The Stamps and Postal History of Great British Islands

Between 1958 and 1969 the Channel Islands (Guernsey & Jersey), and the Isle of Man (until 1973), used stamps issued under the Great Britain Regional system but have produced their own stamps since becoming independent postal authorities.

A number of smaller GB islands produce stamps, not recognised for postal use on the mainland and sold as tourist souvenirs. These include Lundy, Sark, Herm, Shuna, Caldey, Staffa and a number of others, some with regular production and some more haphazardly.

Covering the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, Lundy and other local issues we offer stamps,stamp collections, complete stamp sets, errors & varieties, proofs, essays, postal history and covers including first day covers for this area.
