I collect stamps from the British West Indies. One of my favorites is Trinidad & Tobago.

The stamps feature an interesting design, especially the high values.
During the reign of King George V, there were three different designs used and a watermark change. The first King George V set was issued beginning in 1913 on paper watermarked Multiple Crown CA, and was used until it was replaced with a new Multiple Script CA watermark in 1921.

This set is interesting because of the many papers and color variations that occurred during the production of these stamps. It is a challenging set.

I have posted images of my collection with their associated catalog numbers and descriptions from the three catalogs that list these stamps. If you collect this stamp and want to see the various stamps identified, please visit the URL shown below:

in the 1 pound stamp.

KGVI - Wow, I am truly impressed by your website. That's a lot of good work done in analyzing papers, shades, perfs etc - and sharing it all with fellow collectors. I particularly appreciate the display of KGVI keyvalues e.g. for bermuda - very useful reference. Hope you'll maintain your site for many years to come - thank you

Thanks I am glad to hear you like it. Not every image is from my collection, some have been provided by other collectors. So feel free to let me know if you have any of the missing images.

I have been adding a page or two each week. Kind of my semi-retirement project. Currently I am working thru Malaya, but hope to add a number of King George VI sites after that is finished.

You might also like the Flaws page if you collect them. Richard Lockyer who found many of the flaws listed in the Stanley Gibbons Catalogue is sending me scans of his flaws. Currently there are 150 flaws listed on the site. Here is the URL if you are interested:
