Hello,    Today Barbados.  The Caribbean island has been in the news lately as I guess everyone knows, with it declaring its complete independence from Britain by removing all Queen Elizabeth II as head of state and making Sandra Mason its president.  

This stamp from the  1935 Silver Jubilee issue, often called the Omnibus issue and an issue  which has some interesting  varieties. Always good to have a  respectable catalogue so you can check any copy you have - to see if you have a  pretty pricey stamp rather than the basic issue.   This is SG 243, but there is a copy SG 243m with a variety (flaw) known as the "bird" by turret variety  with a 2021 SG catalogue price of £400 used - this as the basic stamp used is catalogued at £6.50.

 Enjoy your stamps and especially at
