Stamps of Barbados

by Jonathan

Found an interesting article on old Barbados stamps on Wikipedia that includes some nice high-resolution scans of old stamps.

Current stamp catalogues list over 1,000 different stamps as having been issued by Barbados since 1892.

Barbados attained self-government on October 16, 1961 and independence within the Commonwealth on November 30, 1966.[6] An independence issue was issued in 1966 which included stamps of the Hilton Hotel and cricketer Gary Sobers.
