Unlike the majority of the British colonies, Trinidad never used Great Britain stamps, the first stamps of Trinidad being the famous Lady Macleod issues, produced by a local shipping company in 1847. Having set up a Postal Administration, in 1851 the first issues were introduced, using the undenominated ‘Britannia’ design. These were all 1d values in a variety of colours.
Tobago used the stamps of Trinidad from 1860 until 1879, when its own issues were introduced, but reverted to the Trinidad issues in 1896. In 1913 the two administrations were joined and all stamps were then inscribed ‘Trinidad and Tobago’.
