VERY FINE. ONE OF THE RAREST SETS OF ALL THE BRITISH COMMONWEALTH FROM THE QUEEN ELIZABETH II ERA.

The Postmaster of Anguilla strictly controlled the sale of this issue due to the short supply of stocks on which to overprint. No trade or overseas orders for mint stamps were accepted. Used examples can be found where people mailed letters or postcards from the island. However very few mint sets were sold over the counter, creating one of the rarest regularly issued post-war sets of the world.

With 1969 BPA set certificate for the 50c-$5.00 values. SG £18,000
