily differentiated from each other.

The initially issued stamps were overprinted in various forms, first by the Japanese for both postage and revenue purposes, and later by the returning British as the BMA overprint in 1945 and then with the Crown Colony overprint in 1947.

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.
