BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS

The stamps of the Virgin Islands belong to the extremely, and deservedly popular group of West Indian stamps. One of the most famous collectors of all times, said: “among all the fascinating pages of the well-filled stamp album, few are so arresting to the collector and to the profane alike as those devoted to the stamps of the Islands of Virgins”. This was the opinion of Frederick John Melville (1882-1940) one hundred years ago. He was so impressed as to say: “the charm of the designs, the technical interest in the stamps, and the immunity from really deceptive forgeries, combine to make the stamps of the Virgin Islands of unsurpassed attraction to the specialist”. **** READ MORE ABOUT BVI STAMPS IN THE "ARTICLES" SECTION OF THIS WEBSITE
