Anguilla Mint Stamps - Anguilla Newest Stamps

Colonized by English settlers from Saint Kitts in 1650, Anguilla was administered by Great Britain until the early 19th century, when the island against the wishes of the inhabitants – was incorporated into a single British dependence along with Saint Kits and Nevis. Several attempts at separation failed. In 1971, two years after a revolt, Anguilla was finally allowed to secede; this arrangement was formally recognized in 1980 with Anguilla becoming a separate British dependency.

Anguilla early overprint issues were brought to the market by Herrick Stamp Company. At our office on Herrick Drive appeared one evening the finance minister of the Anguilla Revolutionary Government. In his satchel was the entire post office stock of excess stamps now needed for mail.

To make a long (very long) story short. Herrick Stamp Company and Stanley Gibbons in London shared in the overprinted stamp stock brought that night and distributed stamps to collectors in London and New York on a per one basis.

Thus, mint and dealer overprints do not exist in dealer stock anymore as they were widely spread around. Used stamps were bought on the Island by traveling English dealer John King who distributed these to the London trade.

Later John Lister received the contract to produce stamps from Anguilla and he made such interesting topical stamp issues as turtles, Olympics, various bird issues and Royal Stamp issues.

Anguilla stamps are not held by dealers in large quantity and are probably the second most elusive recent issues from the Caribbean area. Barbuda is the scarcest of all modern Caribbean stamps.
