International Postage Meter Stamp Catalog/Guernsey

< International Postage Meter Stamp Catalog

GuernseyEdit

  • A dependency of Great Britain, Guernsey’s own meter stamps did not appear until 1969. Before that date British stamps with “GUERNSEY/ CHANNEL ISLANDS” (or “CI”) in the town mark were used.
  • All franks contain “Guernsey” and a map of the Channel Islands.

NOTE: Catalog values are not given for the meter stamps of Guernsey because no market appears to exist for them. Although the authors have not seen stamps in Sterling (£sd) currency, meters came into use before the change to decimal currency and no doubt exist. Sterling currency stamps would be far scarcer than decimal stamps.
