Nevis Stamps

Nevis is one of the Leeward Islands in the British West Indies. Stamps were issued for Nevis from 1861 to 1883. In 1903 stamps were introduced for the combined colony of St Kitts and Nevis.

Early in 1980, the government of St. Kitts and Nevis decided to separate the stamp issuing policy so that each island would have its own postage stamps. Independent Philatelic Bureaus were established on each island and the first issue with individual names was released in September 1980.
