BARBADOS: 1937 (Oct 12) all-up air endorsed "Australia-London-British West Indies via USA" with KGV 1d & 4d + Hermes No Wmk 1/6d pair tied by Melbourne cds, 'BARBADOS/8NOV/1937/GPO' machine arrival b/s. [Neither Walker nor Breckon list pre-1942 rates to Barbados. However, to Trinidad, the rate for all-up air was 3/5d. Ted Proud states that airmails were off-loaded at Trinidad, then sent by sea to Barbados]

BRITISH GUIANA: 1931 (Apr 13) registered cover from Sydney to Georgetown endorsed "Per SMS Ventura" & "Per USA/Air Mail" with rare franking of KGV SMult Watermark Perf 14 1/4d (Cat $1500 on cover) + 3d Airmail, San Francisco Atlanta & Miami transit b/s & 'AIR MAIL GPO/13MY31/BRITISH GUIANA' cds which suggests it was also flown Miami-Georgetown, some creasing that just impinges on the 1/4d. [There was no gazetted rate from Australia until 1934. The rate paid appears to have been 2d Empire letter rate + US airmail surcharge 7d x2 + 3d registration = 1/7d]

JAMAICA: 1941 (Oct 9) censored mercantile cover with 9d Platypus & 1/- Lyrebird block of 4 tied by Sydney cds, Clipper h/s in black, central vertical fold & minor soiling. [Martin Walker states the rate was 3/11d air to USA, then surface to destination - which seems unlikely, as the rate to the States was 4/- - or 4/9d by all-up air]

ANGUILLA: 1967 'Independent/Anguilla' Overprints on St Kitts-Nevis c to $5 SG 1-16 complete, unmounted, Cat 25,000. The key QEII set of the entire British Commonwealth & the first mint set to be offered in Australia for many years. Separate BPA Certificates for the 60c to $5.

This was a very limited provisional issue. Of the denominations between c & 25c, no more than 4250 (the 2c) were produced. Of the higher values the numbers were 50c x175, 60c x100, $1 x175, $2.50 x225 & $5 x225. It is not known how many used or CTO sets exist but they are catalogue at 4250 (about one-sixth of the mint price).

At the time of issue, and for some years thereafter, many collectors still hinged their stamps into albums. Consequently, very fine unmounted sets are in extremely short supply. A similar set to this was sold at a London auction in 2017 for 24,000 indicating that the catalogue value is actually conservative or, if you prefer, one of very few in the book that is accurate!
