Union Island Grenadines of St Vincent


When we saw John Watson's Iris Blue MGB on a postage stamp a few days ago, I think a few of us were surprised. But imagine my amazement to find this was not the first time our MGB has been celebrated in philately. The Grenadines of St Vincent in the Caribbean has been producing its own celebratory stamps since 1861. In 1983 they produced a nice MG on a $1.50 stamp - a red 1965 MGB GT! Then I found a 250K stamp with a red MGB from Malawi; a set of Jersey Motor Festival Classic Cars Stamps from 2005 with a yellow MGB GT; A blue 25c stamp with MGB Tourer from Liberia; and a 1963 MGB printed on a 5000 something stamp from Puntland State of Somalia. I bet there are more. There is even a history of forgeries! I think I will quit while I am ahead.
