The King George V stamps of Nyasaland are particularly interesting to collectors because of the wide range of constant printing plate flaws which exist.

Great Britain declared ‘British Central Africa’ a protectorate in 1891 and started to issue postage stamps. In 1908, the Protectorate was renamed ‘Nyasaland’, and in 1953 it joined the postal territory of Rhodesia and Nyasaland. Stamps were issued from Nyasaland again In 1963 when it became an autonomous area, followed by Independence (as ‘Malaŵi’) on 6 July 1964.
