Edward VII

Barbados Stamps | Edward VII

1902 – 1910

During the short eight year reign of Edward VII there were just six basic issues of stamps, these being a reprint of the earlier Seal of Colony stamps but with a different watermark, the Nelson Centenary stamps, the Tercentenary of Annexation stamp featuring the Olive Blossom ship, the Kingston Relief overprint in aid of the Jamaica hurricane relief fund.

There was also a reprint of the Nelson Centenary and a reprint of the Seal of Colony stamps, both of which had different watermarks.

Despite this there is sufficient detail in these issues with inverted and reversed watermarks and variations on the overprints to make them a study area in their own right.
