The Stamps and Postal History of Nyasaland

Most stamp collections of Nyasaland begin with the stamps of British Central Africa whose name changed to ‘Nyasaland Protectorate’ in 1907. Nyasaland’s first stamps were the 1d to £10 values of Rhodesia issued on 20 July 1891 overprinted “B.C.A.”.The rarest basic stamp of Nyasaland is probably the 1896 £25 black and green in mint condition. Forgeries exist of some of the high values from this period, others may have had their “Specimen” overprint removed, so expensive items must always be purchased from a trustworthy source.


The Large Key Plate 2 shilling to £10 values of the King George V reign are particularly interesting to collectors and a wide range of constant plate flaws such as “Bullet holes” flaw, or the “Damaged Crown” flaw can be found, many are rarities. Beautiful pictorial sets continued until and beyond the country being renamed Malawi in 1964.
