St. Kitts-Nevis
1952 Definitive Set

Updated - November, 2018

Identifying the St. Kitts-Nevis 1952 Set issues is very simple. There is only one listed color shade, all of the stamps have the same watermark. This is one of the easiest King George VI set to afford due to the low cost of this set. It was replaced by a similar set featuring Queen Elizabeth II in 1954.

Unlike modern stamps which are issued in the millions, definitive sets from this time period were issued very conservatively. I do not have the print quantities for these issues. Please feel free to supply the quantities if you have them.

The catalog numbers are from the 2008 Commonwealth King George VI Postage Stamp Catalogue (CW) published by Murray Payne, 2013 Stanley Gibbons Stamp Catalogue (SG) and the 2011 Scott catalog (ST). You can access the publishers using the "Links to British Colonial Stamp Sites" at the bottom of this page.

The images were saved in a larger size and at a higher resolution so you can more easily see the details used in sorting them. Please be patient if it takes a few minutes for this page to load. Although the two high values were issued first, the stamps are shown in value order below.
