Ascension Stamps

Ascension was first occupied and garrisoned by the British in 1815 in order to thwart any attempt by the French to mount a rescue for Napoleon on the adjacent (1000miles south) St Helena. It became a major refuelling point on the South Atlantic runs and continues to issue its own stamps . Between 1862 and 1922 the first Ascension stamps were actually stamps of Great Britain used with Ascension cancellations - these stamps are highly sought after by collectors. In 1924 a series of stamps featuring the Badge of the Colony of St Helena was issued, a ship off the island; this issue provides collectors with many traditional printing errors to hunt, plate flaws including the “Cleft Rock”, “Broken Mainmast” and “Torn Flag” varieties.A pictorial set of Ascension stamps issued for George VI also produced a range of highly sought after errors including the “Mountaineer Flaw”, “Davit Flaw”, “Cut Mast and Railings”.
