These two islands with Anguilla became a presidency of the Leeward Islands in 1882.


Stamps continued to be inscribed thus until 1952, but Anguilla appeared on a map stamp of St Kitts - Nevis in 1938.


Issues of the Leeward Islands were used concurrently until 1952 when, under a Legislative Council, the name of the colony was changed to St Christopher, Nevis and Anguilla.
