Rhodesia & Nyasaland stamps

The Stamps and Postal History of Rhodesia & Nyasaland

Sharp- eyed stamp collectors will notice a gap in the stamp issues of Northern Rhodesia & Southern Rhodesia and of the Nyasaland Protectorate between 1954 and 1963 when the Central Africa Federation of Northern and Southern Rhodesia and Nyasaland Protectorate was formed.The first stamps for Rhodesia & Nyasaland were issued on 1 July 1954 and a pictorials- only policy with a slightly- industrial theme gives stamp collectors the opportunity to complete the basic issues of a British African country which still includes some significant rarities, the most important rarity being the 1959 3d ‘missing Rhodes grave’ black omitted error. Philatelists also hunt the valuable 1961 Postage Due 1d & 6d ‘imperf. between’ pairs.
