| Barbados King Edward
VII Definitive Issues Watermarked Multiple Crown CA
Updated - June, 2017
Identifying the Barbados King Edward VII
watermarked Multiple Crown CA Badge of the Colony issues is primarily
a matter of determining the watermark, and then sorting a few color shades.
The design was used from 1892 thru 1910 with two different watermarks.
This article deals only with the issues watermarked Multiple Crown CA,
which were printed from 1904 to 1910.
Unlike modern stamps which are issued in the millions, definitive sets in the early 1900's were issued very conservatively. The 2/6 printing was issued in a quantity of 6,240 stamps. The quantities printed are from "The Stamps of Barbados" by Edmund A. Bayley.
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 is from the Commonwealth Catalogue. Please contact
