St. Kitts-Nevis King George V
1923 Tercentenary Set

Updated - November, 2017

Identifying the St. Kitts-Nevis King George V Tercentenary Set issues is very simple. There is only one color shade, and all of the stamps have the same watermark for each value. Most of the stamps were printed on paper watermarked Multiple Script CA, but the 5/ and £1 values were printed on paper watermarked Multiple Crown CA.

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, but typical sets from other Colonies at this time were printed in quantities of less than 30,000 for the higher values during this time period. Please feel free to supply the print quantities if you have them.

The catalog numbers are from the 1980 Commonwealth Five Reigns Catalogue (CW), 2013 Stanley Gibbons Stamp Catalogue (SG) and the 2011 Scott catalog (ST). The description and dates are from the Commonwealth Catalogue. Please contact Bridger & Kay to obtain a copy of this publication. You can access the other publishers using the "Links to British Colonial Stamp Sites" at the bottom of this page.
