The Bahamas Stamps and Postal History

Bahamas Stamps – The use of postage stamps began in April 1858 using Great Britain stamps, which were cancelled "A05" at Nassau. The use of British stamps was brief however as in the following year the Bahamian post office became independent and issued its own 1d value from June 1859. These featured the "Chalon" portrait of Queen Victoria. This was along with symbols of the islands (pineapple and conch shell) and were only used locally. In 1861 4d and 6d values were introduced, with a 1s stamp appearing in 1865. In 1901, the Bahamas became one of the Empire's first producers of a pictorial stamp, with a depiction of the Queen's Staircase in Nassau.

Philatelic postscript - Stamps were first issued from 1859 and used the Chalon portrait of Queen Victoria.
