Anguilla 1967 (4 Sept) 1c 'Loading Sugar cane', type 1 overprint on St Kitts-Nevis, SG2.

A very fine unmounted mint example with full original gum.

Rare in this condition. Only 2,800 were issued, most of which were used for postage. Because of the limited stocks available from St Kitts-Nevis for overprinting, distribution was controlled by the Postmaster and no orders were accepted to the trade.

Following the grant of Associated Statehood to St. Christopher, Nevis and Anguilla on 27 February 1967, the Island Council of Anguilla declared the island independent. These stamps from St Kitts-Nevis overprinted with "Independent Anguilla" were the first issued after gaining independence and were accepted for international mail.
