Barbuda stamps

P=have O=don’t have it

Barbuda is an island in the middle of the Leeward Islands in the Eastern Caribbean, north of Antigua. It has a population of about 1,500, most of whom live in the town of Codrington.

The Siboney were the first to inhabit the island of Barbuda in 2400 B.C., but Arawak and Carib Indians populated the island when Christopher Columbus landed on his second voyage in 1493. Early settlements by the Spanish and French were succeeded by the English who formed a colony in 1667.

In 1871, the island colonies of Barbuda (with Antigua), Montserrat, St. Kitts, Nevis, Anguilla, the British Virgin Islands and Dominica were joined to form the Federation Leewards Islands Colony; it's seat of administration was St. John's on Antigua. In 1958, the Federated Leeward Islands Colony was dissolved.

Antigua & Barbuda became an independent state within the British Commonwealth of Nations in 1981.

Barbuda had a separate issue of postage stamps in 1922 of overprinted Leeward Islands stamps (11 values). Apart from this, it used stamps of Antigua and Leeward Islands concurrently until 1968. During 1971-1973, Antigua stamps were in sole use. Barbuda has had its own stamps on a regular basis 1968-1971 and since 1973. Barbuda stamps are valid in Antigua and vice-versa (http://en.wikipedia.org/).
