Mauritius

1965 - 1968 Birds

The designs for these Mauritian birds first came out in 1965, and were reissued with an overprint 'self-government' in 1967, when the tropic bird came out. They were reissued for a third time in 1968 with different background colours.

If you only want the pictures of the birds, you could go for the cheaper 1965 ones. The others tend to have more appeal for serious collectors, though personally I think the 1967 blue background for the 3c Fody is more attractive than the 1965 one with the brown background.

1965 Birds

The 2c, 3c and 10c are shown here.

2c Bourbon White-Eye (yellow background) £0.05 3c Rodriguez Fody (brown background) £0.05 5c Paradise Flycatcher £0.10 10c Mauritius Fody £0.05

1967 Bird

2c Red Tailed Tropic bird £0.50

1967 Birds

Designs as for 1965, but with 'self-government' overprint The 4c is shown here 2c Bourbon White-Eye £0.10 3c Rodriguez Fody £0.15 4c Olive white-eye £0.15

1968 Birds

Designs as for 1965 but with different background colours.
The 3c is shown here.
2c Bourbon White-Eye (olive background) £0.95 3c Rodriguez Fody (blue background) £1.75

I have a few more of these 1965-1968 birds, including some higher face values, please ask.

Ordering stamps:

To order stamps, just email me alisonlever @ yahoo.co.uk and let me know what you want. I'll answer as soon as possible. This may not be the same day, but you do get personal service, and I am happy to search for stamps on just about any theme. There are a lot more stamps in stock than is possible to show here, so it's worth asking about your particular interest.

Please allow £0.95 (95p) if you come from anywhere in Europe, and £1.50 if orders are to be sent elsewhere. The postage charge is the same however many stamps you buy. This means that it's cheaper to buy more than one stamp, because the cost of packaging and postage is less per stamp. This reflects the time spent ensuring that the stamps are packed so that they arrive to you safely - it takes about the same time for one stamp as for larger orders.

Your stamps will be sent as soon as I receive payment. You can return the stamps and obtain a refund if they are not what you expected. Paypal is preferred, though other forms of payment can be negotiated. Euros are welcome as well as pound sterling.
