Former British Crown Colony, comprising the islands ST.CHRISTOPHER, NEVIS and
ANGUILLA in the West Indies, southeast of Puerto Rico. Stamp issuing started in
1903. From 1890 until 1903 stamps of the LEEWARD ISLANDS were in use (see also
separate issues for the individual islands of St.Christopher and Nevis before
1890). From 1903 stamps of both Leeward Islands and St.Kitts-Nevis were in use
concurrently, until 1952 when the name was changed to
ST.CHRISTOPHER-NEVIS-ANGUILLA (for later issues see under this heading).
In fact, the stamps of Leeward Islands continued to be in use until 1956.
